Absolutely bloody, top notch Sunday lunch. Landlord was welcoming, funny and open hearted. We shared the poached egg, halloumi, spinach & sourdough starter and then the Roast Pork & Beef. My wife was especially complimentary and she’s hard a person to please. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, washed down with a excellent Fleurie. Do go there! Baz

Food was great! Unfortunately they had run out of chips and didn’t bring our drinks for a while, plus starts came before our first drinks which was abit disappointing. BUT the manager couldn’t of been more apologetic, and lovely! So Overall would recommend, but maybe not when it’s raining/windy!

Great friendly staff and the food was simple but great. We were surprised that the fish tempura turned out to be fish and chips but we thoroughly enjoyed it!

We had booked outside seating as this was all that was available. When we arrived, only one of two patio heaters was working, and a diner already sitting there said it didn't give effective heat, the fire pit was not lit, and all the seats were wet. We had booked the last sitting for lunch and many items on the menu were not available. We thought we needed to have burgers as any plated food would get cold so quickly in the outside seating area, but the only burgers left were the vegan burgers. There were empty tables indoors with a reserved sign on, which was weird because it was the last time-slot for lunch. The man behind the bar said no, we couldn't sit indoors. We left and found a late lunch elsewhere.

Lovely place with lovely people. The dishes are also good. We had lunch there on the last hiking in the English countryside right before the second lockdown and I made a right choice. Really hope they will get by the lockdown.

We tried this establishment after seeing some positive reviews and we were glad we did. It was very welcoming and the staff were really friendly and genuine. The food (we had the fish & chips) was great and we really enjoyed our visit. It was a bit out of the way for us but worth making the effort. Would love to pop back sometime. Thoroughly recommend paying them a visit!

Traditional and quaint pub. My wife and I were here for a Sunday Lunch and it was fairly traditional food of a good quality. There were good Covid-19 precautions in place which was reassuring.
