The lamb tajine was fanastic

Cosy, friendly bar with locals and visitors. Both our meals were excellent and they had a selection of 3 or 4 real ales.

I'm lucky enough to live only a few miles from here and on my first visit was pleased by the beer selection and the fine bar menu. Old fashioned bar is a plus feature. Well worth searching the lanes to find it.

We spent our 2 night break in the hotel, the food was varied and did not break the bank, serving times were excellent, we managed to get Barefoot, white zinfandel, not available in a lot of places. Staff were good and very friendly. A part time local kept us chatting at the bar which was nice also, thanks John.

Went here on a Thursday night with friends after reading about it in the AA pub guide. I was extremely impressed by the quality of food on offer. The menu seems to cover all tastes with a lot of vegetarian choices, Italian, Moroccan, Cuban and Caribbean (quite a wide range). The bar scene is good with a number of local... More

We had a very nice meal and later were delighted to speak with the Proprietor/ chef. It is not often that you meet Costa Rican proprietor in the depths of rural England!
