As Good as always

Visited for an evening meal on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy as normal, but room for the two of us to sit in a quiet spot next to the open fire. Food was very tasty but the portion size for the hot smoked salmon was a little less than we thought. Apart from this, the food was all... read more

Me and my husband had dinner here the other night. Deco is very nice inside and they have an open fire which we was lucky to sit by as it was quiet. Good variety on menu. We both went for the steak burger with chips which was delicious! I'm looking forward to going back to try the Kentish sausage and... More

Food and service were quite outstanding. Had a delightful 'mezze' to share to start with followed by pheasant with pink fir apple potatoes, and celeriac and leeks. Wine excellent, all very clean and waitresses immune to flirting. I am having trouble recommending any improvements but on a quiet Friday lunchtime the parking was awful- about 200yds down the road. It... More

A group of us ate here for the first time having driven past many times previously and thought "that's a nice looking pub, we should try it". Inside is indeed nice but there was just no atmosphere, there were very few other diners, no background music and it felt more like a library than a pub/restaurant. The service was excellent,...

Visited to celebrate a family birthday. Very varied menu, updated daily apparently. As a starter, the Sweet Potato soup was an absolute winner. Of the 5 in our party, 3 tried it and were all bowled over. Main course the Haddock & Chips with mushy people. A more than generous portion. Very good quality fish and home made tartare sauce....

Came in for a spontaneous bite to eat on a weekday night, having not been in for a while. We sat in the bar area and ordered mains followed by a pud. Food was good as per usual and service was also top notch. Thanks to Tina and her team for looking after us so well as usual!

Visited after a walk in the area for a late lunch on Sunday. Menu was ambitious pub food, which was well cooked and presented. The pub itself has a certain charm, which feels like a cross between a large light and airy front parlour and a traditional country pub. Parking may be challenging, however.
