Return Visit and As Good As Ever - Don't Overlook This Place. Give It A Try.

The Generous Briton is a lovely country pub in a quiet location. We have visited this on several occasions and have always had an excellent meal. The service is consistently good and we just love the atmosphere.

Good food, well presented with plenty of choices and friendly staff. Although this place is a little off the beaten track it's well worth making the trip.

Was looking forward to eating here for Sunday lunch but left feeling disappointed. The menu sounded great but what arrived for first course was different then described. We ordered salmon and asparagus roulade what arrived was a load of cream cheese with a few chunks of asparagus wrapped in a piece of salmon, not what we were expecting and definitely... More

Decided to go off the main road & find somewhere to eat the next time we saw a church spire & so we ended up here. Wow what a welcome, thank you to the staff for that, next came the food. Not the cheapest place but I would rather pay more & get food of this quality. Fantastic & will... More

Four of us had Sunday lunch here for the first time. We were not disappointed. The food , all three courses, were excellent and the staff pleasant and obliging. There was a good choice on the menu and when it arrived the food was hot and tasty and thankfully traditional not nouveau cuisine. The meal was well worth the price... More

Chosen as the midpoint to meet a friend on a pre-Xmas get together, it was perhaps optimistic to arrive without a reservation and hope to eat. However we were greeted warmly and a table was cleared for us. The menu offered interesting dishes and local produce. We both opted for the roast pheasant, which was succulent and tasty when it...

The food has always been very good, freshly prepared and served hot. The staff are friendly and helpful and very efficient. Sunday lunch is excellent with a good choice of... More

Attended an office dinner here and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Although a village pub, like many others the only way to survive is to serve good food. This is no exception. Food ordered on the night came in a reasonable time and the quality was very good. I will certainly return
