Popped in here with my boyfriend spontaneously and were lucky to get a table as it was very booked up! It's a gorgeous gastropub with lovely decoration and vibe. The staff are very attentive and we were well looked after. My boyfriend had the chicken burger and really enjoyed it. I had the beef burger which was nice, but a... More

Had lunch here today & found the venue was much more restaurant than pub. There were plenty of parking spaces at this particular branch (part of a chain) Lunch was good. I had steak & kidney pudding with chips & vegetables. Afterwards I had a dessert which I must admit wasn't very good. It was also a very small portion.... More

On our most recent visit we were there for lunch to celebrate a family birthday. A good varied menu with lots of choices. The staff are very friendly and the service is very good. At the end of our meal they were starting to serve the afternoon tea which looked excellent. We will definitely make another visit to try this.

Nice pub, pleasant and helpful staff and the food is perfectly good but there's nothing exceptional about the place. The decor and cleanliness probably put it a notch above the standard pub with food but if it ever had aspirations to be in the gastro league it's long since moved on. Frequented mainly by the well heeled of Cheam it... More

Went out with the girlfriends family for a Christmas meal, fantastic food for all courses and everyone was very happy. Christmas meals cooked to perfection, so much so that it felt like home. Good environment and catered well for children. I would advise it.

Went to dinner with our son, girlfriend and her parents. It was a very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere with a menu that had plenty of choice boasting fresh ingredients. Lovely evening - would thoroughly recommend. Parking is a little challenging but mainly due to its popularity more than anything - don't let that put you off, well worth it!

We have been here a number of times with friends and family. The staff are extremely polite and helpful and always smiling! As always we were welcomed warmly and some of staff recognise us and go out their way to come over and say hello, makes one feel welcome. The food is nice and well presented, always a good bottle...

Went for Dinner with partner and 4 visitors. Staff were very welcoming and attentive (although our waitress did seem to shout at us rather than talk - and we really are not that old a group to be deaf !) Food all arrived promptly -- without being rushed. Terrine was very tasty but calamari was not thought to be great... More
