Customer Reviews

“We visited here on the first Monday they were able to open following Lockdown. All safety precautions were in place with clear instructions visible. Staff were efficient, polite even under the unusual social distancing restrictions. This was our second visit & we were not disappointed. Will definitely be back & would highly recommend.”

“Possibly the best roast dinner I’ve ever had! Went for a long walk with friends and booked in here for Sunday lunch. We had an outside table over looking the cricket field. Food was amazing. Service was great. Such a lovely pub!”

What a lovely Sunday treat! Took my family for a little get together and everyone loved the food! Roast dinners all round which were delicious followed by seasonal crumble and custard! What more could we ask for! Highly recommend and worth the drive! Thanks Samantha and Harry.
