Hi there, we are disappointed you felt your sausage roll was not good value for money. This is off the bar snack/light bites menu so in all honesty we are not trying to make it something it's not and I can assure you it's heated...More

Came here for lunch and food was absolutely delicious & service very friendly. Location is also lovely - we walked around the lake and in the woods afterwards. Perfect pub lunch!

So looks like this drab, dreary, atmospherically lacking pub doesn’t like criticism! The food, given the cost and portion side, was overpriced, bland, over cooked and nothing really special at all! I was part of the rest of the party, who couldn’t be bothered to...More

If you want good local beer, then you need to go a long way to beat the Stephan Langton. But there’s a lot more to this tucked away country pub than meets the eye. Firstly, it located in the idyllic location of Friday Street, nestled...More
