We visited on a disappointingly chilly August day and were quite happy to see the log fire roaring. We received a warm and friendly welcome and were shown to our table in the bar area. Our waitress was lovely and was always available but not intrusive. There is a good choice of food on the menu and everything is clearly homemade and of excellent quality. Between us we had a burger, a chicken and bacon Caesar salad and a salt beef open sandwich - all delicious. This was followed by a rhubarb rice pudding and an orange posset - again delicious and well presented. For a warmer day, there are tables outside and there is also a nice restaurant area. We visit when we come to see our friend but wish we lived nearer as the value and quality is superb.
