The food here is as good as ever and the use of local produce has to be highly commended. Our party sampled a cross section of the menu and all choices got the thumbs up. Prices still remain on the high side and service not as sparkling as we have experienced in the past. I'd hate to see complacency creep... More

We just went in for a light lunch - to see what it's like having read the good reviews. The food was excellent - but having ordered a dish with no mustard, i was surprised to find my scotch egg sitting in a pool of mustard sauce. Both the waiter & the maitre'd just shrugged when told this. Not what... More

We haven't dined here for a while, but friends suggested it as they had been here a few weeks prior. The food was very nice, but not excellent which is what I would have expected for the prices charged. A little disappointing was the dessert which had shop bought mini meringues in it. Not much veg with the main course.

We always try to factor in a stop here on the way to Cornwall as we have had such excellent meals here and it never disappoints. It's excellent reputation is well deserved. The landlord is a real foodie and often comes round to check that his customers are satisfied. The menu choices are also excellent. The well used phrase, 'book... More

We always go here for special occasions in our family, visits from family from abroad, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Excellent food and quality is always best. They source locally and everything is fresh and well prepared. The Sticky Toffee pudding is a must for the men in our family and there is nothing negative I can say about it. A little... More

Cannot understand why this place has had some bad reviews. Went for lunch and had a beautiful meal. From the start in the bar the staff were welcoming, efficient and helpful and that carried on through to the restaurant staff. The food was innovative ,plentiful and delicious. I did not think it overly expensive either. Would have no hesitation recommending... More

Dined with family on Christmas Eve. Very friendly welcome, had clearly spread their bookings to keep service level high for a busy lunch. Nice seating area to choose from menu's of which are very good value for money. All our meals were very good and well presented. Vegetables served with main courses were plentiful and well cooked. Some way outside... More
