Stil good.

Ten of us, 6 adults and 4 teenagers, booked for a Family dinner on Saturday evening. The staff were attentive and friendly and the waitress who took our order was on the ball with the ten various orders. Everyone was happy with their meals and considering we had two bottles of wine and a decent... read more

We booked a table for Saturday evening as it was our wedding anniversary. Smart staff, lovely friendly service without being overbearing. We were shown to our table and left to peruse the menu. By my standards this is mid range to fine dining, £5.00 to £9.00 for starters and £11 to £18 for mains. The food is always very good... More

Popped in Saturday evening, greeted with a warm welcome from behind the bar, ordered the chicken and leek pie and the Thai chicken curry which both were excellent, vegetables superbly cooked too, the dessert of Creme brûlée and delicious treacle tart were also excellent, we have never been disappointed when we visit! Brightened up a rainy day!

We used to like going here a lot, but haven't been for a while,until last week when decided to go for a birthday treat meal, and I've got to say we were very disappointed service was terrible and not much to choose from the menu, only one steak on the menu yet on their web page had numerous items. It... More

Had a very nice meal where we had Linc sausage and lion of lamb which went down very well. The pudding, including well presented cheese & biscuis, were also very nice. It's a pity there aren't any areas to sit and have a beer i.e. All seating is centred around food. Overall, I would visit again and I know family... More

I didn't leave a tip because I was being billed for a drink I did not have. A weak apology from a weak front of house/bar person. The evening was a birthday treat that was spoiled by this incident. Further improvements could be sofas by the fire whilst waiting for a table/friends to arrive, better quality paper napkins and training... More

Had been searching for somewhere to eat when we came across this delightful pub, hiding behind the Church in Stow. Lovely menu, with some excellent vegetarian options. My companion was very pleased with her roasted Mediterranean vegetable terrine, and I had an immense portion of steak and mushroom pie which was delicious and full of steak. A lovely meal and...

Booked Sunday lunch for five of us to celebrate my wife's birthday. We enjoyed an excellent three course meal. I enjoyed a soup starter - really excellent, while the others went for their specialty soufflé which they much enjoyed. My roast beef main course was first class and my companions gave similar reports for their choices. My Eton mess dessert... More
