I left a review a few years ago when it was previously owned, and it wasn't very good. Under new ownership, it's ratings have gone up, and is well regarded. I see after 3 years however their website isn't finished, and now on 3 occasions we've been there on a Saturday lunchtime to suss it out. The first time, although the sign said it was open, the door was locked, so that didn't work. The next two times, again at around 1.30 on Saturdays, we've visited but the place is deserted. We've gone in, shouted "hello", walked around and given up. There was someone working in the garden last week, but when we said hello to her she just ignored us anyway.
Even though we only live in the next village (Badwell Ash) I think we won't bother driving up the pothole ridden drive and over the dodgy cattle grid to get there only to find the place deserted. I can only wonder how the current owners expect to make a go of the place though.
Obviously can't comment on the food or wine, or value for money, but the ambiance is well, empty!
