Our most recent entry in the MICHELIN Guide 2017: “rustic, open-plan dining pub opposite the village church, in a remote, picturesque village. Menus are chalked on blackboards above the open fire and offer an eclectic mix of generously portioned pub and restaurant-style classics”

The Harden’s 2016 guide: A “friendly” country pub combining “fantastically creative dishes” (especially meat-based ones), “wonderful beers and wines” and a “great atmosphere”… they’ve “got it just right!”
