We called in unannouced as we was driving by after visiting relatives. We were offered the choice of bar or restaurant & chose to sit in the bar which was a lovely cosy atmosphere. We managed to sit in the window bay where the sun beamed through, just lovely! We went for the sirloin of beef sunday lunch, it was... More

We we're recommended to this place after visiting RAF nearby and weren't disappointed. The service was quick, the food tasty and the wine at the right temperature.

A very welcoming pub, with an attractive restaurant. Restaurant staff very pleasant. We were one of only two tables occupied for lunch that day. The main courses were very good, but two of us chose the terrine (which was also good) as a starter, but disappointed to find that the toast that came with it was stale and probably left... More

Dinner for 6 on Friday evening. We were pretty impressed by the variety and imagination of the menu, but if being critical, I would say that the ambition of the menu was not managed by the skill of the kitchen. Dinner wasn't bad......far from it, but every course just seemed to miss the bullseye by a fraction. For example, the... More

We stopped off for lunch during a walk. Pleasant pub serving wide range of food. We can recommend the pumpkin and bacon soup and ham sandwiches. Perhaps a little pricey but good quality, even though smallish portions. Pleasant and polite staff made the visit really enjoyable.

Visited here on a Saturday evening and the restaurant and bar were full. Service was friendly and although not quick, was not terribly slow either. Surroundings were very good with a lovely garden room. The food was the star and everything was of a high standard with a varied and interesting menu. Enjoyed the visit and will definitely dine there... More

I have eaten here on many occasions and this pub just makes Sunday lunches a treat. Varied menu and also a friendly atmosphere, it really is worthwhile. However, on the last 3 visits they have stated that I haven't made a booking, despite calling up. This really is the only misdemeanour and despite the usual 'let me see if we... More

I've been here a few times - this time was for lunch with a friend. Luckily we weren't in a hurry as the service was painfully slow! The ambiance and food are great - but they really need to improve the service. The waiter kept apologising - but every item took an age to arrive. It would have been understandable... More
