Great Sunday lunch

We used to know this old coaching inn many, many years ago when we lived in the village and it was one of those ghastly chain restaurants, but the 'then and now' difference could hardly be greater. The decor, ambience, service and food combine to take it to a level where I'd happy to take friends... read more

Have visited this establishment twice in recent years (last time 14/9/13) for food. The food here is excellent and the place has a nice informal ambience. Next time we will stay there as well. Easy to find just off the A21

We ate here on bank holiday Monday for lunch. This is a nice old pub, with a lovely outside area. The food we ordered in general was fine, steak puddings, but my sister ordered scampi with chips, both very overdone, what a shame that they couldn't get a simple dish right. Waitresses very nice and friendly. Just don't expect the... More

Firstly we must say that we went to this pub to eat and not to stay. The Sunday night carvery looked quite nice and we thought that a good country pub could not mess that up. How wrong we were! The roast beef & turkey were tasteless but the ham was ok as it was salty and could not be... More

Great for a Sunday Roast, the carvery is excellent value for money. Service is good and food plentiful. Go early and you don't need to book.

Excellent food, reasonable prices with great staff. If all pubs were like this, we'd be laughing. Thoroughly recommended, and we will return with friends shortly, even though we live 50 miles from it.
