Ate here while staying at the attched Premier Inn. Booking advised as they are often busy it seems. Certainly it was busy when I arrived and there was a small queue for tables and a 40 minute wait for a table...though I had booked so was seated immediately. Despite the staff being rushed off their feet, the food arrived in... More

Staying at the Alveston house hotel on a business stopover just round the corner from this place but that was dead so thought I'd take a wander for a beer or two, Alveston seems a nice village and I came upon this place. Nice pub with olde worlde charm linked to a funny sort of Premier Inn that looks like... More

Went here on Saturday evening with old friend. 5 in group. Staff very friendly and seated us promptly. Starters were very average. Disappointed with lifeless looking salad I was served. Main courses were ok. Our friends steak had to be sent back as cold. Were not charged for this meal. My sea bass was very poor,small and unappetising, risotto cold... More

The food was well presented delicious and arrived at the table piping hot. The staff were very welcoming. It was busy so would advise booking a table. Breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food buffet Style, but with the availability of having fresh porridge or eggs cooked differently poached instead of fryed.

Tepid Food, Vastly overpriced. Very poor bar service. Would not recommend. Surprised that the Premier Inn next door would have anything to do with this eatery. Some staff in black uniforms, other very casual tending on scruffy. Suggest a visit to Tesco's 5 mins down the road to get a sandwich would be a much better option, (and I am... More

Food was lovely as always with a nice relaxed atmosphere. We were a party of 10 who work together and we had pre ordered our meals! The only issue was trying to pay separately for our meals... This was time consuming and used up a fair chunk of our 1 hour lunch break.
