All reviews sunday roast brisket hake pot roast function room burns night super sunday country pub very generous portions friday evening third visit warm welcome visited this pub trimmings desert miles
This country pub is real hidden gem, full of character and an extremely warm welcome. (Our waitress was absolutely lovely and a real credit to the place)
Think huge open fireplaces and low wooden beams, a quintessentially old English pub with an impressive menu.
We...were lucky enough to be seated in front of the fire with a prime view of the lovely pine Christmas tree. At no point were we rushed - the food came at a leisurely pace and we enjoyed the opportunity to soak up the festive atmosphere and relax. Pork belly to start was lovely, and the duck confit and fish and chips were fabulous!
There was so much on the menu we fancied trying that we can’t wait to go back for our next meal!More
Staying in the area for the weekend and booked for Sunday lunch well in advance. Really warm welcome in safe and cosy surroundings. Staff were great, meals were fantastic and the sticky toffee pudding is to die for!
Just had another lovely Sunday roast. We had the beef rump, lovely and pink, the ladies had the veggie nut roast and squash risotto which went down great. All delicious. The staff are all very helpful and super friendly, a minor mix up over desert...was sorted immediately, without hesitation.More
Wonderful Sunday dinner. My husband had pork belly starter I had the mackerel pate. Both dishes very tasty. My husband then had roast lamb I had the beef brisket. Absolutely delicious we really could not fault it very generous portions and excellent value for money....Very good range of wines, beers and ales. We will definitely return. ThankyouMore
I went with my mum, food was amazing! I had two wraps because I couldn’t decide between the two (lol). Staff were extremely polite, the place was very clean and well spaced out. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience.
During these troubled times recognition for an enjoyable experience can only be beneficial to the proprietors and staff of that particular establishment , thus this review .
After so much time not being able to dine out due to government restrictions our first meal had...to be The Haywain, as we used this place on many occasions in the past with satisfaction .
We didn't really know what to expect but all our concerns were put to rest on entering. Hand sanitizer at entrance and a one way system in operation. Shown to our table which had be individually shielded. Waitress service only. A personal details form had to be filled in ,phone , e-mail address , time of entering , time of departure. The amount of tables had been dramatically been trimmed down in the restaurant side but the function hall was in use if needed.
Nice to see some recognizable faces back to work that we knew from before the virus struck. Plus the new young lady who served us , only her second day and had the makings of a good waitress , obliging , courteous and efficient.
Starters , main and desert were enjoyable . Slow cooked brisket with all the trimmings was lovely. Option of one , two or three courses. Nice to see the correct glasses being used to match the drinks . So all in all an enjoyable experience . We will definitely return and hope the business picks up, as this place deserves success for all the hard work they put in.More
This was our first meal out since lockdown! It did not disappoint. The staff were lovely as usual and the COVID set up was very well organised and professional.
The food was so delicious, I had the vegan burger and my partner had the buttermilk...fried chicken.
I can also recommend their Sunday Roast.
Such a lovely placeMore
