We recently had lunch at the bushel , and were so impressed at the quality of the food. It is under new management, and both the menu plans and the wine selction look extremely promising. Would like to wish the new team every success.

I had a pork terrine and my other half had smoked salmon, both potion sizes we generous, well presented and very tasty. For mains we had rib eye... More

We ate here on a Sunday, to celebrate my parents' 40th Wedding Anniversary. What a disappointment! Having eaten here before on several occasions recently, I was amazed that the only item on the menu was a roast dinner, no alternatives. We should have guessed there was a problem when entering the usually full car park - on this occasion there... More

Yum yum yum!!! 6 very happy people were fed and full. 3 had pork, 2 beef and 1 turkey, all meat was cooked perfectly and there was plenty of it, 3 massive roast potatoes and aunt Bessie eat your heart out, it certainly wasn't one of your York shires on the plate. It was 3 times the size and tastier.... More

Absolutely amazing, all the staff are exceptional, polite, efficient, helpful, and so switched on, our little baby carter loved all the special attention, especially the specially prepared one off baby food made by the brilliantly talented chef. I have been to so many restaurants around the world and this place in this tiny village of Ashwell beats all of them... More

The food at this delightful pub has waxed and waned over the years with various chefs plying their trade. At the present time the chef is very good, using seasonal produce without recourse to the multi-menu hotch potch that is the giveaway of sub standard food. The chef here cooks what's in season offering a well thought out choice of... More

We held a significant birthday celebration in this lovely pub. The menu showed an interesting selection of dishes which were well cooked and well presented. The choice of beer was also very good and the beer had obviously been well kept. Add to this the delightful setting with St. Mary's enormous church spire opposite, floodlit by night, plus the friendly,... More

We inadvertently visited Ashwell on Mothers Day - no intention to coincide. Was visiting Ashwell as my ancestors lived here, in fact around the corner from this pub, hence the reason to eat here. It was packed, but the manager was very accommodating and was able to get us a table near the bar - better than nothing I thought.... More
