We attended the Pony and Trap for lunch as part of some birthday celebrations. We have been to this venue on a number of occasions over several years. In recent years though, we have particularly enjoyed their lunch service as it tends to be a bit quieter. The venue itself has a warm, rustic, and a high standard finish. I... More

... But fully booked. Although the lad on the phone was a bit matter of fact in the phone and not too apologetic we decided to check out the pub for a drink. The staff were actually really lovely and it liked very well run, nice decor and food looked very tempting. We will try and book with better notice... More

I'm sorry this is a short review. Basically, never expect to have a favourite on the menu, this place is innovating all the time. Occasionally you can find something that you've enjoyed before, but so far, I've never been disappointed by the tastes/flavours of the food here. Forget it's a Michelin (I think that's the correct spelling) chef. The place... More

Have wanted to visit the Pony and Trap for a while, but not being too keen on tasting menus ( I kind of like knowing what I shall be putting in my mouth before arriving ! ) we opted to go for Sunday lunch on an anniversary. Very pleased with the meal, traditional food but expertly cooked, and served by... More

We took a drive out in to the countryside on a lovely sunny evening and stumbled across The Pony & Trap. We sat in the garden which has beautiful views of the rolling countryside, the service was some of the best we've ever experienced and the food was outstanding. We will definitely be returning soon. Highly recommended.

Went with family for 'Taste of Summer' tasting menu. Each course was wonderful - loved the quirky touches such as Blackcurrant,Cucumber,Elderflower Rocket!! Could not find anything to fault! The service was excellent too - TJ was attentive, friendly and efficient! We are all looking forward to returning to try a different Taster Menu. Thank you all!
