It may have been just the day we went, but what a disappointment. Having been impressed in the past it was with confidence we books to meet friends there for lunch. The restaurant and grounds continue to impress and I personally could not fault the service, however the menu was, with one or two exceptions, very limited to “trendy pub... More

We have been here before but for a family Sunday lunch which was a success, so we have tried it again for a birthday meal, again a success, the food was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful, my only comment is that the service was a bit slow, but on a lovely summers evening with a bottle (or two)...

Had dinner here with my partner. Skipped the starters to leave room for dessert but hadn't realised how skimpy the portions were. I had the liver and bacon and my partner had the stuffed chicken. The liver was well cooked and tasty but there was more bacon than liver, the small mound of mash was grainy and the red onion... More

Visited here on a Friday lunchtime. Very well presented grounds, a lovely day, so we sat outside. Service was friendly and welcoming. We shared pork crackling twigs to start with - cooked just right - tasty and crunchy, without fear you might break your teeth! I had the sausages which were very tasty and of a good quality. My wife... More

We'd left booking until the day before but they still managed to squeeze us in at 12.30pm. The helpful manager and chef accommodated my daughter's vegan diet with some slight adjustment to the mushroom risotto from the menu and kindly made special a fruity dessert - it was important to let them know she was vegan in advance...but it's all...

Just back from a first time lunch at the Dog and Gun after reading review in Exquisite Essex. We were not disappointed. Lovely patio area - sun trap but must say tables a little annoying for taller peeps due to design leaving little leg room but heh I'm being picky. Our server was friendly and service was smooth and quick... More

The restaurant is very nicely decorated, food was nice, service could be improved, little things like having no salt and pepper on the table and wasn't offered so we had to ask for it. Also service was not particualarly fantastic.

I visited for the second time since Easter this week with my immediate family for an evening meal and a catch up with each other. Food was great again and served fairly quickly by friendly welcoming staff . Prices were still reasonable for the quality and was nice to kick back and relax without feeling rushed
