We called in here by chance on a Sunday afternoon and were seated in the Bar area as the restaurant was busy. All of the staff were polite and friendly and the service was excellent; it was apparent that customer service is a priority here. We had different dishes (fish and chicken) and both were delicious. This isn't a budget... More

We went on Saturday night for a meal and it was fabulous, two of us had duck and the other had steak with crispy ox tounge. The starters were different and just as tasty. Too full for a sweet. A very enjoyable evening.

Good dining can be hard to find in these parts so I am not wanting to be too unkind, but my goodness how expensive this pub is! We are used to Southeast England prices but still found the cost of the meal rather high. Almost all the main courses (except the vegetarian option) are around £20. The starters and deserts... More

We had booked a table which we were shown to and offered drinks while we looked at the menu. The starters looked so tasty. I did not try one as I wanted to 'save myself for dessert', but others in our party did and they enjoyed them. I chose the rump steak and my husband had the Tomahawk Steak, our... More

My son brought me for a Mother's Day treat. There was a good selection of meals on offer as part of the Mothers Day Menu, any of which I would have happily chosen. The service was attentive but not overbearing and the food was excellent - good quality food made with good quality fresh ingredients. The portion size was very... More

Celebrated my sisters birthday here with a party of 10. The food was excellent and the staff all really good. We had a toddler and a young child who I think both ate off a kids menu and their meal was more than appropriately sized for them. I had steak pie which was lovely but next time I think I'll...

Decided to treat ourselves as we had a day off together which is highly unusual. We made the right decision - fabulous food & great service. Good sized portions set price menu and also a bar menu. My dessert was actually a work of art, cant believe I forgot to take a photograph. We'll have to go back again !!... More

Everything you would expect and more. The service was brilliant. Never had to ask for a thing. Very attentive without being "in your face". Congratulations to all the staff. Food wasn't bad either!!!! Would definitely go back without hesitation. Sam

A lovely place, with excellent food & service & I was especially pleased to find that any choice I wished to make, from the menu, could be adapted to accommodate my gluten-free dietary requirements. I was there for a friend's birthday celebration & they coped extremely well with our group of approximately 30 people, plus their other customers.

Ben and Lyndsey and their team gave me and my family an exquisite birthday lunch yesterday. Everything was perfect from the first moment to the last. And we are a pretty picky bunch! Dietary requirements were handled without a murmur. A little boy was entranced with his special meal (especially the pudding!) I wondered if they could maintain their usual... More
