Four of us went for an evening meal using a Travelzoo offer.The establishment is a pleasantly modernised village pub.We travelled on country roads with heavy agricultural traffic and one route blocked by a lorry with it’s tractor in the soft verge.The car park was almost full and we entered via the well patronised bar under scrutiny by the assembled locals.
The restaurant is a tasteful extension looking on to the car park.
The hostess was welcoming ,friendly and efficient
The food was upper end pub food catering for all tastes.The pork starter,fish and chips ,,vegetarian options,curry, and jam roly poly were voted good The sole disappointment was the tempura prawn starter voted a non event and rather dry and characterless .The drinks menu was good and the coffee excellent.
With the heavy discount the meal was excellent value .Charged at full rates it would have rated above average for this type of eating place

Went for dinner last week hoping that finally we would find a pub in the area (closer than the Boat or Larder in Lichfield) that did something that little bit special - yippee success. The food was fantastic but the service was even better, nothing was too much trouble, the ambience was good and the menu offered something a little less ordinary and was executed beautifully. I was so impressed I recommended it to my Mom and Dad (never to be done lightly) and they went the next day and also loved it.

Looking forward to going again, finally somewhere close with that 'je ne sais quoi'

My partner and I met up with a family friend and his 3 year old son for lunch. From booking the table, to ordering our food and drinks, the staff could not have made us feel more welcome. The choice of food was excellent (we tried all three courses). For starters, we went for the halloumi fries and the salmon terrine. Delicious! For mains, I tried the chicken and chips, my friend ordered fish and chips. Simply delightful! the deserts were to die for too! Choc brownie with ice cream and I went for the crumble. All home cooked and really enjoyable.
I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Ambience and decor really tasteful and looking forward to a return visit very soon! Thank you.

Just had dinner for 4 on Saturday night and it was amazing, far beyond expectations. We all had the special board starters and then menu mains and the service and food was delicious and well presented. Service was very good too. Fully recommend and will return very soon.
