Lovely local pub, welcoming for guests. Food was great and timely, service friendly. Would definitely go again. Low cielings around the bar area to be mindful of, space was slightly odd shaped with your backs to a lot of the venue, but really it was a lovely trip. Parking is also right outside.

Stayed in the carpark overnight in our campervan nice and peaceful, used the pub for our evening meal the present wife had lamb and dumplings I myself had liver bacon and onions the portions were just right and tasted really nice. The staff was friendly and cheerful and very polite, I would happily recommend this pub also it was a bank holiday so a busy place.
We had our wedding meal here. Rick, Claire and all the staff were amazing and the food is worth a 5 star. It's a wonderful family atmosphere 🙂

Went for a Sunday carvery and had the nut roast. Nut roast was probably the best nut roast we've had at a pub as it was more like stuffing rather than it being a dry, overly 'nutty' taste and crunchy like you get most places. Gravy was very tasty for vegetarian gravy. Roasties and Yorkshire pudding were good and all the vegetables sides were amazing. Pudding (we had sticky toffee & brownie) were lovely, what we could fit in anyway, perhaps the vanilla ice-cream was a little mediocre but did notice they do Farmer Tom's ice cream so will definitely ask for that next time. Lovely place and chilled setting, definitely will be returning to try out their vegetarian options on their main menu. Service was great. Reckon it'll be our go to place for a Sunday carvery. Thank you Crealock 🙂

What a marvelous find in September while on holiday, that we returned again in December. Sunday Carvery was excellent, the meat was cooked perfectly and all the vegetables were perfect. We returned again on Thursday evening for another exceptional evening meal and pudding. All the staff are so friendly, excellent service, and family run by an outstanding chef. Thank you.
