Still sat in the establishment having eaten what could loosely be described as a carvery. The value for money is disgraceful having being served up two tiny pieces of beef and gammon. The chef was not prepared to offer more when this was mentioned. To be perfectly honest I ended up not being overly bothered as the meat was tough... More

We visited this charming village pub tucked away on a small side road on the outskirts of East Hardwick. As our first visit we were very apprehensive on arrival but was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the very reasonably priced food. We had the carvery which was very good with a wide selection of fresh vegetables - none of... More
