We visited for a birthday meal and were very satisfied. The food was excellent, well cooked and tasty and the atmosphere was bright, yet cosy. As far as staff go they were very friendly and ensured we were OK. I highly recommend a visit.

Went today with my elderly mother and my wife for a quick lunch - we hadn't booked but all the staff were very obliging, especially when we said we were in a hurry. The food arrived very quickly and was piping hot and delicious - we all had the plaice fillets and it came with plenty of vegetables. The desserts... More

Great Sunday lunch for 3 people - really good choice and excellent value. Portions are huge. The desserts are quality so make sure you leave room !! Good levels and service and a nice atmosphere.

A really good dinner in a pleasant atmosfere. The portions are large, but don't skip dessert, they are incredibly good. Just share a dessert. A great starter is the shared platter, we were with four people and 2 small ones were excellent.

We went on a Sunday it was extremely busy they did however seat us without booking after a wait and attended to the children well staff were amazing but the... More

Booked here for 5 of us after a great day at The Flying Legends at Duxford. Very prompt service & excellent food. Friendly staff who asked if we required water on the table. A very minor problem was that the restaurant did not serve until 6pm & the pub was closed when we arrived so we could not have a... More

From the minute you drive up to this impressive thatched pub/restaurant to the beautiful... More

We booked a table very last minute for 2 people, and nothing was too much trouble. As always greeted with a nice warm friendly welcome, offered a nice table and as per usual very tasty and well...
