Many strong points

I wanted to add a review to add perspective to the many poor reviews here. This nice pub does not do fine cuisine, but it is also fairly reasonably priced, especially given the very pleasant setting. I thought service was fine, but I can see how on beautiful days they can be overwhelmed from all of... read more

Just back, booked a table, surly greeting but eventually we were seated at 7.30pm. This early in the evening they had already run out of Pimms ( it is a gator pub!) and cold bottled water. We were told if we wanted it cold we had to use ice but the ice took 20 minutes to come and was 3... More

Booked a table for a family dinner, service was by a moody looking non smiling waiter. Food was incredibly over priced £23 for a steak with dauphinois potatoes that were not only 'cold' but undercooked! Measly portions of mushrooms ( they don't cost that much!) if your going to try charging the earth for pub food - at least make... More

formerly brilliant place, today, £100 for three, poor food, tardy service, tiny portions, one waitress serving an entire large room. maybe just a bad day but never seen so few people there on such a lovely day;the word must be getting round. but not going there ever again to find out. felt like there was no management or they were...

This is a nice place, particularly on a sunny Tuesday lunchtime in June. Airy, lots of outside space and a pleasant location near the heath. So, it's a shame that the kitchen and bar just don't seem to be in control of the food or it's delivery. I'm sorry this is just a list but that's the problem, it was... More

To start, I might be being a little (but I stress a little) generous with 5 stars. But this place certainly isn't bad enough to justify it's current three star rating. I went here with five other friends and most of us thought the food was great. I recommend the burger and the fish n chips is decent too. Maybe... More
