Lovely local in a rural setting

We loved our short stay here. The staff were all so friendly. The food was delicious. Steak and ale pie with lovely chips. Good selection of ales for a fairly small pub. Accommodation included nice extras such as cookies and bottled water which were a nice touch. Friendly locals too, I would recommend the quiz on a Sunday evening! You'll be made to feel welcome!

Lovely place

Very friendly landlady and staff.We had our dog with us and there was easy access to some wonderful walks,all close to the Inn. Only 3 rooms and ours suited us best with a large bathroom and bath,very comfortable beds. Decor a little tired in the bathroom and hall carpet could be replaced but that doesnt worry us . Lovely freshly cooked breakfasts
