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.

I have been aware of this for some time but not had the opportunity. So glad to have made it. Took my inlaws and we had a superb meal. The service was top-rate and the food was wonderful. So delighted to have made it there at last. Will return.

We walked for several miles tho have lunch here and arrived agreed after 2 o'clock but well before the end of service (2:30) according to the web site. When we equired about lunch we were told chefs gone home and they could not even provide a sandwich. A poor pint of undrinkable bitter and 1/2 larger was £8...make up your... More

Sorry to hear that you didn't get to enjoy lunch with us. Generally 95% of our customers come between 12.30 and 1.30 so at around 2pm the chefs will start to clear down and go home ( probably about 2.15) UNLESS someone has booked. I admit the website is unclear on that so I have amended it. We don't like... More

This was my second visit and I wasn't disappointed. We chose a goats cheese salad which was a generous portion and tasty. For mains I had sea bass which was absolutely delicious and my husband had a burger which again was nicely presented and well cooked. If you are looking for friendly efficient service, lovely surroundings and well cooked food... More

We turned up at the tail end of lunch service on a Saturday and, instead of turning us away, we were offered a reduced menu we could have there and then; even though the chef was due his / her break. We both plumped for the fish and chips which were delicious - the best I have had in years!!!!... More

Had lunch with colleagues. Phoned our order through in advance and asked for food to be ready promptly. It duly arrived almost as soon as we set foot through the door! Pleasant service. Food was fairly standard pub fare but nicely presented.

Read some lovely reviews about this place and being we were meeting our Godson for his birthday half way from where they live, we decided to book. Great location opposite a green, with outside seating area and a lovely conservatory restaurant. Really friendly personnel, but service was extremely slow. We ordered 1 roast lamb (which for me was well undercooked... More
