To celebrate my mothers 91st birthday we drove her out to the picturesque village of Horsted Keynes on a sunny Saturday lunchtime. We enjoyed a superb Al Fresco lunch which certainly made her day and ours as her chaperones. My mother has Dementia and was shaky on her legs but the staff were all attentive and arranged for a special... More

I booked for Mother's Day lunch well it advance and was notified at the time that they were running the day in sittings, meaning that you could only have your table for 2 hours, a point which was reiterated when I was asked to confirm my booking the day before - fair enough. Upon arrival my family and I were... More

Visited with family. Lovely clean restaurant. Large log fire was very welcoming. The sandwiches were very fillin and came with salad and chips, more than we could eat. One of our party asked for soup, and at just after 12pm, they said they had none. There was only another 3 people in before us...disappointing.

Thank you for the review and the kind sentiments, we too were amazed at how quiet the restaurant was last night, considering the week before we had 65 for dinner. As we buy our produce fresh each day we cannot always guarantee availability (in this case chef wasn't happy with the quality of some of the scallops that arrived that... More

A mid-week meal with friends. Relaxed atmosphere. Service was not quick but as a result I ate three courses over three hours which was unheard of for me! All courses were absolutely lovely. The scallops were beautifully presented and so tasty. Will definitely revisit.
