“Fine, traditional pub - with good food.”
Walkers and well-behaved dogs and children are all welcome. An excellent beer garden round the back. And a great open fire for when the weather is character-building. Interesting range of local beers, and substantial, locally-sourced meals at sensible prices. Relaxed, friendly staff. About 50/50 locals and visitors.
