    Took my fiance for her birthday 29/2. The pub was very quiet and welcoming with a roaring fire. We started with the mushroom stuffed with cous cous topped with cheese. We both had the beer battered haddock chunky chips and homemade mushy peas. Although the main dish delicious we felt there could have been a few extra chips. The dessert was the awesome sticky toffee pudding with no other than the custard to top it off with. All in all a very nice meal and ideal if it's an authentic village pub you're after midweek. If it wasn't for the 241 on the starter and main from taste card a little on the expensive side. Dave & Cathy. "

    " What an excellent Sunday Lunch! We both had beef (with all the trimmings) and it was very good indeed. Large portions, piping hot and very tasty. For dessert, I chose Sticky Toffee Pudding and my wife had Chocolate Brownie. Both excellent and my toffee sauce was outstanding!
    This is a 'proper pub' with excellent food. My only comment is that the Dining Room wasn't overly warm, so 4 stars there instead of 5. Otherwise, highly recommended
    Absolutely no problem using the Tastecard either. "

    We entered in through the court yard / beer garden which had beautiful flower pots and flower baskets scattered everywhere, very eye catching and well tended.
    We ordered starters which were both delicious, a parsnip soup and the other was black pudding something, both of these were well presented and very tasty. For our mains we had a beef and ale pie with mash and veg and also locally sourced sausages with mash and veg, which again were well presented and really tasty. We were stuffed but wanted to try the home made sticky toffee pudding, so glad we did...... It was divine!!! The food was a 10/10. I'm now starting my diet!!! But cannot wait to re-visit!!
    You will not be disappointed !!!! "

    Two of us were here at the beginning of February and had the steak followed by what can only be described as the best Sticky Toffee Pudding ever. All the puddings were home made and I could not fault the food at all.
    To be honest the dining table was a little too close to the sofas so all we could hear were the woman sat there drinking and moaning about work so I'd sit somewhere else next time but I'd definitely eat here again. "
