Mike and Deb took over in 2015 and have already built a local reputation for good pub grub and generous portions. The Post inn has a varied menu catering for all tastes, for example, for lunch, a loaded jacket potato or a mouth watering filled to the brim crusty baguette. For the bigger appetite to rebuild your reserves, why not enjoy a juicy pan fried rib eye steak with stacks of chips and salad or seasonal veg.
The Sunday carvery has three choices of beautiful roasted meats plus a vegetarian option. Our carvery is always very popular and booking is highly recommended to avoid disappointment. With two local real ales on tap and other guest ales and local ciders, there is always a superb choice.
