This pub is also unusual as it is family run, the staff are relaxed and polite, and the pub has a real, friendly local feel, without falling silent when a stranger enters. The food, unlike the pub, is conventional. Fresh and home-cooked by 'Mum', dishes might include salmon salad, pepper & goats cheese quiche, a bowl of chilli-con-carne or a ploughman's lunch.
