We went with some local friends who have all been supporters of the Purefoy for a long time. The front of house staff tried so hard to try and make our evening special. We so desperately want the pub to work. They need to sort out the menu as it would be great to have nice pub food with the... More

Great food, great service really felt at home!! The food we had looked delicious, and we were absolutely deleted by the flavours and how well balanced they were. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine and very comfortable decor and atmosphere. definitely visit, enjoy engaging conversation with the staff a prepare to be surprised. A real hidden gem.

The food in this establishment is excellent, both in terms of quality and quantity. It is refreshing to find a country inn which is not serving all the usual pub grub. The Asian choices I tried were well presented and full of flavour. well done to the owner for being bold and innovative with his menu choice.

Called in for a meal and we weren't disappointed it was delicious. The bar manager matt ran through the Asian menu with us as we were unfamiliar with some of the dishes and based on his advice we ordered pork goyza which were so good I could have eaten many more and pork gatzu curry and a beef dish. The... More

Unstable pace for Managers !! Sunday lunch was fine but lacked the excitement of the previous team --menuwise. A plus tho' was the enthusiastic staff--nothing too much trouble. They have a superb act to follow-- I wish them well.

I visited with my grandson. We were made very welcome. The staff were very friendly and the manager was great in helping us with the menu. We had the Asian menu. Highly recommend the starter malay style prawns - mouth watering. Also highly recommend the chicken katsu curry. My grandson opted for then sausage and mash as a main. He... More

I visited this Gastro Pub/Asian Restaurant last night with hesitation given the damning reviews below. However, I am very glad that I did, because it turns out the reviews below are from a very select few people who don't seem to get on with the new owners. To be honest when it comes to trip advisor I generally don't take... More

The manager was excellent, very friendly and took good care of the customers. The timing was poor though, we had to ask when the next course was coming. Sadly, the food was terrible. Looked and tasted like it came from a frozen food grocer. The meat was tough, and the sauces were heavy, sweet and stodgy. My office canteen is... More

Booked a table for four on Friday night, although somewhat mixed reviews for the new owners thought we would try. First impressions very friendly and welcoming service, we were able to try beer/wine prior to buying which was great. Unfortunately, very disappointed with the menu, from reviews and website we understood that there would be Asian food plus general pub... More

Dear davidbuckthorpe, Thank you so much for your feedback, support & kind words. You are very right in what you said about an identity. Fortunately for us due to your feedback we have now pushed to give ourselves one and have decided to concentrate fully on the Asian menu. At present we have 7 starters, 8 mains which include 2...
