Within minutes from the M6 is this wonderful old village pub. We arrived 12 minutes after lunchtime opening and secured one of the last available tables. I’d recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. Get food, incredibly friendly staff, dog friendly and lovely cozy ambience. At the back of the church (opposite the pub) it opens up to open fields where our springer spaniel could let off steam before getting back on the road. Highly recommend. Slow unhurried service - we weren’t in any rush, just lovely to soak up the ambience and listen to the local banter.
