We stayed three nights before Christmas 2016 and could not have asked for a more welcoming, cosy and relaxing stay. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with minimal noise at night even though it was a busy time of year for the pub. We fought over whether the fish and chips or steak and ale pie was the best we'd ever had and the breakfasts were a special treat.
Went for lunch yesterday, great service, great food and a very varied menu, both lunchtime special as well as the normal menu. If you are in the area it is well worth a visit. Been in the evening as well and it was just as good then.
I had the goats cheese to start and the steak pie for my main course. Both were absolutely delicious - the pie tasted home made (filled with big chunks of steak) and came with crispy, thick-cut chips and mushy peas... perfect! The atmosphere is traditional and just what you want from a country pub, all whilst being completely unpretentious. Staff were friendly...
