As a pub this is traditional but incredibly well presented and if you have overseas visitors, definitely a place to impress. The restaurant is beautifully set and is like dining in a stately home with the layout and decor. The staff are very pleasant, friendly and attentive. The menu is limited but you will find several unusual items on their... More

Visited a Saturday evening for dinner. Food was very good, especially starters. Well-stocked bar and a nice welcoming atmosphere. Excellent service.

Lovely food with efficient friendly staff. Spacious restuarant, so you are not overhearing every word from the table next to you.

Very poor service, only three staff to serve a full restaurant. Starters were very good as were the desserts but one main course was very good and the other very bad. The bad was the sirloin steak I ordered. Normally sirloin is the tastiest cut 20 to 25mm thick with a collar of fat half way around the steak. mine... More

Found the French Horn by sheer chance - a diversion due to a closed road! What a great pub. Lovely setting, excellent food - and friendly & efficient service. Something for everyone on the menu - at reasonable prices. We'll be back!

Wonderful pub with great food in a lovely setting but would be even better if a bit more thought could be given to the fact veggies are not a minority these days. I have visited twice with friends and family recently and whilst they have been awash with choices including various roast options on a sunday the menu allows for... More

Visited last month and wrote review criticising lack of warmth and friendliness of staff which let down good food. Disappointed to see that others have experienced same since. However, visited last Wednesday with a group of friends and ate in the dining room this time. Food just as good as on last visit (same menu) and waiting staff (different from... More

Excellent meal at short notice. The welcome, the beer, the food, the service - nothing but praise. Lingered over the meal in lovely surroundings without ever feeling rushed or hurried. Look forward to returning

I've been here a few times and went here for my birthday as I believe it is the best restaurant in the local area - as before, I was not disappointed. The food is delicious, and the service very good. I've been here for lunch too with young children and it was very family friendly.
