I have been coming to the Ostrich for years and it a good old fashioned Pub. Food is great and service wonderful.

Thank you Tony and Rosemary for another really lovely night spent at the Ostrich. This is our 8th annual visit. We are always made so welcome. Enjoy the ambience in the bar and the wonderful breakfast. If you like quirky and comfort and friendly hosts this is the place to come.

Superb sausages and I liked Pippin very much!
