This repeat visit to Martins Pond was, for me, the best yet. The range and quality of the starters and main course was exceptional. The quality of service matches the food. If I lived closer I would be there much more.

I had my 70th birthday celebration lunch at Martins Pond on Thursday 15th September and couldn't rate it highly enough. The food and service were exceptionally good and the prices were very reasonable. We had the exclusive use of the Garden Room for 27 of us. Fortunately the weather was also very good which meant that we could use the... More

I love this restaurant. Staff. Service fab. Food to die for. My sea bass meal was sublime and I always keep my fingers crossed that this dish will not be remonved from the menu on a whim ! I've had it 4 times now and have NEVER been disappointed. No wonder this pub won their award. Well done you !

Meal well presented,and interesting variation on standard grub. Beer , red Squirrel, a welcome change. Ambience OK, but the flashing light rather distracting.( bulb obviously failing)

Chanced upon this pub one late sunny afternoon. Situated opposite a village green with pond. Sat in the pretty little garden. Friendly staff served us tasty starters and brought treats for the dogs – a nice touch (they are apparently allowed in the bar too). Menu looks good, as does the restaurant area, so will be returning to sample a... More

First time coming here but Where to start? It started well. Got seated and gave drinks order. That's when things went down hill. Each drink we ordered was served up one at a time?! Mine was last to come .... About 5-10 mins after the last one had been brought to the table. Bit weird but let it go. Ordered... More

We've only bar-snacked in here up until now but the menu looks enticing. There is an extensive range of beers from the local Red Squirrel brewery which are worth exploring.
