Very good food and lovely service, made to feel very welcome and a relaxed atmosphere, had Hake with asparagus which was really fresh and beautifully presented and sticky toffee pudding for desert which was delicious, nothing was too much trouble and despite it being a very busy and hot day all the staff were smiling, a lovely evening out.

What a treat, this pub. The new owner and manager have done a fantastic job here. The food is very good, staff is friendly and most nights it is fully booked. Do make reservations. Whatever we had, it was wonderful and the warm chocolate fudge cake with cream is the best desert ever!

While visiting from Holland we rented a cottage in Blockley and went there twice, Saturday met friends for dinner and Thursday just the two of us.

We chose a Thursday night which is steak night. Chose rib eye or sirloin, then which type of chip or potato. Which type or veg or salad, which type of side dish and then which sauce. All delicious.

Very friendly and prompt service. Delicious food. Had the best calves liver ever. Cooked to perfection, melted in my mouth. Rib ribeye steak great, whitebait crunchy and fresh. Well done Chef. Delightful village. Will definitely be visiting again.

A relaxed place to eat with fresh, light decor. Small but varied menu, Food was tasty, I had the salmon one night, and the mussels the next. Service was cheerful and attentive.

Had dinner here. We both had steak very nice. A little pricey but you do get what you pay for. Quite small better to book in advance
