To be fair this visit was last year and things may have changed. Nice couple run it but when I went in on a Sunday, the chef was away. It certainly wasn't the best roast - potatoes were hard and the carrots were grey! Yorkshire puddings were something else though - HUGE!!! Haven't been back since....

The food chosen was wonderful and the buffet at night set out was just as a high standard "everyone commented" a must visit venu I live around the corner... More

Booked a table for lunchtime. When I called initially there was a lot of hesitation as to whether there was a table available, it sounded as though they were going to be very busy but would squeeze us in. When we arrived the restaurant had one customer. There were a lot of flies buzzing around which was quite off putting.... More

We looked at the menu board, we saw pasties and sausage rolls in the warmer in the window we went in. Waited, nothing, waited, someone appeared, yes, they did have a table (it's actually huge out the back but only the front was being used) but they were only doing the carvery today. Okay, so we had a budget carvery,... More

Booked a table for 12 for a works night out and WOW . Food was fantastic and well presented and most importantly delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive. Could not have asked for more. Would highly recommend and can not wait for our next visit. Well done Amie and Tristan we all had a fantastic night.

Visited restaurant again, this time for Sunday Lunch. Most certainly good value for money and excellent service from the time we arrived until the time we left. Choice of either Beef or Pork, both excellently cooked and excellent selection of vegetables. I cannot rate this establishment highly enough, it's a true gem tucked away in a small country village.

If you enjoy quality English Fayre at sensible prices, then this is a place to head for! The roast beef was perfectly cooked and various vegetables dishes were in abundance..the braised cabbage was mouth-watering!! Portions were as big or small as you wanted them to be and the giant Yorkshire puddings in the shape of mushrooms could fill a plate... More
