Changing the item text size in navigation view

I am creating a navigation drawer in android and I have added the items in menu_main.xml but I am not able to change the size of the menu items.
Below is the code
menu_main.xml:

<menu xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<group android:checkableBehavior="single">
<item
android:id="@+id/motel"
android:title="Motel">
</item>
<item
android:id="@+id/packages"
android:title="Packages">
</item>
</group>
</menu>

Answer

Create a style and apply it to NavigationView using app:theme

<style name="NavigationViewStyle">
     <item name="android:textSize">20sp</item> <!-- menu item text size-->
     <item name="android:listPreferredItemHeightSmall">40dp</item><!-- menu item height-->
</style>

And then as said, apply this style to NavigationView using app:theme

<android.support.design.widget.NavigationView
       ...
       ...    
        app:theme="@style/NavigationViewStyle"
       ...
       ...


</android.support.design.widget.NavigationView>
