  • We popped in for a bite to eat this luchtime we both had cheese burger loaded fries which were a revelation and absolutely delicious. The pub has been sympathetically decorated, very clean with a smashing garden. The lady who served us was so friendly and helpful! Our drinks were lovely and served quickly, and prices were reasonable. We will definitely return and thoroughly recommend it!!

Sunday roast was really lovely. I had lamb, hubbie had beef, good selection of inclusive veg and everything was cooked to perfection. The apple crumble and custard was yummy. Friendly attentive staff, nothing was any bother, made us feel very welcome. We look forward to returning, well done.

Kid-friendliness: Garden with plenty of seating, swing and slide and safe for the little ones.

Wheelchair accessibility: I use a crutch and had no problems getting around. Plenty of space for wheelchairs.
