Went here before visiting Henry Moore Foundation house and garden. The pub is owned by them as well... Village very attractive and pub looks the piece but for the prices they charge you would expect table service for food. I had to wait a long time at the bar to place food and drink order. Their menu stipulates main course and dessert for one price or three courses for another. I asked if it was possible to have a starter and main but this was not allowed, I had to have either main and dessert or three courses... most bizarre I thought. Ended up just having a main in the end which was 'dressed crab'. Well all that I can think is that is was 'undressed' from the cellophane wrapping these crabs come ready prepared in. The slice of lemon addition was like something you get in a gin and tonic, and the only other dressing was at the side of the mixed leaf salad. It also came with roast potatoes. Pretty boring and not particularly flavoursome. For vegetarians the choice was also pretty poor, with a cheese and tomato starter (if you decided to go off the wierd menu restrictions) and then a main course option of yes a goats cheese and tomato quiche...very inspiring.
So pretty poor overall unfortunately and I would recommend you take a picnic and eat it on the green. Shame as it is in a lovely location and the Henry Moore Foundation itself is a fantastic visit even if you are not an expert on his work. Delightful house tour and fabulous gardens to wander in.
