If you are looking for a lovely local pub where you can pop along to have a few cosy drinks before you amble home to settle down to your home cooked lunch, DONT GO HERE ! I would not advise using this pub for drinks only. They are firmly geared towards food. We went along just for a drink and... More

Our first visit to this village pub and we were not disappointed. Pleasant restaurant area and good efficient service. Meals were tasty and fairly priced. Only slight niggle was the pate starter - good portion of pate but with only one small piece of toast. I asked for another piece which was provided without problem only to find I'd been... More

On arrival it was clear that every single table was booked for lunch and there was no where that myself and 3 friends could sit for a drink. We were directed to a sofa by the pool table and when we moved a chair so that we were not in a single row a member of staff told us to... More

Lovely local pub with great restaurant food. Good menu with some interesting dishes that tasted delicious. I had venison casserole and my husband enjoyed calfs liver. Very good atmosphere and service. Home cooked food that was delicious.

My wife and I visited this Thursday lunchtime. We were made to feel really welcome. The decor is lovely, still with a country pub feel but very stylish. We chose the prawn sandwich and a ploughmans, both delicious. Very reasonably priced including the drinks. We are looking forward to our return visit to try their evening menu.

The pub has never been so good. Warm, friendly,and the food was wonderful. I have not seen this pub so alive for years. Good luck to the owners you deserve to succeed. Jeanette and Chris Wright. Longburton.

A group of friends went for a relaxing evening meal having not been to this pub for several years. We had heard good things about it and we were not disappointed. We had excellent meals with a good choice including some dishes often not seen anymore like liver and mash. The service was efficient without being overbearing. We were given... More
