Traditional old English style pub with a good selection of well kept drinks. Good food menu, and the food is expertly cooked and presented. Also has a large beer garden. The staff are pleasant and very helpful.

I hate to share this, because I absolutely love this place and don't want to make it more popular. But here goes. Probably the best pub in all of England. It has the best cider board (menu) I have ever seen. Special keg is amazing. The atmosphere is great, the menus are amazing and one of the best ribeyes I have ever had. Please don't go there and spoil it.

What a great find this pub was, good menu selection and excellent quality pub grub at really good price. I haven't been inside a traditional english pub for years and it did not disappoint, friendly staff and really good atmosphere, and if you go on a theme night excellent value for money ( meal and drink inc) There was seven in our party , 4 adults and 3 teenage kids. The total bill for us all was just over £100, just cant go wrong
