A beautiful village pub recently fully restored with a historic beamed bar, cosy snug room & elegant restaurant. A classic English beer garden and seating area to the front are great for Al fresco drinking and dining. 8 Brand new bedrooms opened during the summer 2016. We are proud partners with Lacons brewery and feature their range of top quality craft Ales.

Our food features traditional favorites as well as some interesting and great tasting contemporary dishes. Bar snacks and nibbles together with starters, mains, puddings and a children's menu ensures there is something for all tastes and occasions. From a scotch egg & a pint to a lovely 3 course celebration meal!

A lovely friendly pub/ restaurant with good food. We had delicious sandwiches and an excellent Ploughman’s for lunch. We sat outside in the shade on a hot day in the attractive garden.
Swift’s screaming overhead and even a Red Kite!
Great setting and a pretty village

Food was lovely and fresh and we didn’t have to wait long after we had ordered. There was a nice relaxing atmosphere with about half the tables taken during our mid week visit.

The service was very courteous and attentive. The quality of the food was excellent. The location was great enabling the two of us coming from opposite directions to find it easily. It was a very nice venue, inside and out.

It was my birthday. I was unaware the menu would be limited so was disappointed. Had chosen this establishment for the menu. We were the only people in the restaurant/bar but could sense the staff wanted us to hurry so they could close for the Euros football final.

The four of us enjoyed a relaxed and delicious Sunday lunch. We all had the roast - including the vegetarian who substituted a Bingham Blue tart. It was all very tasty, the portions were seriously generous and the service was very good. Can't wait to return.

Excellent choice of starters and dessert, but felt the main courses let it down this time. My lamb ballotine wasn't as expected and tasted quite dry. As always, we had an enjoyable evening out, this tine to celebrate our anniversary.

Excellent as always. Both of us had the crab cakes for starters, I then had roast beef and hubby had roast pork. All really tasty, the beef was cooked to the right degree of rare for me. Decided to have desserts, I went for the vanilla panacotta with rhubarb sorbet, baked rhubarb and crushed peanuts, an absolute treat, hubby had raspberry and white chocolate creme brulee which was equally well received.

Great food and service.
Only issue was - Pork roast didn’t state it was pork chops had assumed it was a joint of pork.

Now to the food… I will have dreams about their asparagus & blue cheese tart! It was fresh, simple and delicious! All our food in fact was gorgeous.

We tried this Resturant from Trip Advisor recommendations as we were on holiday in the area - what a find!
Excellent food served impeccably at a reasonable price. Only problem is it needs to be moved 130 miles North so it can become our local Resturant.
