Lovely meal and great service, decorated beautifully; much lighter than it used to be. Reasonably priced and I like the fact that they seem to have changed to table service.

Well run pub restaurant. Pleasantly surprised by overall value for money and quality if service. Ticks all the boxes for a model pub restaurant. Ambience , service, food quality and beers. The Chicken Kiev was delcicious. Even with the pressure of a full house service nothing was too much trouble. Will return.

Beautifully appointed Pub/Restaurant with spectacular views from the beer garden. Extensive menu choice, we were almost spoiled for choice. Opted for Fish & Chips, and Gammon. Both main ingredients were fine, but omg how can the chips be so poor? Undercooked to the point of still being quite hard, and very, very bland. Not quite bad enough to stop us... More

When they came we gave our order for starters and mains. They too took some time to arrive and my husband had to go and enquire where they were. The terrine wasn't terrine... More

We had a wonderful meal on what was an extremely busy day. The food was absolutely perfect, as was the service. Danielle, our waitress, was very attentive and looked after us really well. Special well done to Phoebe and Craig for running this pub superbly and providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
