Friends had booked a meal for us here on Thursday evening, and though we'd travelled through floodwater in several villages along the way, we were still quite surprised to find we were the only ones in the restaurant. However, this didn't matter one bit! What a superb meal!
Everything we chose was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The starters were mouthwatering and it was an almost impossible choice, but finally I decided on the Mediterranean vegetables with goats cheese and also had a mouthful of my partner’s salmon gateau – exquisite. So glad I could try both!
I followed this with a fabulous medium-rare rib-eye steak, succulent and tender, which I ordered with triple-cooked chips and kale. In fact, three of us ordered the steak whilst my friend had the salmon. I then shared a dessert of the saffron-poached pear with roasted plum ice cream and it was divine.
Very fair prices for such good quality food, and the service was faultless too, plus of course, the building itself is simply beautiful.
We will be recommending this pub to all our friends and suggest you do the same. We can’t wait to go back again!
