Wholesome home made food

Ate here with a large group of friends. Service was good and the owner/manager was very attentive and helpful. Interesting menu with most of the food sourced locally. Being a large group between us we tried many different dishes and all agreed that they were either good or very good. Only open in... read more

My partner's meat dish was delicious, however, the vegetarian option was a little bland (basically roasted veg with a few dabs of soft cheese). The young waiter was a personable enough chap but lacked attention to detail. Our table candle remained unlit and we were not made aware of the specials board, only becoming aware that there was one when... More

Booked a Christmas dinner for six people. We waited one and a half hours for the starter. We then waited another hour and a half for the main meal. Seeing we had pre-booked the Christmas meal, one would have thought a place of roast turkey would have been ready to go. We did not dare order the dessert as it... More

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant half a dozen times over the last couple of years, most recently on 29th November 2014 and can honestly say that we have always really enjoyed the food, as have all our guests, and the drinks are very reasonably priced. However...sadly we wont be eating there again. The service on this... More

I like the fact this is a locally owned and run restaurant that sources local products and also brews it's own beer. The service is always very friendly and the food tasty.

Sunday lunch for 8, of whom 3 are fussy kids, one in a wheelchair. Food was competently prepared, fresh and wholesome. We had roast lamb, pork and, for the vegetarians, a couscous and almond bake, which was tasty and went well with the veg. Puddings were good - peach cheesecake crumble, Maids of Honour (little lemon cheesecake tarts served with... More

Went on a Thursday evening and it did not seem busy - there were 7 other people when we arrived. However, there was only one person who did everything bar the cooking! It was such a shame as I had read good local reviews for the restaurant but although the food was good, the long wait for it and the... More

Sunday lunch at this rather cramped restaurant in the busy commuterville town of Harpenden is a mixed affair. It's cheap (£10.99 for beef and 'all the trimmings', £1 more for lamb), but... I ordered lamb but received beef; I was in a hurry so couldn't be bothered to send it back. The standard of cooking is only canteen level with... More
