Lovey country pub in Upshire Essex. Food is excellent but beware the portions are large so I don't think a started is needed. Very good value for money although not ultra cheap. Would highly recommend

A Sunday lunch with 4 friends today. Our first visit although the 2 other couples were regulars. All of us enjoyed plentiful amounts of excellent roast beef,turkey and other mixed meats preceded by Mushroom Soup and Whitebait. The Roast potatoes were delicious and did justice to a very satisfying lunch. The pub was packed out but service maintained the high... More

Went here on Sunday 29th May. Food was excellent. Only had room when we booked in the bar, but considering it wasn't a "drinkers pub" on a Sunday lunchtime the atmosphere was great, the place was full and the staff although very busy always had a smile on their face. Couldn't fault the food at all, I had a medium... More

Just passing and decided to go in for lunch. Great food, friendly service, told they have regular guest beers. Had the cod and chips - beautiful fish. Very enjoyable lunch.

We called in for lunch en-route from Romford to Towcester, after reading great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were certainly not disappointed once past the somewhat unprepossessing exterior as the welcome, the menu and the general atmosphere were what we were hoping to see. The menu offers a wide choice of freshly prepared dishes to cater for fish, meat or... More

The bar staff and very helpful and friendly, there always seems to be a guest beer, dogs are welcome in the bar area ( not restaurant ). Lovely food in the restaraunt too. Pleasant and decent size beer garden for the sunny days... More

Cannot understand the great reviews on Tripadvisor as the food was pretty average. Dined here with friends. The breaded prawns were ok---certainly brought in and not home made. The biggest disappointment was my main course---the mixed grill which was very poor despite costing a whopping £22.95. The portion was huge but the quality was not that good. I can forgive... More
