A lovely, quaint little pub just off the M11, junction 7. A perfect stop for lunch as opposed to various fast food outlets and service stations. The landlord and landlady were extremely welcoming and offered a good choice of food; specials board had many fish options including baked oysters, soft shell crab, scallops, king prawns etc. Other options were local...

Fantastic food and excellent staff. The ale choice on this occasion was disappointing and limited (10/04) but that's my opinion and personal preference. This place never let's us down with food or service.

Really enjoyed our food. Our booking got lost so the girls gave us a table outside which in the end was great as the weather was lovely. The roasts here are great and we always enjoy them (especially the trio of meats on Sundays!!), the staff are lovely and couldn't do more for you. No its not a 'gastro' pub,... More

Rather than "beware of service charge" perhaps you should have written "be aware of service charge?" It is true that we include a service charge, however as clearly stated on all of our menus & by our members of staff the charge is discretionary - therefore it is simply a suggestion not a mandatory order... Let's not overlook however the... More

Been here a few times, staff friendly but food very disappointing. We will probably give it a miss next time.

Thank you Debbie for your review, I would however like to address it as I found it rather concerning...

Took the family for a Sunday lunch, lovely home cooked food served in an old, rustic pub. Lovely staff, good service and traditional, wholesome menu.

I visited this pub recently with my daughter and two elderly people. This was our first visit and we were made to feel very welcome and consideration and time was given to the older members of our party. We all chose different dishes and the food was excellent. I am sure we will visit again. Thank you to the staff... More

Four of us went to this tiny pub for dinner. Special Christmas Eve menu, so choice was limited. I had confit duck with chorizo to start - tender and delicious. Then a roast turkey dinner - others in our party had roast beef and Yorkshire pud, so I asked for a Yorkshire as well, but was told they only made... More

Eight of us had Sunday lunch here for my father-in-law's 80th birthday. There was a friendly greeting as soon as we walked in. The food was good. They had run out of one dessert but had an alternative on offer. My mother-in-law is not a big eater and is a bit fussy. The waitress was very helpful, suggesting a child... More
