The food we all had was very very good but I thought that the service was rather slow.The decor and ambiance of the restaurant could be better but as I said before the food was excellent which really made up for everything else.
One of my pet hates is having the service charge added to the bill when I believe that it should be left to your discretion.We will visit again as there was plenty of parking for the group and again the food was excellent.

Booked a table in the bar at 6.00 and were advised we would need to vacate by 8.00, which seemed perfectly reasonable and meant we didn't have to rush. Good selection on the menu and had additional list of daily specials. All dishes were presented beautifully and tasted great. Attentive service and cosy atmosphere. Will be visiting again.

Another Sunday lunch ruined by rowdy/noisy children not being controlled by their ignorant parents !
When are pubs like this ( that serves average food at exorbitant prices ! ) going to realise they need to place families with young children away from others who want a relaxed meal.
Food was nothing to write about and service very average.

Lovely, lovely food in a wonderful country setting. Please bring back the cocoa marinated venison with figs - it was one of the best meals out I've ever had! :)
