This establishment had been recommended to us some time ago so we chose it as a venue to meet up with friends. On the way there we heard that one other person would be joining us but were unable to let them know in advance as they didn't answer the telephone. Also my husband had told them in advance that...

The Pony & Trap is a brilliant pub. The food and service are of the high standard that one would expect from a place with a Michelin star. Despite this accolade, it still feels like a pub, it serves excellent beer and the prices are sensible. My wife loved her beef and venison burger, priced at a very reasonable £12.50.... More

I went with my partner for the Sam Moody & Josh Eggleton Tasting Menu last night. 8 courses of amazing food. I can't pick a favourite out of them, they were all so incredible. My partner had the wine flight and thoroughly enjoyed each glass, and Holly was very good at explaining the wines and why they had been chosen... More

A nice window seat for the four of us on a beautiful day with excellent views.Incorrect bottle of wine served-but minor error and apologies accepted.Rib-eye steaks fantastic but a side dish of some greens would have improved presentation.It looked a little lonely but did find two mushrooms under the meat.The two coeliacs were well catered for by the chef.Can be...

...if you carry a Michelin Star - with that comes much responsibility. Like an accomplished dinner service. Especially Friday or Saturday night. Some of us look forward to such occasions. And we had booked way in advance for a 9pm sitting - in this much vaunted "gastro" pub 10 miles outside of Bristol. Indeed, recommended by another "starred" venue Casa... More

Fantastic Menu - with themed events on a regular basis - also loads of grub, again locally sourced.... More

This is a traditional country pub in a picturesque setting, and I’ve been in here many a time when out for a cycle around the lakes and stopped for a pint in the lovely beer garden. These days though, it’s more about the food with a Michelin star, renowned local check Josh Eggleton at the helm and recently it was... More

Despite Google Maps having this 400 yards from where it actually is its worth finding. Great food in a relaxed 'pub' Hake was some of the best and partners venison dish was stunning

Visited Pony & Trap on my return from a holiday in the States with Tracey Chidzey (whose mother used to own the Pony & Trap) and Sandra Hellier. One of the best meals I have ever had-Mussels to start-Whole Plaice (to die for) absolutely mouth watering. A really wonderful few hours-I will return, Thank you Keith Irwin
