Staff friendly & helpful, food good value for money, tasty & well presented. Quirky country pub. Just a short drive from where we were staying, good parking easy access.

Stumbled on this place on a Saturday night, famished and after a long drive from London, and wished that we hadn't. From the outside, it seemed welcoming, with a large carpark in front and at the rear of the restaurant. The small restaurant had a...More
