Visited this lovely friendly pub on New Years Eve at lunchtime where we enjoyed really tasty well cooked and presented meals by attentive staff. Landlady couldn't have been more welcoming. A smile and a chat in attractive surroundings. What else could one ask for? Popped back on New years day just for a drink and received the same welcome. Returning... More

Right from the start, the welcome and friendly attentive staff I knew I was in for a treat and the fish was just right, correct amount of batter and cooked perfectly. Will return with my wife to try the other tempting offers on the menu.

The first time we visited this pub it was ok. The second time it wasn't great, but just about ok and cheap so for the money ok. However this time was dreadful regardless of price. I had a quorn chilli which was ok. I keep saying OK because that's about as good a word as you can use to describe... More

Always good food, good real ale and friendly. Lovely country pub and in a lovely village. Make sure you don't miss out on tables and book though, lots of space but very popular.

My girlfirend and I were at my families for a few days after Christmas as we are both vegan there isn't great choice. Until you get to the Gardeners then you are spoilt rotten. What a choice! ! The vegan menu had at least four starters,mains and desserts. All drinks in the wine menu also stated if they were vegan... More

Only half the meal arrived again. Staff unsure of menu. Poor quality food , prepared averagely and kids ice cream questioned until they read menu again. Will stay clear until we hear of improvement. Not impressed with parting £50 for dinner and feel robbed.

I can assure you that our food is freshly produced using local ingredients. We are... More

Popped in today for lunch with husband and daughter plus our two dogs. We and our dogs were made very welcome. We had a delicious lunch, traditional pub classics and deserts followed by coffee. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very festive. Will definitely go back again.
