Went here with a couple of friends who recommended the place, having previously had a good evening meal. Well, our steak was so tough it was almost inedible and the whole meal was only slightly warm. I suspect that it had been plated up for at least twenty minutes before it was served. It was lunchtime in the weekday and... More

Really want to keep this secret as it is such a great location. Not a cheap eat (or drink) but the environment is worth the extra. Enjoy!!

We went for lunch - great location but food very average, drinks and food very expensive. I don't mind expensive if good value for money. The spaghetti vongole had 5 clams in it and not much else needed a lot of seasoning to give it any flavour at all. The crab salad was a bought in dressed crab in a... More

I have chosen to eat both lunchtime and dinner time at this great pub many many times and have never been disappointed other than the other day when I turned up to introduce a new friend to the place at 2pm and was not allowed to eat. The menu is simple fresh fare and inexpensive for the quality. Service at... More

We decided at the last minute to go out for Sunday lunch. We had seen this place on a google search and decided to give it a go. What a great decision. We were lucky as they only had a couple of tables available. We both had a Sunday roast and it was fantastic. The beef was cooked to perfection... More

I have lunched here many times and never been disappointed, and today was no exception. The interior is just right, scrubbed wooden tables and hop bines hanging from the ceiling, traditional but in a modern idiom. I keep coming back because of the wonderful food and brilliant staff, but of course the major attraction is the beer brewed on the... More

The perfect setting for drinks, lunch or dinner. The boys say the beer is brilliant and so much choice. We had dinner there the other evening and food was really, really good. I had the risotto which was cooked to perfection. Some of us had the rack of lamb and others the pork. The service was good and and the... More

How very disappointing. My wife and I have loved this pub/restaurant for a number of years. It has been a 'go to' destination for a long time. On Saturday night we booked and duly turned up. The old place is careworn. There is no sign of leadership or management. The service was patchy. In fairness, the waiters didn't do too... More

First visit to this pub and weren't disappointed ! Set in a small village opposite a lovely green! Good lunch menu and good service,I don't think there is a main restaurant but the bar area is fine! Will go again!
