Great venue, good service, lovely food (I've had the scallops twice and they've been perfect both times), nice atmosphere, lots of attention to detail. Super beer garden too if the weather is ever nice enough to use it!

We visited with friends at lunchtime and had a great time. Everyone was extremly helpful, the service was great. The food was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. The passion fruit rice pudding with beetroot to die for. Very good value for money. We will be back.

Visited for lunch and the Hermit was warm and welcoming. As others have said the menu is somewhat limited and therefore haven't given a 5 start but the food was lovely. Water to the table is a nice touch and the service was attentive without being over the top. The dinner menu looked nice but a bit too complex for... More

Quaint, beautiful gardens, nice conservatory and dining room. Bar staff have to go into the cellar to get beer, they disappear behind the bar,& down the steps to pull it! I've been here for work lunches and dinners , private dinner and breakfast. Staff are friendly and the menu is good, nice food.

Although I haven't been here for many months, when I did go I found the food to be fine and good value for money (although I don't think there needed to be that many varieties of mashed potato on one menu!)

Loved our valentine supper- set menu choice was excellent and lots of food. The venue has different rooms to eat in, we ate in a smaller room with about 7 tables all prettily decorated with flowers and candles .

Took some friends there for Sunday lunch, as id heard good things about it. Fortunately we were not disappointed. Delicious food, I had the pulled pork, with rosemary and pear sauce and all the usual sunday lunch trimmings. Everything was well cooked & very tasty. My husband had the local beef, which he enjoyed very much & our friends shared... More

Such a lovely pub / restaurant, serves pub food with a twist, the setting is great, feels really cosy in her & just lovely. The staff are very nice & welcoming. They have a beautiful garden & also a space upstairs for gatherings. It's nice to come here for something nicer than just pub food as it is much better,... More
