Not much on this time that I fancied but that is my fault. What we had was delicious and well presented. It will not deter me from visiting again.

This beautifully appointed Pub/Restaurant has a very good reputation so we were very much looking forward to our meal. The welcome was excellent and the barman/waiter certainly knew his wines. The menu is quite extensive and ranges from the traditional pub food (fish and chips) to ribeye steak and many nouvelle cuisine dishes in between. Prices from just about £10... More

I have heard a lot of people rave about this place... to be honest it is seriously underwhelming.. We went for lunch last week and both had fish and chips, the fish was greasy and the batter hard and over cooked... the mini sweet was over priced at £4 how do you think I felt when I had a usual...

Our party of six turned up to a wonderful country pub to be welcomed by staff who were very attentive and friendly. The set menu was great value for money. We were spoilt for choice. All in all a lovely afternoon of gorgeous food, drink and most excellent company.

Super surroundings. Marvellous service and absolutely amazing food to boot. This place really does live up to it's reputation. We had booked well in advance and had been told that this was the place to go. We weren't disappointed. We have family coming up in the summer and have already booked to return!
