After a long walk stopped here for dinner. Had ploughman's (beautiful cheeses) fishcakes (husband said best he has ever had) and sausage & mash. All very good quality & freshly made. Little bit pricey for food we had would be only criticism, but quality was superb so happy to pay that bit more. Would return.

My wife and I have had lunch here a few times both on a Sunday and during the week. The food served is quite delicious and is clearly freshly prepared as if home cooked. The roast potatoes are real roasties, no quick fried rubbish! It is truly a very friendly place, also welcoming dogs inside which is a real bonus... More

Delighted to find this pub has reopened following a fire. I had heard it was back uyp and running so went there with a small walking group yesterday for lunch. Delighted to see Isobal and her husband back in control and producing the goods once more. There is a small menu but don't let that fool you as portion sizes... More

We had been to this pub a few years ago and it was busy and good. This visit it was nearly empty and awful. The barman was nice enough but knew less than nothing about his wine. The Sunday roast was awful and probably microwaved and the Yorkshire pudding was as flat as a pancake. The service was very slow.... More

We went for lunch midweek in May, when the place was quiet. Very good food and welcoming atmosphere. The pub is well situated, close to the Test Way; and we'd probably not go for a restaurant style meal; but excellent and unpretentious pub grub.

After talking to the staff during my visit. I discovered that the LANDLADY was a lovely young women and it was refreshing to see young people all working together and supporting their boss, it is remarkable how the girl does it! Runs the kitchen, manages the bar as well as taking on everything else that goes along with her pub!... More
