“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I recently took a group of 24 people here for lunch and although we only ordered sandwiches and soup the feedback was excellent; generous portions and good quality. The service was prompt and nothing was too much trouble.

“Not good...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Food which tasted as though it had come from the freezer. All for quite a steep price, just paid the same for restaurant in Bath which is top on trip advisor. Waste of money.

“Very expensive food of low quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Felt meal was of very low quality for the price.. Roast beef was extremely dry & vegetables very over cooked... The duck pancakes & desserts of cheesecake tasted as though had come straight out of a box... Certainly not good value for money.,.

“Not impressed...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Went with some friends for a late lunch. Two of us ordered "platters" which turned out to be straight out of the freezer, ready made, deep fried shrimp, scampi, vegetables, garlic mushrooms etc

Not impressed in today's competitive pub food market. On the same hill alone are 2 better options. Won't be rushing back I am afraid to say.

“A must visit restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

First class service, steak to die for, cannot recommend this eatery highly enough. Have been going there regularly for the last 6 or 7 years and alway have the steak and stilton sauce. My friend always has the lamb shank.
All food cooked perfectly and a warm welcome from hosts Heather and Alan.
Good wine menu and plenty of real Ales to be sampled. Situated just on outskirts of the National Trust Village of Lacock so ideal to make a day of it.
Book in advance to avoid dissappointment as due to it's popularity can get quite busy.
