My wife suggested I cycle here to try it out - bless her. Lunchtime - a few eaters in the restaurant area. I chatted with a couple of locals and warmed myself by the log fire in the large bar area. Friendly locals and bar staff - who kindly charged my phone up.

We came for lunch for my dad's birthday. The food was excellent and the staff all friendly. I'm sure I've been here before, maybe 20 years ago. I have some vauge recollection of wandering out of a party down a dimly lit road so I coild get a pint and I'm sure it was here I came.

Sunday lunchtime. Good cycle ride here from Ashford. Not been in more than a decade, but I still liked the place. Landlady in particular was very welcoming and informative. I will be back if I ever make it up that hill again.
