Lovely Valentines evening meal. Very welcoming immediately on walking through the door - nicely lit, cosy warm and friendly reception at the bar. It’s also great to find a pub that serves both the Titanic Plum Porter and the Titanic Plum Gin. Loved the black pudding fritter starter & the fillet steak and the sticky chocolate & pomegranate torte was delicious. It was certainly well worth the 50 min drive from Derby to eat at this fantastic pub - we’ll be going back for sure.

Walking into a candlelit room with a fire burning in the corner and Christmas decorations everywhere made for a wonderful festive meal! The barman was extremely welcoming and the service was excellent. The chips and steak and ale pie were spot on. A mulled wine to finish was the perfect end to a cosy evening. Thank you.

The perfect pub lunch after a long walk, the service was wonderful & so welcoming. The food was delicious, real home cooked good food! And when they say they’re dog friendly, they really mean they’re dog friendly!
