Michelin say: "It might have been modernised but this welcoming local retains plenty of rustic character. Choose from pub staples or more adventurous dishes, with steaks hung in a unique salt-ageing chamber and specials from the wood-fired oven in summer. The friendly team always welcome you with a smile."
