Lovely pub in a lovely little village. Had a gorgeous goats cheese and beetroot terrine to start followed by steak and then bread and butter pudding! It was all excellent! Staff are fantastic and friendly and prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food on offer!

Came here for lunch last week with a friend from Australia (who wanted to eat in a good English pub) following a recommendation from somebody who had been before. Was quite easy to find and we parked right outside. The pub itself was cosy with a lovely roaring fire (which we chose to sit next to as it was a... More

The Swan, which does very good food, was closed so we went to try The Crown next door. The décor was very nice cosy modern but it was rather cold, my friend kept her coat on. You get a nice welcome from the lady at the bar. We both had haddock and chips and the fish was lovely - moist... More
