We really enjoyed the food here. We had the 3 shared smokehouse platter and it fed 2 of us easily. Brisket was super tender, ribs fell off the bone and pork belly well cooked.

What a fantastic find! I took my 96 year old Father there and we both had the smoked slow roast Brisket. Bad news, our order took a while, good news, OMG! It was just to die for! So tender and tasty, with well cooked fresh veg. Generous portions as well! Great atmosphere, lovely staff, quaint traditional surroundings with a nice choice of real ale. I will certainly be back!

We stopped in for Sunday lunch and it did not disappoint! All 6 of us had the carvery and were all left absolutely stuffed (not too stuffed for desert) but the quality was fantastic, all staff were welcoming and friendly but the dogs playing in the bar were even better 🤣. We will definitely be back!
