We visited this place on a gloriously sunny June day and had a great time in the restaurant and then the rear garden with a view to die for. Food was top notch and the staff were very pleasant. Was hoping to call in again this summer but will now visit again in the autumn.

We ate at the Pony and Trap on a Tuesday lunch time and it was busy. We were met with a warm welcome and shown to our table in the bar area. All the tables were occupied but there was plenty of space. We had a starter of mussels and pork terrine, both of which were delicious, followed by fillet... More

A delicious Sunday roast. We had the roast beef (£15.50) and roast pork (£15). Both come with an extremely flavourful gravy, roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese and a wide range of seasonal vegetables. The roast beef also had a giant yorkshire pudding. The potion was very large and I would say excellent value for money as well as being very tasty.... More

As a regular customer I was delighted with the profile holly and Josh enjoyed from the GBM And although bookings suddenly became very hard to come by, albeit with too little humility, I assumed that things had taken a big step up. The food has always shown a technical flash or two, with a nod to modern trends, whilst still... More

Once a year, we treat ourselves to a meal without the consideration of cost, hoping to taste the best money can buy. The taster menu at the Pony and Trap wasn't cheap, but definitely value for money. The whole experience lasted nearly 3 hours, and the service was impeccable - attentive and slick yet friendly and relaxed. The courses were... More

We had heard very good reviews for this Resturant and booked a birthday meal in a Saturday evening. The location was beautiful and our table had a fantastic view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was lovely and a reasonable price. We would definitely return - great country meal!

My partner and I came here for a birthday lunch. The staff are all so nice, nothing was too much trouble. 3 courses later, we were very full and very happy. I wouldn't say it was perfect: my very good starter of ham hock terrine came with pickled mushrooms, which were not to my taste (I would have preferred a... More

We booked as a couple but under the wedding party booking we had celebrated the previous day. We had to book separately as the bride had enough to worry about, planning her wedding. I was abroad, so e.mailed to book, this was not an option, I had to call. Fair enough, but I explained that I was abroad, no reply.... More

Enjoyed a sunny Sunday lunch eating outside. Good service, eventually after quite a long wait. We had roasts for our main course , pork and beef - OK but the pork came with a lot of fat and only average flavour. General view was that beef was much better value. Good selection of well cooked vegetables but small quantities. Desserts... More

Well, what a lovely place to be! The surrounding countryside is picture perfect, and we were lucky enough to visit on a day when the weather was kind, the sky blue and the sun shining. The staff were overrun with customers but still friendly and courteous. The wines we chose were both reasonable and very good. The food was perfectly... More
