Recently went for team lunch but was disappointed as usually much better food served. Were all served meagre portions, whereas in the past have usually been generous.Three of our soups were sent back as although tasty were lukewarm, unfortunately they weren't much hotter when they came back. They were served with one measly piece of sliced bread and hard butter.... More

Been coming to this pub for 10 year plus and have always been offered good service and a good meal at a reasonable price . Over the past 6 months I feel the price has increased and quality of food has gone down, the Service is good but I am very disappointed as we are now looking at alternative venues... More

Had a great meal and afternoon at the pub on a miserable wet Sunday. Food was lovely, staff really helpful and friendly - we had 4 kids with us who were really relaxed in the environment, brilliant afternoon, we will be back soon!

I only write a negative review if I have made the establishment aware beforehand, so they are aware. We came here for a late Sunday lunch after visiting Mottisfont House and were really hungry. I am watching my weight and therefore on a low fat diet. We chose a roast after checking that I could have a jacket potato rather... More

Visited on a Friday for lunch, nice friendly bar, but a little on the dark side,but it's quite an old pub so it's full of character. ordered our drinks and food, food took a little while to arrive, but it was presented beautifully and was piping hot and absolutely delicious, if I was being really picked the winter greens were...

I was lucky enough to visit this beautiful country pub with my parents for Saturday lunch. I'm a vegan and asked what they had on the menu, which was fortunately nothing - fortunately because they then asked me what I'd like and they'd make something for me. I didn't want to be a nuisance (it's the English in me) and... More

My boyfriend and I (we are an older couple) visited here for our first Valentine Dinner. We were seated in the bar area as the restaurant was busy (a table was booked previously). We both had the mushroom starter which was very good, followed by the lasagne and the salmon both good also and we finished with the trio of... More

Last Sunday we had lunch here at this welcoming country pub. Between the five of us we had a fish dish, veggie roast and a 3 meat monster roast. All agreed that the dishes were large portions and excellent along with good beer and wine.We will be back.

There were 6 of us for Sunday lunch. We had booked in advance but we arrived 25 mins early, nevertheless our table was available for us. There is a good selection of beers and the menu, though not extensive was varied and not just Sunday roasts. The main meals arrived in a reasonable time ( it was busy) and were... More

The nut roast had been recommended to my daughter and as we are both vegetarians we decided it give it a try. We were not disappointed! We enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch. The meat eaters in the family were also well catered for.
