Lovely local

Fantastic place, weather for Sunday lunch, or fish & chips on a Friday night. This place is spotlessly clean, staff are friendly & warm, and your guaranteed good food.

Called in for an evening meal in a journey down the A303. It was an excellent choice - the food was nice, the staff very friendly and helpful, good choice of ales and conveniently located off the main road.

Stopped in for lunch. Ended up having a 3 course meal. I was full after the the main, but I was so enticed by the puddings I had to try one. Was not let down. Service was great to top it all off.

We visited this lovely pub on the way to Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum and weren't disappointed. The menu was inviting and we chose two salads for the ladies and the steak and ale pie for my husband. All of the meals were a good size and were made with good quality ingredients. My husband even commented how tender the... More

Two of us dropped in by chance on the way through the village. A fairly simple menu from which we chose different main courses. We were both pleasantly surprised by a tasty dish, nicely presented by a friendly landlady. Well worth a visit.

We went there to eat the sweets in the evening. We ended up trying the starters (smoked salmon: just delicious; and piglet: superb) too. then we had our nice pudding. We had creme brule', brandy snaps and cheesecake. Cannot be beaten! The staff was very welcoming and nice. Definitely worth all your money! Well done to your chef and nice... More
