The food is top notch and superb VFM, the surroundings are relaxing and the atmosphere friendly. The waitress seemed a tad nervous, but it was her first day so we'll let her off and despite her coffee machine anxiety, she did make an excellent Latte after all! Only down points were that the menus were a bit on the grubby... More

Thank you very much for your review, I am really pleased that you enjoyed your meal here with us and that your waitress did such a good job looking after you. Indeed you are correct in saying a few things were not available from the Menu, and that was because at the time our new head chef was just starting... More

Great pub situated on the village green in the peaceful, very attractive village of Winchmore Hill. We stayed one night in a large double room over the main bar and really enjoyed the experience. The decoration could have done with a bit of retouching in places but it was well appointed and the bed was extremely comfortable. Once the pub... More

We read the reviews on trip advisor and HAD to come here for Sunday lunch. The services was SO slow! We waited almost half an hour for our baked camembert and then over an hour for the roast beef. The starter was amazing but the beef average. Overall disappointed.

We booked a table for my dad's Birthday after reading such positive reviews, we were not disappointed. The food was fantastic and very reasonably priced, to put this into context my partner ordered the steak and commented it was the best he had ever had at a restaurant, even better then steak restaurants in London! We all throughly enjoyed the... More

We booked an early evening table for 16 of us at short notice and they were very accommodating. We had children with us and they were given a child's menu. Some people only wanted a light meal or a sharing platter. Others of us had two course meals, but they seemed happy to take our orders whatever we chose. The... More

We only stopped for a snack lunch and found the ambiance most pleasant and enjoyed a very tasty panini and a glass of well chilled Pinot Rose

We visited here for an evening meal, lovely area and nice gardens to sit outside. Restaurant is modern and nicely furnished. My friends had been previously and told me the service was slow as there were only 2 members of staff serving, but the food was good, so we were prepared for slow service. When we arrived the bar was... More
