We visited for Sunday lunch as a group of 8 including our 3 boys. Fortunately I phoned to check the booking as when I did they had no record. After a little uncertainty they said they would find a way to accommodate. On arrival the table we were shown was nice. Looked to be intended for a large group and... More

This pub has great ambience and a lovely rural setting. This is gourmet style pub food and the prices reflect this. On the whole the food was good quality but the whole experience was let down by: 1) too long a wait before anyone came to take the order - a good 10 minutes but there were several staff chatting...

I visited today, as a guest of a friend who was paying, on my recommendation. What has happened? The menu has changed....for the worse. More burgers,... More
