Very impressed with surroundings and menu choice is interesting. We went for special occasion and the four of us had different meals that were excellent. Would recommend for special nights as meal prices are high but you do feel they are worth it and the setting open fire, etc., adds to the occasion.

We came today for lunch all 16 of us. We have heard such good things about this place, really nice exterior and a lovely cosy atmosphere.

Excellent food, lovely polite waitresses. Welcoming atmosphere. One member of staff let the team down (older barman). I asked for a particular cider and was told rather abruptly no. (I only asked because an ice buket was advertising it) Then went on to say the cider was supposed to be exclusive to pubs only, but large stores i.e tescos were... More

The sandwiches here are amazing! The pub itself has a lovely atmosphere and surroundings. It does get busy, which is a good sign however once the lunch time rush was over it was very relaxing watching the open fire having a coffee. The hot drinks come with amaretti biscuits which are delicious. It is a bit pricey but for us... More

Food is very nice but on the pricey side. Mum had Lamb was lovely nicely cooked, however my daughter had the same and the lamb was raw so couldn't eat it all - could have sent it back I suppose but was already getting late by the time the food came. I had steak which was small, came with 3... More

Been here several times for a Saturday night out and always had great food, last night was no exception. This is a very welcoming village Inn with excellent food, great selection of wines, craft beers and a strong following. The menu is imaginative and covers all bases, you should have no difficulty finding a dish that suits your taste. Fish... More

This is more than the Village pub with smart decor and cosy eating and drinking areas. The menu is creative and varied , I had the mixed seafood Thermidor and it was beautifully cooked. As a party of 9 we all enjoyed our meals.

Visited here with a family group. Food was excellent and would have given it 5 stars but some the staff were a bit grumpy. A smile and a welcome cost nothing!
