“Went in for a cuppa and stayed for Lunch”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

I found the restaurant by accident on a day out. Since then I have become a regular visitor and have always found the Owner/Manageress to be friendly and her staff always well groomed and helpful. The food follows this - the 'Full English' is superb and the 'Specials' make dining an absolute treat.
I have held dinners for my associates here [partys of 25] and they laid on special menus for me together with service to 'Silver' standards.
The food may seem a little on the pricey side but I am always prepared to pay for excellence. Whether it's a walk in the countryside and cream tea or a special occasion I would fully recommend this establishment.

“Good size portions+ Friendly service”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Arrived at lunchtime to a nicely decorated restaurant, good choice of daily specials, sensibly priced wine list and loads of diners.We were served quickly by friendly waitresses, and the vegetables and the mains were perfectly cooked.
Good size portions ,so no room for dessert.Would definitely eat there again.

“Traditional, home-made but a bit pricey for what it is.”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

I had steak and kidney pie, which was good. Vegetables a bit overcooked for my taste. My wife was very disappointed with her duck, which was very hard and overcooked. The staff were nice but it irritated me a little that they couldn't be bothered to bring the credit card machine to the table, as is usual practice in restuarants.

Last two roasts here have been awful, standards have dropped drastically. Looks like corners have been cut. Not as busy as usual, says it all

“Amazing afternoon Tea”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

Great place to stop for a bite to eat, if its hot and sunny the garden is great place to cool down! Service is faultless and the afternoon tea was very good, big enough for 2 to share! The cakes are out of this world!
Can be very very busy, but the service and food quality is not impaired in anyway! Well worth a visit!
