Our food

It's good - and it’s reasonably priced with portions to satisfy the hungriest eater!

Phil, our Chef, is a great believer in home cooking and this is reflected in our menu. Our steaks are char-grilled (to make a succulently moist and well-flavoured dish) to absolute perfection and exactly to your taste.

In case you were wondering, the image above shows the dining area - you are more than welcome to eat in the main bar, family room, or weather permitting, any of the outside tables if you prefer. We are first and foremost a village pub!
