We booked our table for a Saturday night which we thought might be busy, the pub its self was lovely and warm with the log burner gently crackling in the background. We ordered drinks and took our seat, after being politely left to peruse the menu at our leisure we placed our orders, our starters prawn cocktail, Chicken liver Pate,... More

Have been here several times when visiting my sister who lives nearby, the restaurant obviously has a talented chef as the standard of cooking is way above normal pub restaurants. 3 of us had the home made steak and ale pie, great pastry, well filled with big pieces of quality tender tasty beef and a stunning gravy. fresh veg finished...

We popped in one evening for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. There was a great selection of foods both within the menu and also a super specials board! All our dinners were freshly cooked and delicious. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff and of course the toasty fire too!

Friendly welcome. Popular place for dinner - make a reservation on the weekends. Good beers. Homemade choices. Steak and Ale pie is fabulous.

A disappointing visit to the restaurant. The table was 'sticky' and cleaning products left on the bar behind our seats. Not too sure about Gluten Free food but food reasonable .

Celebrated my Mother-in-Laws 70th Birthday party here in September. The staff had organised the back room for us and the food orders had been called in in advance so that the food could be order and ready in preparation. It was a fairly large party of us but the staff quickly brought out the starters and main without any wait... More

We stopped here on our way out to Hornsbury Mill for a wedding reception to have dinner. Between the 3 of us we had New York Chicken, Chicken Stilton and a Ham Omelette which although we waited a while for, it was so worth it. We all loved it and said it was the best meal we had had in... More

Nice pub with ok/good food. Went in on the fly. Had not booked, but we were fitted in. There are Trivial persuit question cards on the table and these helped while away the time until our food arrived. My wives seafood platter was extraordinarily boring, but my Lamb Chops in Redcurrant sauce was stunningly good. My 4 y.o. son was... More

Went earlier this week with my mum and we were pleasantly surprised. Although very quiet (it was Monday lunchtime), the staff were very friendly and we didn't wait too long for a wonderful meal which I couldn't finish as it was such a large portion. Asked if they could bag it up for me, they brought me a proper container... More
