The best service I have experience for a long time. Food was outstanding, staff very attentive and unobtrusive. Lovely family run restaurant.

“Good food - lovely service - good local beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Very pleasant evening meal here- the menu contains a few surprises - so we had a well prepared Prawn and white wine Risotto along with a dish of Baked Hake with Parmesan crust - the Risotto came with a dish of vegetables which were not over cooked and a bread roll ?? - and the Hake came with an Italian style chopped salad and some big chunky fries.Both dishes were freshly made and very tasty and properly presented - quantities were sufficient.

The service was great - really happy and friendly responsive girls and the local bitter Butcombe was exceptional.

This is a family style restaurant/pub and it was reasonably busy for a Monday evening - there is a welcoming atmosphere overall and it was a very pleasant evening meal experience overall.

“Great food at good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We ate here on Saturday afternoon. The staff were very friendly. I had the chicken and chorizo pie and mash potato and this was very tasty. The top of the pie was perfectly cooked and the chicken was well cooked too.The mash potato was creamy and buttery and such a large potion that I could not finish it. My husband had the scampi and chips which he said was nice. The apple crumble was nice and the custard was thick and creamy. Overall very good food, ample parking and reasonably priced.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

We had a fantastic meal this evening and would wholly recommend this establishment. The sea bass was a dream to savour, the lasagne was Devine and the fish cake and mozzarella was just superb.
