A pleasant country pub in a pretty village. We had booked (advisable)We found our table was too cramped to allow waiting staff to pass easily. A very good choice of starters and mains which were of a very high standard. Disappointed at the rather limited choice of puddings. I had lemon merengue which was in an unusual format. I didn't...

As locals we've been a number of times for lunch and dinner. The food is reliably well made and enjoyable although they try too hard to be gastro-pub. Staff can be friendly but on other occasions downright miserable. The pub itself must go back well over 100 years but the modern refit means it has lost its charm. Though clean... More

A return visit this week to the Generous Briton (and several more visits with friends in the period since the last review; perhaps half a dozen) and I am pleased to report that things there are as excellent as ever. A warm welcome from the staff on arrival, the wonderful menu + specials we were spoilt for choice and as... More

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
