Had a lovely family Sunday roast. Bread was seeded and not ...... nice. But everything else was excellent. Delicious soup, which could only have been improved by a nice piece of bread. The roast itself was brilliant. Pink beef, big yorkie and superb accompaniments.

This a a lovely pub which is warm and welcoming. It has the feel of a local pub and it's great that they haven't lost the bar area for people to just sit and have a drink and a natter. There are lovely tables to sit and eat in the bar area and then there are tables tucked away from...

Really interesting menu and a lovely location. Staff attentive but not intrusive. Traditional pub/restaurant with many traditional features. Menu has something for everyone and some interesting and different dishes. Terrine was fantastic and the triple Cooked chips were stunning. Perfectly cooked steaks and stunning deserts and cheese board. Interesting and reasonably priced wine list. Well worth a try...

A two night stay in a warm friendly environment. We stayed in the king room which had plenty of space and comfy bed. Lovely bathroom and toiletries. The rooms all catered for drinks and a lovely jar of shortbread which lasted a micro-second! The hosts were wonderful, as were the staff. Really accommodating. The best until last....the food! Oh my!...

Convenient for travellers to or from the west country on the A303 in need of quality food in a welcoming atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. 3 courses for two without drinks £70. Peaceful village with easy parking. Bar attracts local and the restaurant pulls in travellers and parties from a wider catchment so suspect the food is great across the menu...
