We visited on a Sunday and the adults had the roast pork. The veg with it were lovely (carrots, creamed cabbage and bacon, roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese). The only downsides were a lack of yorkshire pudding (I know it's pork, but hey, where's my yorkshire pud?) and the fact that the pork was a thick cut from the pork... More

I've eaten here twice recently and the food and service are excellent. The olde world French decor and relaxed atmosphere makes for a very enjoyable dining experience, and the service is attentive but not 'in your face'. The seafood sharing platter as a starter is delicious and offers very generous portions.

This is our favourite local restaurant with very friendly staff and excellent food. The menu is varied and the food is excellent. We love eating in the main bar area at the corner table but restaurant is very nice. Has a lot of character and a great garden to relax in when the sun is out. I would highly recommend.

If you want a relaxing, friendly uncomplicated high standard meal in a beautiful country pub, this fits the bill. John and Richard make every effort to ensure that your visit is enjoyable weather you are visiting for business or pleasure, and the Head Chef Danny produces high standard food every time, I really would recommend The French Horn to anyone.

A colleague had recommended The French Horn and gushed about how good it was so we decided to give it a go. The bar area was busy upon arrival and we were shown to a corner table within the main bar area as the restaurant area was fully booked (I think we were lucky to get a table as it... More
