Bloody brilliant. Arrived late but owner couldn't be more welcoming and food was delicious and exquisitely presented. What a luxury and yet very reasonably priced. I've recommended this village gem to all family and friends. We'll be going back very soon.

Visited today for a late Mother's day lunch. I had the bisque followed by the burger. The triple cooked chips are amazing and the burger was perfectly cooked and packed with flavour. Definitely worth a visit and a return is certain.
