We held our Christmas party here last night, there were several other parties going on as well. Really nice place, warm and welcoming staff. Excellent choice of draught beers. Now for the meal itself - To drink a very good Chardonnay. To eat - Parfait (Pate) to start, then traditional Turkey dinner with all the trimmings, followed by Christmas pudding served with White sauce and Christmas pudding Ice cream. All in all, it was one of the nicest Christmas menus I've eaten in a long time. I enjoyed it so much, I shall probably take my wife there to try the Christmas menu.

Fantastic food -best saddle of venison ever, my vegi wife loved it too - the gnotchi was the best she has eaten outside Italy. Our friends loved the authentic atmosphere and can't wait to stay with us again so we can all dine here again. The attentive staff deserve a special mention too as they were all very good and pitched the service perfectly.

Andy and I turned up cold and wet 75miles into a 200mile days cycle ride, and were immediately made welcome. An absolutely massive thank you is owed to the staff for their hospitality.

The food was great - we had sandwiches and soup which was offered despite us being slightly early for lunch.

Thank you again,

Hal and Andy

Our third visit to the recently reopened inn for Sunday lunch the previous two occasions had been very good hence our third visit this time not as a couple but with friends - what a disappointment. We all had beef - one small slice each, which not being big eaters we still considered to be a child's portion - previously three larger slices each. The meat contained inedible gristle reducing the amount further. Previously there had been three vegetables plus potatoes this time a smaller portion of vegetables, no potatoes. Thoroughly disappointing. I did complain three times - the waitress who waited table, the waitress to whom we paid the bill in full and finally the manager - each time a stock answer was given "we will speak to chef". We were not even offered a complimentary cup of coffee merely told when we came back hopefully it would be better - NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Incidentally it was a 30+ mile trip to the Brigand for us and we returned home still hungry! Wouldn't risk it again.
