You have to know where this pub is to find it. You go down a small lane and notice the lovely pub on one side and a spectacular view on the other - a valley with lakes . There is a large car park and today as it was sunny a small tent on the lawn serving barbecue to picnickers outside
The lawn was packed as was the seating outside the pub itself - despite it being 5 p.m. on a Sunday
The barbecue looked inviting but we had booked a table inside the pub.
The staff coped well with 10 people asking for a variety of drinks. There were a number of good casked ales on offer.
The menu is extensive with snacky items, a main menu and a children's menu. A large menu is suspicious but in this case the food was very good
Starters (including pate with apricot chutney, cod cheeks and crispy tofu.with various shredded vegetables) were well executed and tasty - especially the tofu which is so easy to get wrong
The mains were large helpings indeed and everyone struggled to finish them. Sausages were huge and 3 came with each helping. A beef teryaki salad looked wonderful and was on the whole very god but with a few chewy pieces of steak and too many peanuts. The fish cakes and the fish finger sandwiches were well received.
Some brave souls tried the puddings - passion fruit sorbet - much liked, as was the creme brulee and rhubarb crumble.
The general consensus was it was a very enjoyable meal and was reasonably priced
We sat outside enjoying the sunset with a last drink before departing
A very pleasant outing
