My husband had homemade pie of day day (Steak & Ale) accompanied by mashed potato and veg. Both meals... More

Met with folk from East Grinstead. Easy relaxed atmosphere, friendly service and good food. Parking can be a bit of a problem.

3 ladies of a certain age had a great lunch. Although it was really busy the food (a shared meat platter) was excellent and served promptly. The staff were very welcoming and friendly...even Lulu the loony labrador was given personal service of biscuits. We will definitely be going back . Thanks

The food (roast lamb, roast potatoes and veg) was beautiful, tasty and plentiful. The landlord was really accommodating and staff were friendly. We'll return - thanks for a lovely meal.

Eight family members went for Sunday lunch and the food (Sunday roast) and the service were both good. Plenty of other customers in the restaurant and a friendly atmosphere with helpful staff. Four of us went for lunch on the following Wednesday. Although we were the only customers in the restaurant when we arrived we had to wait an hour... More
