We had a lovely meal here. Excellent food and lovely atmosphere and the best Banoffee Sundae anywhere. Nice friendly staff too. Advised to book in advance as looks pretty popular.

This was our first time here. We had booked a table inside for the 6 of us but decided to sit outside as the weather was lovely, this was no trouble to the staff, they brought our drinks and menus to us promptly with smiles all around.

The menu was really good with lots to choose from, I had the twice baked cheese souffle which was excellent followed by the lambs liver, again this was very good. The only criticism was that my husband and one of the others in our party were disappointed with the portion size of the fresh crab starter, it was tasty but unfortunately at £11 was way overpriced for the amount served.

We will definitely visit again.

We decided to stay here as opposed to Barnsley House as we were on a house-hunting trip and not a proper jolly. The Village Pub was lovely. Very good room (No. 3) with comfy beds, great bathroom, but no view, suited us fine. Watch the step on the way in! The restaurant in the pub itself was delightful. We went down a little earlier than our booking time to have a drink and were shown to our table in the bar, complete with two very comfortable armchairs. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We were advised that due to a problem in the kitchen if we wanted cooked breakfasts In the morning we should go across the road to Barnsley House, which we did. Back to dinner, we shared a calamari to start and then had the slow roast pork belly. Both were delicious, especially the calamari. This really is an exceptional restaurant. Breakfast at Barnsley House was also extremely nice, again with friendly and efficient staff, and it gave us a chance to stroll around the gardens. We would definitely stay at The Village Pub again (although a glimpse of the Secret Garden room at Barnsley House might be tempting!!!).

Strange how this place is not higher up the list. Lovely situation and very well presented inside and out. Great food, great service and an overall very pleasant experience.
