“Better than expected”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Lovely ambience, busy in a very pleasant way. The staff were exceptionally attentive and helpful.
The food was perfect in every way - choice was just about right - not too extensive. Known for locally sourced games as well as the usual choices. If there was a critiscm it would be the lack of choice of vegetables but overall, good quality food cooked to a high standard and very well presented. All was better than usual, one in our party said it was the best meal he had ever eaten - praise indeed!! Brilliant beer and good wine too - an added bonus.

We would definately return and would also have no hesitation in recommending
A welcome change from the normal pub/local restuarant choices and refreshing to be served by smiley helpful people

“venture in to the unknown”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

While staying on a narrow boat with friends we found this pub a short drive from foxton. From first entering we knew this would not be easy. A youth behind the bar directed us to a table while talking to "wayne" or "tracy" on his mobile. again no mention of would you like drinks from the bar. food was ordered when we were asked to move tables as the one we were seated was "booked" We found our next table and the food arrived the steak was good but on the small size all the other meals looked ok as pub food go's but for a restaurant very poor. the sweets were much the same. the bill for 4 of us with a drink each was £130. maybe this was to pay for the "youths" phone bill as he was still on it 90 minutes later. there wont be a next visit as the ladys visited the toilet and had to ask for soap/toilet paper.

“Mother's Day Treat”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here on Mother's Day.

For a set menu the choice was unbelievable. Every dish was perfect and so tasty. The freshly baked sourdough bread was so good - could've eaten more but had to leave room for the three courses to come!

I cannot fault this restaurant - excellent service and great staff. One in particular (sorry didn't catch a name) made our little boy feel special - remembered his name and used it.

Looking forward to the next visit.
