Really enjoyed our meal here. Have driven past on numerous occasions but never made it in through the door. Sat in the main restaurant area which is cosy but atmospheric. I chose the Pan Fried Sea Bass with Chilli and Ginger Mash, Curry Salted Parsnip Crisps and a Creamy Coconut & Cashew Sauce. It really is an amazing main, full... More

We had a very good meal at Martins Pond. I explained on the phone when booking that we were celebrating my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary and they kindly decorated our table which was a lovely touch. We all enjoyed our individual meals which were presented very well and the service was good.

Always good food here, friendly staff, gets busy so need to book, extra seating out on the green if just stopping for a drink. Good choice of soft drinks too.

We have eaten at Martin's pond before and had good food, but this was the first time we have been on a Tuesday for the tasting menu. There was 7 courses with 2 small wines for £25,which is pretty good value. The first 2 courses are starterish and were pretty good. We know that the starters here are good, so... More

We went to Martins Pond today for lunch. Parking was easy, the staff were lovely and the food - absolutely gorgeous. The room we were seated in was nicely decorated but lacked a little ambience. Overall though it was lovely,mew will definitely be back!

Mel, Neil and Daniel made us very welcome at their pretty English country pub. Our 3 course Sunday lunch was superb, with a good choice and no prolonged wait. Everything was beautifully cooked and well presented. There was a good choice of wine and the local beer, American IPA, was delicious - it's obvious that Neil looks after it. Highly... More

Went with my wife hoping for a quiet evening meal. The food was excellent and the service was OK but the other customers voices echoed around the glass extension that is used for seating many of the customers and found ourselves unable to have a private conversation. I feel the place would be good for a small family lunch party... More

We regularly visit martins pond and have never been disappointed with the food. The only criticism I have is unfortunately the draft beer is a bit of a let down, I've yet to have a decent pint in there. This doesn't take anything away from the food/experience and it continues to be one of our favourite places to eat.
