Great service and excellent food

Sun was shining so decided to head out to the countryside and try something new. Having not visited before, I was slightly concerned about parking having only passed it from the front, however to the rear was a large car park. We decided to enjoy the sunshine and sit out in the front garden area. A... read more

This was our second visit to the Hermit for lunch. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal with very attentive staff. It's a really great place for Saturday lunch. I don't eat meat so there was a limited choice for me....but what was available sounded very tempting. I decided on portabello mushrooms with grilled halloumi cheese and pesto on toast. My... More

If you want attentive but not pushy service, really good seasonal food, reasonable prices and a good selection of beers and gin. This is the place to go. We were welcomed by the manager when we first arrived, we had a drink at the bar and chose from the extensive list of gins they had. The menu although not extensive... More

I am told that this was a pub that shut for sometime and then reopened as a gastro pub. It was far better than I had expected décor nice, staff amazing, food incredible and the wine lovely. Cannot wait to return for another meal.

Everything was perfection. Staff, food, price. I cannot fault this gastro pub in any way. This was the third time at this beautiful place and it gets better with every visit. I had the hot smoked salmon linguini, my partner had the scallops with hazelnut and cherry. They were probably the best starters we had ever eaten. We hope that... More

It shouldn't be but it is always surprising to find good places to eat outside of London. This is one such place and definitely worth a visit. The service and welcome is warm and helpful and is a place where I would be comfortable eating alone. The food is good , although my bubble and squeak was too processed and... More

Very enjoyable evening catching up with friends. Couldn't fault the food, wine or service. All first class. We were the last to leave but music still played in the background and we weren't rushed at all. A delightful atmosphere. Need to book.
