My husband and I popped in for lunch after a morning out in the countryside. The food smelt delicious cooking and the menu was full and varied. The welcome was a little 'uninterested' by the staff, but the food could not be faulted as it was delicious. Would have been nice to of been offered a choice of custard,cream or... More

Where to begin! What a beautiful pub with a lovely land lady and great staff! It was my husbands birthday yesterday and we were staying at the hethrope hotel. After staying before the dinner was not great so this stay we decided we would venture out! I spoke with a lovely land (I think the land lady) whom I told... More

Delicious meal and great bar staff. The goat cheese omelette was light and a joy to eat. Would definitely return.

A group of 9 of us had lunch here and the unanimous verdict was that this pub is excellent in all respects. The food is good, the service prompt, and it is excellent value for money. The staff are efficient and it is clearly a well-run ship.

You will have to go a long way to beat this really genuine pub/inn for the quality of food served. All of the food was at a level you would expect from a top-end restaurant let alone a tucked-away country inn. We were in a group of 10 and everyone's choice of starter/main/desserts were incredible and without exception. Not cheap,... More

Having walked from our hotel and hoped the food would be good, were weren't disappointed. Made to feel welcome both nights (had to try it again for our second night), the food was great - I tried the belly pork which is a dish I wouldn't normally choose, but wanted mash and vegs rather than chips. I was very impressed... More

We had our team dinner here and the food was great. Our customer service manager had pre booked it and we had chosen our meals, so the place did get a heads up, but the food was so gorgeous. They didn't have a gluten free roll to accompany my soup, which was disappointing considering they had plenty of warning I... More
