Delicious food, lovely restaurant

We chose this restaurant as it had interesting vegetarian dishes rather than the usual risotto and lasagne. The starter of walnut and blue cheese pate was absolutely delicious. The whitebait was also very tasty. The vegetarian pie was also very good, but may I suggest a different filling from... read more

We absolutely love this pub for the decor, atmosphere, friendly staff and great selection of drinks, however the food recently has consistently been a let down which is a real shame. My main criticism would be the lack of flavour and seasoning in any meal we have tried....and no matter how many times we have tried the chips, we never... More

Found this place whilst out house hunting! Beautiful pub, welcoming staff and absolutely amazing food followed by the best coffee I have ever had in a pub! This place is 30 mins from home but it is definitely worth the drive and I will , without a doubt , visit again. A real gem!

Food was ok and service too. Nothing special but not bad. I'd visit again with friends. Only thing that puts me off are the management replies here on trip advisor. Is being sarcastic and rude when people are being honest about their experiences the best way to respond?! I'm not so sure...

Had dinner here with colleagues whilst in the area for work. The menu was slightly on the high side price wise, but the food was of excellent quality. I opted for the rack of lamb with dauphinoise potatoes and was very impressed. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the potatoes simply melted.
