Went on a Tuesday night. Friendly staff and nice cosy atmosphere. Food was all great, good varied choice and plenty of gluten free options. Had sharing baked Camembert, rump steak and sausages which all tasted lovely. Reasonably priced. Would go back.

Very welcoming and friendly staff with great sense of humour. Food well cooked and presented. Great meat dishes which we had had in the past, but wonderful vegetarian curry too. Ribeye particularly good. We felt totally accommodated by both staff and food!!

You need to exit for the M4/Chievely Services and then take the road to Newbury (not back on to the A34) and it will be on your left after about 1 mile.
