We booked a table back on July 12th for this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday in early December and we were not disappointed. The table was booked later than we would have chosen at 9:30pm but we had a nice drink in a nearby pub and were shown to a cozy table right on time. As I am quite tall I had to watch my head on the beams but it is a very nice atmosphere inside with 14 tables of various shapes and sizes. This is not a pub anymore it is definitely a small restaurant so it should be judged as such. The bar area is far too small to be used like a pub. My wife had one of the speciality gins (I was disappointed that other cocktails were not on offer) while I had a pint of beer. We loved the whitebait in newspaper nibbles while we looked at the menu and the home made bread was just perfect. For starters my wife had the delicious parfait with brioche and I had the perfectly seasoned crispy pigs head. For mains my wife chose the Pork medley while I went for the slow cooked duck which won the 2010 Great British menu main course for the owner Tom Kerridge. We finished with souffle and panna cotta feeling very full but very happy. The price was around 150 including a nice bottle of wine which is what I expect from a restaurant of this standard and I can only commend the lovely staff on their service.
