Took some friends here for dinner I had the devilled kidneys followed by the Hampshire beef medallion and then an apple & rhubarb crumble. So they do good honest English food pretty well. The place is very busy at the weekends. 78%

Pleasant countrified surroundings, great service from friendly staff, in this beautiful village. Desserts a bit pricey and ordinary at £6 each...More

Had dinner here with a colleague and was a very good experience. Ordered the pork belly which was very tasty and a good amount of crackle (if you're into that). Good service, tasty food and good prices.

two very good courses for £12, well can hardly go wrong. Party of four. All of us had superb meals, highlight was the liver, didn't need a knife it was so soft. Would definitely eat there again. Its also dog friendly in the bar area
