Decided to try somewhere new for date night, I was chatting to a lady whilst in a queue and she recommended Home Sweet Home for a nice meal. It's a lovely country pub in a quiet location, when we arrived we were seated in " the most popular seats for couples" but there was a large noisy party sat next... More

We booked a table(and pre-booked our order) for our party of 16 for 7.30 on a Tuesday. Wow! We were meant to be sitting at the table, knives and forks at the ready at 7.30! By 7.45 the waiter was hovering, saying he couldn't hold the food any longer (we were waiting for some stragglers) as there was another large... More

We had a lovely lunch here. Food was top quality, staff were very helpful and friendly. 6 adults and 3 infants all happily accommodated. It is the quintessential English country pub.

Had a lovely lunch here today with a friend after struggling to find somewhere open and serving food on a bank holiday. Great welcome, very hospitable. Most attractive pub inside and out. However, maybe don't arrive famished as portion size is ladylike!

Their Sunday Roasts are amazing, and their home made burgers are fantastic. We have Ben there a few times now and it always impresses.

On a Tuesday night when so many pubs close near us, this was the third I tried. It's a lovely pub with a fantastic central fireplace, so very cosy. I ate in the bar which is charming. I had the burger which was as good a burger as I have had for some time. The burger was excellent and the... More

Recently popped in for a visit and was pleasantly surprised. Nice roaring fire and a great decor. There were a few downsides but here's the good sides. Firstly burgers were amazing, would recommend them to anyone beautifully stacked and comes with a chilli jam and homemade chips. The staff were great friendly and chatty gave us plenty of time to...

We felt really welcome at this beautiful pub and the choice of food was very good. We chose from the lunch specials, a starter and main for about £13 which seemed good value. Attentive service and very pleasant chatty owner. Highly recommended.
