    Didn’t start off too well as I am disabled and always request a certain table with a bench so I can push myself up. When we arrived at 7 the table had been taken and the rest of the restaurant was empty apart from one other table. The waitress said they were very busy etc but didn’t admit to not having read the request which was not good. The people at that table actually left as we were getting our starter but no offer was made to move us which was a bit disappointing.

    The meal itself was delicious and the service excellent. Sadly, it was ruined slightly by the fact that at the end I needed to stand up which I did by asking the man at the next table if I could hang on to the back of his chair. The restaurant was nowhere near full and the evening was tainted by the fact that not only was the booking form not read but then she told an untruth in leading us to believe the restaurant was heaving, which it wasn’t.

    Great meal however. My husband had scallops and a beautiful sirloin and I had fish pie and Eton Mess Sundae. Lovely!

    Our second visit this year to the pub but we have been a number of times over recent years. Sadly it was not nearly as good this time.

    Nice small cosy village pub, reasonable choice of food at various prices. Portion size very good (too many chips for me though) and food cooked as it should be.
    All staff very hospitable and friendly, some nice old pictures of the village I noticed and nice atmosphere to the place. Overall a pleasant evening.

    Large choice of traditional pub grub on the menu, nice atmosphere. Wednesday evening offer of 50% off all food makes it great value.
