We have been here a few times and the meals were gorgeous each time .The steak was tender. the onion rings were succulent , i'd guess they were freshly made. We ate every morsel. The dinner it's self was very well... More

Just popped in for lunch and a drink greeted friendlyly. Nice and warm and the broccoli and cheddar soup was delicious and bread lovely and fresh. On main road and near to Braintree Freeport the crematorium so handy for wakes or meal en route.

We stayed in the family room no.1 which when shown to was freezing, having plugged in the electric radiator it did warn up.I unfortunately had to shower & wash my hair prior to... More

Had lunch with friends using a Groupon voucher. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was exceptional in quality and quantity. Everything is home made and very tasty. We will definitely be going back.

Nice pub in High Garrett, lovely décor, great ambience and friendly staff - BUT Starters were adequate, not incredible value for money but ok. We ordered the Home Made Steak Pie - and, for me, it was inedible because of the high salt content in the gravy, and I thought the 'pie' contents were a little on the mean side... More

Very enjoyable family meal, all three courses well prepared, with adequate portions and decent quality ingredients. Wide choice of drinks.The interior has been modernised since our last visit and was bright and cheery. The staff were very helpful and attentive. It's a straightforward menu and simple food at a good price.

Saturday lunch here was quite disappointing. Limited menu and small portions and not cheap either. Veggie tart was nearly all pastry and had very little filling, although it was served with a pleasant salad. For the fish and chips the fish batter was not at all crispy but the chips were okay. Reasonable selection of ales and the wine was... More
