Was just a chance visit, felt very welcomed as strangers, so nice and appreciate that. Beer was very nice and welcomed. Landlord and landlady couldn't have been nicer, thank you both, and thanks to your local customers. 😀

Recommended by other guests that have signed the visitor's book in the holiday let we're staying in. Nice small tavern with friendly landlord and reasonably priced drinks – about an even £2 for a half pint. Has a little garden out back that smells of honeysuckle in the summer.
