Lovely roast, nice and hot with organic vegetables. Beef was very tender and chicken was moist. Lovely homemade gravy. Reminded me of having Sunday lunch at my mums. Service was extremely quick and waitresses very friendly and helpful. Will return

9 of us went for lunch today to celebrate my nephew's 18th birthday. Food was fantastic and service was quick and efficient. The boys all loved the homemade burgers and the cheesy chips were amazing ! Good wholesome food at a reasonable price with a lovely pub atmosphere. We will return .!

The service was efficient, very friendly and provided excellent value for money. Tea and coffee... More

Five of us went there for lunch. It didn't seem particularly busy. We were advised that all food was seasonal and the menu was therefore limited and that all food was cooked to order, we were told that the meals would take a while. He was right, we waited quite a long time for our food. We had to go... More

The service is friendly and attentive, the food is fresh. One of the best roasts I've had in a while. Credit to the chef and her team.

Appalling lunch time menu. Not much on offer at all. Settled for ham, egg and chips. The chips were so hard and under-cooked, I couldn't even get my fork in some on them. The eggs were burnt on the bottom and hard. The waitress asked if everything was alright, I said no not really and explained what was wrong with... More

We went to to have a drink with the new landlords , very friendly . Nice change from previous landlord . Many changes are being planned , back to a normal british food establishment , not Thai food. So far it looks like they are doing a good job only time can tell .Good look to them .

First visit here went with family, felt an outsider from the start. friendly young guy took the drinks order, got drinks sat table, got menus to see what we fancied for evening meal, as we were discussing this, an older guy walked through the restaurant and gave us the dirtiest look ever and walked behind the bar!

Dropped by to sample Thai food and Fullers beer. Great evening and such a good place. But sadly this this the last night as the owners are leaving tomorrow. Will have to check out their new place in Marlborough.

The Thai cuisine is first class, service is very good. This place is quite hard to find but it's worth the effort.
