There have been a few changes of ownership over the years. I first knew it many years ago as The Weston Ringers when it was just a pub. However digressing aside, the new owner has got it absolutely right in my view. It has been very tastefully refurbished in a way which complements the old and the new.A group of... More

We recently had lunch at the Parson Woodeforde and overall it was quite disappointing. The actual environment is very pleasant and you can see the care they take for their customers with attention to detail but the quality of food was poor. We had what was called a ploughman's lunch but looked more like a cheese sandwich. The bread was... More

A last minsute decision to dine here on our way home was an unexpected delight. This reasonably spacious pub has been completely renovated and the retaurant at the back could not hvae been more comfortable. The menu was small and well chosen: when the food arrived it was well cooked, beautifully presented and delicious. A place to be sought out.

There was a party of 8 of us, it was the first time we had eaten there but would happily return. The main courses were excellent, portion size and presentation spot on. I had slow cooked belly pork and it melted in the mouth. A good selection of starters, mains, and desserts. Lovely atmosphere and service was first class.

Manager/waiter incredibly rude and invaded personal space. He needs some training. Steak with peppercorn sauce looked super on the plate with chips and salad. Asked for medium rare, got a raw, cold in the middle, slightly sealed effort that ruined the appetite just by cutting into it.

Thank you for your review. We apologize if you felt the service you received was in some way rude, however the staff were courteous and very apologetic to you. We are very sorry that your steak was under cooked but as soon as we realized we offered to take it straight back and replace it for you. You declined this... More

Very enjoyable lunch on Bank Holiday Monday, food very tasty and fresh and good value for money. Very nice Sauvignon Blanc at a sensible price. Service good perhaps a little slow but we were not in a hurry so not a problem.

We stayed one night, so had dinner and breakfast. Our evening meal was lovely, the wine good and very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful. The following morning was very sunny, so special thanks to the lovely young man who suggested breakfast on the terrace - smoked salmon and scrambled egg, beautiful sunshine, attentive service. If only we... More

A very enjoyable lunchtime. Front of house service a little over-bearing and at times erratic, but all part of the fun.Excellent bar service from a friendly and polite young man. Splendid lamb burger, generous portion, excellent chips. Very good steak, slightly over-cooked, but the peppercorn sauce was delicious. Good value given the quality of the food, well worth it.

Very disappointed in a place and shall not be returning or recommending. There was 3 of us for lunch we all were shocked at the very limited choice of bar menu. We then all ordered sandwiches to which there were only 3 options and were very disappointed by stale unedible bread when we highlighted this we were told it was... More
