We ate here on Sunday. It was a good job we reserved a table. It was very busy. There was a good menu selection. I opted for the Mullet starter with a cheeky lemon foam that really complimented the fish, my friend went for the Halloumi, perfectly balanced with the balsamic and homemade pesto, We both opted for the roast...

Pretentious, over priced, don't really get what all the fuss is about with this place, service was ok but all in all nothing to write home about. Food was average, meat was over cooked.

this was our first visit since reopened good local reputation so thought we would go to celebrate my wife's birthday with family. Service was not attentive, there was one big party in the restaurant that always seemed to take precedence, food was good but not great as expected and choices were not great and on expensive side for what it...

Service was 1st class. Lovely atmosphere however I was expecting 1st class food! The menu was good but my steak was tough and nothing special.Chips were boring compared to what you get served else where. Others in our group said their meals were ok.

How nice to find another pub near Towcester serving good quality food. We enjoyed the lively, friendly service and the food was great and beautifully presented. We'll be going again!

Went for dinner on a Friday evening - bar and restaurant very nicely decorated. We had pate to start which was very nice and Pork for main which was truly delicious. I was really impressed with the food and the only gripe was our waiter did not have the best table manner. Otherwise I would highly recommend it.

Mid Week Dinner Treat - we went here on the off chance - and were delighted with the meal that we had. There is a nice bar area for a pre-dinner drink - Prosecco is recommended. We had the Camembert to share and it was a meal in itself - scrumptious. I had fish of the day stone bass -... More
