Nice food and large back garden. Could do with more local ales and better parking. The building is very old and has a nice village charm about it. Perfect if you are visiting basing house.

Came here on the strength of reviews on trip advisor and it certainly did not disappoint! I started with the most incredible mushroom soup I have ever eaten. I never knew I could enjoy mushroom soup quite that much! They also served homemade rosemary bread with warm oil as an appetiser (which has lead to me looking into getting a... More

We visited for lunch and were treated to a fabulous roast dinner that was fairly priced, well presented and tasted delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the surroundings were clean and there were lots of little touches to make it even better. Some historic displays of items excavated in their gardens made for a little extra insight into... More

Went here on a whim with friends after good reports. I have to say it was fantastic. Super chilled wine, lovely garden and amazing food. Our waitresses were awesome. Funny, informative and friendly and just 2 of them to manage all diners. Great night thank you.

We chose this pub based on the reviews, expecting contemporary gastropub style food but it is more like a traditional run of the mill pub. I thought the menu was a little unadventurous but OK. The food was nice home cooked pub grub but not more than that. The roast dinner was huge! Nice quality beef and a good selection... More

I can't believe I hadn't eaten here before. They currently have a special on, which is actually 3 burger sliders in a brioche bun. Chargrilled chicken, pulled pork and a beef. All 3 are amazing. I also had the fish gujons as a starter, which I believe was Pollock. I have a massive appetite, but I swear I couldn't of... More
