A quick lunch time trip ended up being a trip to remember. The all round experience was absolutely lovely. The food was cooked to prefection and the pub itself lovely and clean with a very relaxed atmosphere. We were served by a very attentive and obliging young lady who couldn't do enough to make our lunch a very special experience. We will certainly be going back, hopefully as soon as possible. Thank you..

Visited today and found the staff to be lovely as well as patient with the customers. Tried the steak and chips, cooked ourselves on a hot stone. Very tasty. Delicious chips, salad and peppercorn sauce. Serving a good quality pint too. We sat outside which had the sun until around 8pm in the beer garden. Would recommend.
