We were meeting up with friends in this village and were spoilt for choice of where to go and eat. We decided on this pub, and were certainly happy with our choice!
Apparently the pub has been re furbished and opened again a few months ago. The bar and eating areas were well decorated, clean and very comfortable. We were given a warm welcome and advised about the menu for the evening.
The men were pleased as Timothy Taylor beer was a guest beer!
The menu offered a good choice. Two opted for duck breast, one for chicken breast and one for fillet of sea bass, I also decided to have the tomato and mint salad with the fish, which was delicious and highly recommend. The meal was beautifully presented and we were all very impressed with the food.
We shared two home made desserts, vanilla creme brulee and lime, honey and ginger cheese cake! Both were delicious!
The quality of the food was high, the chef very obviously enjoys food and has a pride in his cooking. The service was excellent.
We did notice that Tuesdays are home made pie and a glass of wine night for a very reasonable price, so next time we will be going on a Tuesday!
Recommend this pub highly.
