We came here a couple of Sundays ago to celebrate a big birthday. It was a reasonably large family party of 11 so they had quite a bit to contend with in this mixed group (aged 6 to 80). The service was on the ball and the food was very good. great choice on the menu too. We hadn't eaten... More

After reading reviews I visited and was disappointed, we had to wait forever for a table even though there were free tables, I was told they were booked but one or two were still vacant after eating. food was average but expensive for pub grub. Not my cup of tea!!!

Hi there; sorry to hear you were less than happy with your visit. To alleviate our diners waiting too long for food, we try and stagger a certain number of diners at 15 minute intervals, so food can be served promptly to our guests. Therefore, there may have been tables that were free, but subsequently booked out. Either way, I... More

We ate here on Friday evening 5 meat eaters and 1 vegetarian. My bean casserole comprised new potatoes cut in halves, green peppers and a few beans in a bland sauce. The herb dumpling was huge, dry and tasteless. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary with relatives and as the other's meals were all very nice I didn't want to... More

We only called in for a drink whilst we waited for a table at the nearby Running Fox cafe. Did not relise this place served such appetising looking food otherwise we would have made for there. A very good atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming and we will return to sample the food soon.

Booked after reading so many good reviews. Obviously busy, but that isn't always a bad thing. Seated, orders taken, drinks and starters delivered all in good time. Mains arrived and from our party of four two plates had obviously been waiting for the others to be ready and had started to curl. Then the wait began... After finishing eating took... More

We booked a table for 2 pm today and we sat down to be served at 3 15. Food arrived at 20 to 4. There were 8 of us and while the lamb eaters were happy with their lamb. My turkey was bland and the gravy tasteless. The cheese board was stingy sized and it was served with margarine that... More

This pub/restaurant is in a lovely location in the village adjacent to the river. The atmosphere is very welcoming and the place is clean and well appointed. The restaurant gets exceedingly busy as people come from the locality and from further afield because of its good reputation, so reservations are really important. The menu is comprehensive and includes seafood platters,... More
