Fabulous food

Visited as a group of 7 and booked in advance as recommend, and glad we did as it was full, but not over busy. Had Prawn cocktail to start which was a little disappointing, more like shrimp than prawn but still very nice. Main was Goats cheese tart, which was amazing, the best I have ever had... read more

Superb Sunday lunch again. Asked to purchase a voucher for a friend, landlord quickly produced a letter in a nice envelope with no fuss - excellent service. Good range of beer. Trouble with a recommendation like this is it could be a problem for me to get a table in future??? Mmmm

What a find! We had a superb meal, good beer and wine. Our main meals were venison medallions and herb crusted chicken, and desserts were panettone bread and butter pudding and sticky toffee pudding. Everything was well presented and thoroughly delicious. The staff could not be more helpful and professional. Probably not for dining on a budget but you get... More

This pub makes an excellent start and finish point for a walk up the Sugarloaf followed by lunch or dinner. A really warm and welcoming country pub with well kept real ales and a delicious selection of light bites and full meals depending on the level of appetite you have worked up.

Had a fabulous family get together for a birthday celebration at this lovely pub. What a find! Excellent food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. We will certainly be back. The pie and lemon posset were fabulous.

Halfway house for a family lunchtime get together. Grandparents live in West Wales with daughter and family living in Worcester. Friendly, professional staff. Every visit we've met has had a choice of Three Dishes of the Day, food so fresh and full of flavour.

The food was absolutely delicious. The main courses are stunning, but save room for a homemade dessert! The lemon posset was to die for. Great service and atmosphere. I'd posset-ively recommend it ;)

Went for a meal at this popular pub. Booking is recommended but sometimes you can be lucky though why take the chance . We booked in advance and when we arrived it was very busy. The food this time was the best we have ever sampled and we have eaten here many times. Starters were scallops with cauliflower purée and... More

A local favourite and on your first visit you'll tell why. Superbly run pub/restaurant with a nice menu with some reliable favourites. And very good beer to boot!
