Amazing!

Birthday visit on a Thursday evening. The place was alive with chatter and the amazing aroma of Serrano ham! Cannot fault anything about the three course meal, the service or the price. Superb

On a very busy night, because of local horse racing, they accommodated our request to increase our table numbers from 5 to 7 at short notice. Service was exemplary and very well measured. A starter of local asparagus was nicely presented and well dressed but a bit light on asparagus. A soft shell crab starter was described as brilliant! A... More

Our first time visit to this, what turned out to be, a very excellent pub and restaurant in West Ashling. Four of us for lunch on a lovely sunny day, friendly staff, an excellent menu, great wines and a nice couple of pints of beer. We couldn't fault it. The only very minor point, is the restricted parking that can... More

Don't actually think my title sums up what a treasure this place is. The hustle and bustle of a proper decent pub and absolutely delicious food await you if you have the foresight to book a table. Attentive staff man a thoughtfully stocked bar and seem to have an excellent working knowledge of all aspects of the pub. The menu... More

My husband and I visited this pub/restaurant for a meal and was so pleased we did. The place has a lovely feel to it. The staff were friendly and knowledgable about what was on the menu. The 24 hour slow cooked brisket of beef was to die for, tender, juicy and so tasty! The puddings all sounded gorgeous but decided... More

I have been to this delightful pub/ restaurant 3 times now and each has been a lovely and delicious experience. Good service and warm atmosphere. The menu is interesting with lots of choice and although more expensive than most pub meals- worth the extra cost for the care taken with the quality of the food. The portions are generous so...

Make sure you book first. As earlier reviews have said, this pub has consistently high quality meals. Friendly and attentive staff. Just don't turn up and expect a table as it's normally booked out. Can't really fault it.

A proper gastropub pub. The food was high quality. the staff were welcoming, knowledgeable and efficient. We were going to turn up early ( 18.30) without a booking but decided to call and only to get in at 18.00. So, do book. overall, high Quality and great value.
