We visited here with some friends. All of our food was very tasty and well cooked. You pay a little more, but you get back more in terms of quality and flavour. The service was very good too. My only complaint is that all of our food was served on slates rather than plates. I really hate this; it's not... More

We would recommend this restaurant. The set menu on Sunday lunchtime was very good - the roast beef was perfectly cooked and the roast pots excellent. Staff were friendly and attentive.

We broke a journey and after trip advising found this great pub/restaurant. The menu is varied and impressive and our food was ideal with the few people around us clearly also really enjoying their fare. There was no ale on tap but the bottled local beer was good. Very recommendable.

The log fire was really welcome and made us instantly feel cosy and welcomed. The pumpkin, parsnip and cardamon soup was sublime! Yum.

The steak was wonderful but monk fish a little lacking in flavor. Service was terrible. Not once were we asked how our food was or if we needed anything. For a trip advisor #1 rating we expected more.
