To our eyes this 16th century public house was a diamond in the rough. We’ve given the walls a splash of colour, dressed the tables with linen and lit the candles to reveal a beautiful cosy restaurant in the countryside. 

If we were to describe our restaurant in a nutshell we would say;

We love our food with fine wine (with over 20 choices by the glass or bottle chosen with great devotion to duty); glowing tiffany lamps; cask ales and a back bar crammed with malts and gins. PLUS lots of pictures, cushions, genuine old beautiful furniture, fresh flowers, real wooden floors, spots to dine in the sunshine, nooks and crannies to eat in private and, of course, really nice people to look after you.

We don’t love TVs, gaming machines and anything generally average.


Our aim is to create a relaxed, friendly environment for people to meet for great food. Children and canine members of the family are welcome, although both need to be cared for with a watchful eye so that everyone can rub along happily.

We’re foodies at heart and we've provided a seasonal menu with a spine of freshly prepared, classic British dishes, complemented by a few more exotic influences here and there.
