Join us to celebrate the Great British pub the way it should be.

We pride ourselves in providing a wide selection of real ales and tasty food made using local ingredients wherever possible, all to be enjoyed in a traditional pub environment.
We believe pubs should have roaring fires in the winter and you should be able to make the most of our all too short summers in our idyllic beer garden.
We look forward to seeing you soon.

The Landlord and staff are very welcoming and friendly and they make a great fuss of dogs. The food was absolutely delicious. Roast beef cooked to perfection and the trifle took us back to our childhood. Efficient, friendly service in what remains a ‘proper’ pub. Can’t fault it.

The pub is in a well used condition but for me that enhances the pleasure rather than detracts. The food was outstanding by normal pub standards. Large enough portion of pie and freshly cooked vegetables to not need a starter or a sweet. Freshly cooked on the premises and it showed. The only downside was the landlord who was far too pleasant and welcoming. Made me feel that there must be something wrong but I just couldn't find it! If you like nouveau quiche or steel and plastic then don't come here.

I booked a table through Opentable because of its high ratings and decent reviews. When we entered the pub, there were about 5 people sitting at the bar with one lady behind the bar. We stood awkwardly around for a considerable while before the person behind the bar finally said something. I approached the bar and told them of our reservation (the place was empty save for the people at the bar), and a lady tried to look for the reservation in an old book. I informed her that I had booked through Opentable. For the next 5-10 minutes I can hear her complaining to the people at the bar about how she hated Opentable and how people liked to book then cancel (we booked for 1pm and got there on time, I don't know what provoked the stream of long complaint which our presence clearly prompted was about). No one came to serve us, I finally had to go up to the bar and grab my own menus and told them again that we were there for lunch. By this time all children were hungry and starting to get fidgety. Our food took forever and it was average at best. The highlight was when a kind elderly man, I think he was the owner, walked by to tend to the fireplace and said hello/made small talk when he passed through. He was the only person there who made us feel like we weren't invisible. There were lots of other locals who came in and out, were greeted and spoken to, and a few more tables filled up. They all looked like they knew each other. I don't expect it to be like Cheers, but this was the most unfriendly pub experience I have ever had, particularly given that it was during the holidays. Absolutely horrible and never returning again.
