I have been coming to this pub for years and raved about the food, the seared scallops on a jerusalem artichoke puree, the scotch quail eggs, the puddings...but four of us went this past weekend and it seems to have slipped a few notches. Whilst the Sunday roast was lovely, the cheese board was fantastic, there was a fair bit of over salting and the service was not as attentive. We went back for brunch later in the week and it was more dissapointing...a burger the size of a postage stamp for 14 pounds, a limp salad albeit with excellent chips. But again, all prepared with a heavy hand on the salt front. And the prices have gone up....I can understand if this is due to raw material price increases but it seems excessive..after all, this is still a pub in the country, not central London.
Some additional fun, however, is the Guernsey milk dispenser in glass bottles outside the pub, which dispenses the most decadent Guernsey milk in glass bottles...that is worth the trip.
