We arrived early for our 2pm lunch booking, so sat at the bar with drinks. We got to watch the staff deal well with a very busy crowd, and amazingly patiently with some very rude customers. Really rude, loudly complaining at the delay while a...More

To start with the positives, the food was fine. Not awesome, not great, but ok (though slow). However, the service was atrocious. I've never left a bad review on something like this before but I joined Trip Advisor specifically in order to warn people about...More

Hello I've thought long and hard about your review and have come to the conclusion that either you have the wrong venue or that for some reason you are someone with a grudge. There simply isn't a single person who works here front of house...More

Generally the food was ok, but Manager and waiting staff urgently need training in customer interaction....Food took 45 minutes to arrive after I went to ask where it was - got a very aggressive response that it was only 40minutes wait - and the reason...More

Popped in after a stroll round the woods. Had a delicious pint of local beer and when enquiring on the soup we had to order it. Potato, pancetta and cheddar. It was amazing. The best soup I can remember eating. Beautiful little pub with great...More

Having had superb food here over the last few years we booked to come here for lunch on xmas day with friends. The starters were so-so. The turkey main course was unpleasant to say the least. The slices of turkey breast were thick and spongy...More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Oxford and we were both very impressed with the food! Devilled chicken liver and game terrine to start followed by venison burger and fish and chips left us very satisfied and taste buds happy.

Beside a cheering open fire we four enjoyed a three course à la carte lunch. Service was good even though it was busy. The highlights were the savoury soufflé starter and the Christmas pudding crème brûlée, and the beef cheek bourguignon. Plus they offer excellent...More

I absolutely love this pub. Last time we went, we had a beautiful meal in a cosy conservatory, softly lit, with jazz music playing in the background. The wood burning stove kept it warm, and the staff popped by just the right number of times...More
