A lovely feel and atmosphere. Relaxed with the feel of a true country pub. A cracking place to call in for a great pint or a bite to eat after a crisp walk around Cowm reservoir. The beer is as good as you'll get for miles around. Food is always of good quality and plentiful. Nice staff who are always... More

Food really nice and fresh. I had lamb cutlets and was asked how I would like them cooked. Very tasty, I did have to ask for gravy though as the meal may have been a little dry but maybe that's just a personal preference for me. Veg were nicely cooked and I chose chips which were gorgeous. Service was excellent,... More

Booked a table for eight adults and three children when ordering the meals were told that there was no bacon for the all day breakfast which is bad when your son owns the butchers about half a mile away and no wraps this was only at 4.30 in the afternoon hope they can do better next time if I give...

Gammon, suet pudding, steak, fish n chips, that type of thing. All hearty good meals that makes you feel content when you've eaten. The beers and wines are of... More

A very pleasant pub, and the virtues of table service, not going to the bar.. the waitresses are always helpful, polite and friendly, the food is never bought in. Frozen, or in any way packet made. Good deals on the rib eye steak at the moment two full mains are 15 pounds. The best bit for me is the fact... More

Nice ambience, staff very friendly and a lovely setting. Beer garden very odd, tables on a slope so you have high chairs for adults. Food is standard pub grub, nothing special but also not poor. Wouldn't rush back but would pop in if in the area.
