We visited on a Saturday so naturally it was pretty full. Luckily we had booked. We had a mixture of the Saturday specials and the a la carte menu. The prawn tagliatelle was a tasteful filling starter. Both of the seafood dishes, cod and sea...More

Dinner was pretty amazing, my friend and I had tagliatelle as starter, cod as main course, and a lovely pudding with chocolate sauce on the side. I really enjoyed it, price is mid-range, but I would say it's cheap for me as I am used...More

Our friends had visited previously and took us to TOQH to give us a treat. We were well impressed. The service was a bit pedestrian at the start but soon warmed up and we were served in an efficient and friendly manner. The menu choice...More

Our Little Gem is a delightful country pub & restaurant that's full of charm, character and plenty of friendly faces. All are welcome in our bar area - even the beloved pooch! (Our doggy biscuit jar may be of interest to said pooch...) We have a stylish but cosy, two level dining room, a relaxed and informal bar area with a roaring log fire for the chilly months - and our lovely garden and terrace overlooking the village church is the perfect spot for those warmer days when the sun comes out to play. Everything on our menus is freshly made in our kitchen, including our ice creams and tasty chutneys. Our dishes change in line with the seasons and are made using the best local produce that we can get our hands on. In fact - If you think your veggies are top of the crops, then bring them along...we accept them as currency! (We're totally serious - Please ask) We're what you might call a 'proper pub', serving a selection of great real ales and lagers, alongside premium spirits and a good range of soft drinks and organic juices. Our wine list is carefully sourced (that bit was fun) and features boutique wineries - producing an exciting and individual list with many wines served by the glass. Planning a party? If you need that perfect spot to get some business done away from the office, or if you have something special to celebrate, please give us a call! We'll take all the hard work off your hands. Nearby, there are great walks in the beech woodlands of Common and Penn Woods, perfect for a visit to walk off one of our indulgent puds, or that Sunday roast. Whatever the occasion, if you're looking for a lovely spot to eat great food and catch up with friends and family, we think The OQH is just the place... We look forward to welcoming you soon! Tina (General Manager)
