Visited for lunch on Saturday, very quiet, I had liver which was nice, partner has soup and sandwiches which were fine. Little disappointed with sweet menu as very chocolate based, I had crème Brule which was supposed to be orange but couldn't taste any orange! Presume it is a bit more lively in the evenings!

Superb food at this village pub with service to match. Thanks guys for a top night. You will struggle to find a better steak anywhere, and the chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and mozzarella is awesome. Will be back soon. Thanks guys.

Quality of room and stay good, restaurant looked good, however quoted £55 but charged £75 and every breakfast item was out of date so didnt manage to get breakfast before we departed so pretty annoyed!!!!!

I've just re-read my review of this establishment from 2013 when I awarded a four star rating for an exceptional meal.Ten minutes ago I returned from my latest visit and quite honestly I've been very generous to award two stars for a meal that is best forgotten. If the chef can honestly say hand on heart that my risotto contained...

Been avoiding here for a while but new chef enticed us back through the door and so glad we did. The service and quality is brilliant and can't help but stop in on our cycle route. Great place to eat for Sunday roast and date nights.

Absolutely fabulous meal. Great portions... a ridiculous amount of delicious food for Sunday lunch. Merge that in with lovely staff and raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake to die for! Thoroughly recommend to anyone 👍

I booked into this establishment 'on spec' as they say,it didn't come up in my any of my previous searches which is a shame as it is lovely. Quiet location but but great access to major routes and fantastic facilities as well as food. Great bar menu and adequate continental breakfast supplied. Only downside - No WiFi

Thanks for the review. We shall work harder to advertise our rooms better. I'm so sorry about our WiFi. We usually have a strong connection, unfortunately our wireless has been down for the past week, soon to be fixed. We hope to see you again soon.

What has happened? So disappointed. Used to be really nice here but won't be going again. Too bright, cheap pine tables, limited menu...like being in an outdated cafe. Food was OK. Probably nice to sit outside in the courtyard for a drink or even to sit in the pub area to eat...but the ambience in the restaurant area is in...

Poor food and service marred our evening with friends. We discovered that the table we were guided to was unclean and had to request for it to be cleaned. The platter to share of hams with cheese was nice. However the main course, particularly the paella was poor with only a few prawns and too much rice. Whilst the service...

We visited this country pub for Sunday lunch. It was so disappointing. The mushroom starter was something you could rustle up at home in 5 minutes and the roast just looked sad. A very small flat Yorkshire sat on medium to well cooked beef (we both ordered rare) with vegetables that tasted 3 days old. The roasties were good but...
