Just returned from Sunday roast at the Parson and to say it was a disappointment is an understatement!! Cold food bad service and a bill that was certainly over the top!! Better pubs else where in the vicinity cannot say how bad it was. It was bad 3 years ago and we decided to give it another go but was... More

i read some of the less than positive reviews on trip advisor and I was a little nervous of the lunch party I had been invited to. However I shouldn't have worried as the meal was wonderful and all six of us were enthusiastic about our choices. The service was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome. I... More

We visited here for the first time yesterday. There were eleven family members including two toddlers aged 2. It was a set menu. We went early evening and enjoyed our meal. Drinks were reasonably priced and food was of excellent quality. We will go again.

My friend and I visited this pub on a weekday lunchtime, pub is very well appointed and appears clean. The barstaff seemed false the particular chap in question did not appear to listen to what was requested, Americano coffee was offered and accepted but luke warm filter coffee was what we received, to be fair when my friend mentioned this...

Today's was a spontaneous visit and we arrived at 1.50pm to find the carpark full and the restaurant packed. That was probably a good indication that our opinion is shared widely - not a special day and the pub is in the middle of nowhere; its worth the journey! The restaurant inside was very nice, lots of exposed old bricks... More

We had been to the parson some years ago so we thought we would give it a go. Four of us went and had a nice greeting when we arrived and shown to our table for the night . Log fire burning in the lounge area was a nice touch on a cold night. We asked to see the chef... More

You can be sure that you can always judge a restaurant or in this case a pub by the cleanliness of its toilet facilities. I've been in 5 star hotels that don't match the toilets here. So I knew the food would be good and so it proved. Mother had braised lamb shank which fell off the bone and my... More

Popped in for lunch mid December and sat by the wood burner in the front bar. Not particularly busy. Staff were fine. Food good, arguably a tad over priced.
