Visited for Sunday Lunch whilst on a boozy, food fueled weekend with friends locally, traditional country type pub, with some good real ale and wine, quite a few gins on offer I recall too. Sunday Lunch was spot on, cooked like you would at home, plenty of it too, washed down with a fair few local ales. Service was great! Place nice and clean, recently done up by the looks of the photos on here to what it looks like now. Will definitely return!
