By living nearby we are lucky enough to be able to dine here whenever we want. Its just great - friendly atmosphere, food, service - all rolled into one. Not a big menu choice but plenty to choose from, steak was great. We'll certainly go back for more.

We are so pleased that we managed to discover this restaurant as we had a magnificent meal. The pub was pretty full with a party in one area and some lovely folk singers. We headed for the old court when the main restaurant is sited and were immediate given an appetiser of rosemary, date and shallot bread which was exquisite... More

My mother asked me to write a review as follows: 'I've been lucky to dine at restaurants all over the world. Many famous ones. That was about the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant." My review - how can it be that the food has got even better. Such good value.

Thanks for the lovely review, In april we welcomed Tom Moore a very talented young chef back to our team, he has worked with Greg several times over the last 10 yrs and they have a great working relationship which really shows in the food, having two pairs of hands in the kitchen has meant we can produce much more...

As we were staying just down the road in Rock Cottage, we decided to treat ourselves to dinner here. We had previously visited before the new owners took over & having read the good reviews, wanted to experience the changes for ourselves. The bar area is just inside & there are steps up to the main dining area, so this... More

We have eaten here a few times now and always it has been very good food served by very friendly and welcoming staff. This last time we were there we were with our family including grandchildren. The service and ambience could not have been better for us particularly as it was a birthday celebration and we enjoyed a great meal.

We booked in here after a poor experience elsewhere - the difference could not have been more marked. From the first contact to book, all was welcome and smiles: we felt really cherished. The ambience was lovely and waiting for our meal was no hardship. We were given a complimentary slice of delicious artisan bread (date and shallot) to keep... More
