“Gorgeous beer garden!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Stopped here for lunch by chance after being diverted from the a303 and very glad we did. Gorgeous little place with a beautiful garden tucked away at the back, full of flowers and butterflies with tables and chairs to dine al fresco in the sunshine. A little pricey we thought but the food was lovely posh pub food worth paying extra for. No children's menu but half portions were available for kiddies. Very welcoming, helpful staff. If we were passing through we would definitely stop here again.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Had a really lovely lunch on August 1st, how lovely to have fish cooked fresh and without being covered in batter or breadcrumbs no chips just perfectly cooked vegetables., lovely starters I had the mixed seafood, my husband mackerel pâté, no room I'm afraid for desert, just a lovely cup of coffee, a good welcome maybe a little expensive but then you have to pay for quality.

We stopped for lunch on a spur of the moment decision, and we are glad we did.
A very nice comfortable experience, good food well presented and served by a professional and customer orientated group of staff. Will certainly return.
EXCELLENT.

“Sunday lunch with style”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Visited for sunday lunch with partner and inlaws.

Have to say the standard was very good and the vegetables were as good as I have ever tasted.

All round good food and service. The staff were attentive and informed. Excellent !

Price is maybe a little upper end for Sunday lunch, but still worth spending for the standard.
