Although we have been before,it was our first midweek lunch here. We arrived on a very stormy day! The staff were trying to place everyone at tables away from a draught that was blowing in,so we were warm and cosy! We ate from the 2 courses for £14.00 which I felt was excellent value with good portions,so much so that... More

We were a party of 10, 7 adults and 3 children. Booking was very efficient and we have been here a number of times before. Let me start by saying that the food is great. A very hearty Sunday lunch, with plenty of meat, fresh vegetables and the most amazing roast parsnips! The restaurant is always really warm and welcoming... More

We were a reasonably large party of twelve and felt well accommodated by the staff who provided great service. We ate a fairly typical Sunday roast style lunch but there were fish and vegetarian options. The food was well cooked and plentiful. The fact that the pub had every table full is testimony to the quality and value this place... More

Had a meal here tonight with my partner. It was the best meal we've ever had. Cannot recommend this place enough. The lamb duo was perfect!

Visited with friends, who along with myself are getting along a bit, at lunch time having booked a table, which was fortuitous as it very quickly filled. Always a good sign. I had pate with a main of 'Pie of the Day', which happened to be Chicken and Ham. I can sum it all up really, every thing that was... More

Another great meal. We had the taster menu on a Tuesday. It was excellent and more than enough for two. Entertainment was subtle and very good. If you go on a Tuesday I would recommend the taster menu, saying that I would recommend most things on the menu. Once again another great visit.

A great pub/restaurant just outside Newbold Verdon this is worth a visit for lunch or dinner. Sunday lunch was served on a 2 or 3 course set price basis and the quality and quantity was excellent. Beef and pork beautifully cooked and wonderfully presented fresh vegetables and roasted potatoes and parsnips. We enjoyed this post Christmas lunch with family and... More
