As a large group during a busy sunday lunch time, you sometimes worry that you'll be forgotten in the rush of the restaurant. Needless to say, all waitresses that dealt with us were pleasant, helpful and always checking on us to ensure we had everyrhif (but not to that annoying, leave us alone level!). Food was delicious with some having... More

Visited 2/1/2017 after a walk around the surrounding countryside. Car park is a little small, but inside is much bigger! All the staff were very helpful and friendly, we had to wait 10 minutes for a table which was not a problem. The food did take a while to come out (upwards of 30 minutes), but I have put that...

This pub is situated in the small village of penhurst on a main road and near the station. The building looks like it has had an extension or two but inside the atmosphere is still small pub and lovely. The menu offers variety and is quite good, we also found the service excellent. Our food was nicely presented and tasty.... More

Hello Julia, I would first like to apologise, the idea of someone coming here on Christmas Day and going home disappointed does not sit well with me. I would really like for you to give us a call, or an email with a number to get you on as I would really like to discuss with you in person. I... More

They tend to be quite large former pubs either with plenty of character and then they add some! book shelves, old furniture etc. The menus are gastropub fayre and pretty good. Now to the two things that mark this one out. We... More

We met friends at the pub the week before Christmas. It was a Sunday lunch meeting so the pub was very full but there was a lovely "buzz" Inside and despite the number of diners, there's plenty of room and you don't feel cramped. However, the same can't be said of the car park which can't cope when the pub... More
