Based on the reviews below, we traveled all the way there from London, 2 Sunday's ago with some friends from the USA to give them the feel of a Sunday lunch at a typical English country pub. The village itself is picturesque, really quaint and pretty, lovely alleyways and fields. The drive was breath taking, however, the food at this pub was disappointing, contrary to what some described below, the food is nowhere near 'the Hands and flower' although i must admit the quality was pretty good and fresh, however, the choice of food on Sunday was restricted to 'roast beef, lamb or porc or fish and chips'...It would have been nice if they had choice of wild game, such as grouse, pheasant or duck..i chose the lamb and found it to be grisly and tough, hardly any garlic flavour and the gravy was not homemade by any means. i have had better roast elsewhere. However, i did try my husband's choice of beef and found it to be far better than the lamb. His meat was tender and tasted better...The dessert was nice but not wow!! i opted for the Eton mess, all fresh, at least the cream was fresh and not the horrid whipping cream. The service was good, the staff were very friendly, warm and hospitable. I cannot complain. My suggestion to them is to include wild game, chicken in their choice of roasts to render it less boring and monotonous. The lamb could be better, they could use the juices to make up the gravy rather than the horrid Bisto manufactured Bisto sauce and could have done with more herbs such as rosemary, fresh shallots and more fresh garlic etc..
The weekly menu looked more exciting than the restricted Sunday one and more promising. I can only judge from what experienced on Sunday with the restricted menu.
