Small little local pub just off the motorway. Great location for dropping in whilst driving on the M11. Good home cooked food including sandwiches, good pub basics and daily specials. A couple of guest ales and a few lagers. Very friendly staff. Pub has a couple of benches at the front next to the car park. Toilets desperately need some... More

This was fabulous! On a cold Sunday lunchtime the place was packed (do book ahead), but service was flawless and the food was one the best Sunday roasts I have ever had. Good sized portions, perfectly cooked. Even the boys had no room for pud, so not tested! We would come back, but it's a long way from Norfolk!

As a table of 6 I expected there to be an issue or two but the service was flawless! The waitresses were really lovely and the whole place is warm and welcoming.We all ordered the Sunday roast and most of us thoroughly enjoyed it. My veg was a bit bland but the meat was perfectly roasted! This is the second... More

We were looking for a local pub lunch - somewhere with a good menu and atmosphere. Trip advisor's reviews encouraged us to try the Rainbow & Dove and we were certainly not disappointed. Despite the fact that it was a busy Friday lunchtime the excellent service was friendly and helpful. As well as an inviting main menu there were also... More

Booked a birthday party here based on the menu online. Unfortunately we didn't realise that the menu we were looking at was the valentines day menu. So the one we got wasn't the same. However when asked they were happy to prepare something off menu (as long as they had the ingredients). When we arrived, we were slightly worried as... More

The pubs serves traditional meals but done very well. I had the homemade burger which was plump and served in a bun with tomato, melted cheese, bacon... More
