Me and my partner were recommended to visit this place after some friends of ours thoroughly enjoyed the food. We are so glad we gave this beautiful country pub a go. We had 'the barley mow pie' and a tai yellow chicken curry and both were delicious, the service was good from the waitress with table checks to make sure... More

We went in on a Thursday lunchtime for a light lunch. Options were sandwiches or ploughmans or a cooked meal, so we decided on a starter. This is something we usually do when we are out and normally thoroughly enjoy. Sadly the roasted peppers had only had a quick glimpse of heat as they were quite hard still. It was... More

We were recommended to try this pub/eaterie as it had recently changed hands and was providing Thai food. We went for an early dinner so the place wasn't busy, the menu had one or two Thai dishes on offer but other than that it wasn't any different from many other places. We ordered Tempura Prawns to start which were very... More

Average pub food. Appalling service. Felt sorry for very young waiting staff who clearly had not been trained. Need more trained staff

Naile knows how to cook Asian food and as ever her recent theme evening was quality. The comprehensive menu pressed all the right buttons. H&W could learn a lot from her

This is a lovely place for a super pub lunch. There is plenty of room and a nice extensive menu with something for everyone, including a couple of Asian-inspired dishes. The service is good, attentive but not intrusive, and a choice of small/large dishes as well for the main course which is good for smaller appetites.
