Living in the village of Ovington we feel ourselves privileged and spoilt to have this wonderful restaurant on our doorstep. We have had lunch, dinner and special events on many occasions and have never had a bad experience. Norman and his staff provide excellent dishes lovingly prepared and beautifully presented and a warm and friendly welcome. Other reviews have commented... More

Fabulous food, excellent service. Twice a month they have a Special menu which is fixed priced and only do 2 courses for a set price Steak or Salmon for mains extra if you want A dessert. Price includes a pint or glass of wine. You must try it, very popular as it is so good.

Unassuming from the outside, but a fabulous restaurant with a fine menu and chef proprietor. Great waiting staff created a good welcome. The confit of duck and local lamb dishes were excellent. the specials alone were enough...... Try this place and be as surprised and delighted as we were.

After reading the positive reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to treat my wife to a surprise lunch. The vegetable and lentil soup was delicious, and I can honestly say the roast beef I had was superb, perfectly cooked beef with really fresh vegetables and a huge Yorkshire pudding. One of the best Sunday lunches I have had in a long... More
