Six of us were staying nearby and we are all London foodies !! The Sunday lunch was simply superb and utterly faultless. £26 for two courses or £30 for three has to be incredible value for money considering the quality of each dish presented We'll definitely be back....

We went today for our Anniversary, received a very warm welcome and had a drink in the bar prior to our lunch. Food was excellent, plenty to eat and very good value. We were not rushed, service was attentive but never imposing and the waiting staff were friendly. Already decided to go again for our birthdays next year! As parents... More

We went after a walk with our dogs - no problem.They were greeted as members of the family. A real country pub feel with a smartish dining room. Choice of 7 course tasting menu or a la carte. Great choices, we could have just stayed with the snacks. Rather than a wine flight we chose the local Butcombe beer. 2... More

Excellent Meal once again. I had Smoked Ham Hock, Leek Potatoes and egg for my starter which was superb. My main course was Blagdon Pork Neck, Fillet and Glazed Cheek, Black Pudding, Apple and Kale. This was beautiful. Service was as always very good and the wine ,a Cote du Rhone was inexpensive. No room for Desserts this time. We... More
