This pub in the pretty village of Calverton changed hands late last autumn, and I hope it will soon become known as we had a very good lunch here today. We all had the same, which was good quality seabass, with large prawns and scallops, in a tomato/chilli sauce, fresh veg, and a choice of new potatoes, crispy chips with...

The pub food in Stony is generally disappointing, Crown has the best food in the Village, but just outside the village you will find this pub. Good home cooked pub grub, most of the time. Very nice in summer with room for kids to play, big sunny beer garden, with nice views of the surrounding fields.

A lovely Sunday lunch started with prawn cocktails and hot smoked mackerel. Then three portions of steak and ale pie and one lasagna. Large portions and veg cooked perfectly. Three of them had puddings including ginger sponge and custard and apple pie. Everyone full and content. Will come back again.

11 of us went for our Christmas Lunch. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Even Christmas Crackers were provided. I had the smoked salmon, Roast Turkey and poached pear. It is an 18th Century Pub with plenty of parking

We have passed this restaurant for years and have never been in. We took the plunge last night and had a very good meal. The staff are very friendly and efficient and the food was good. There are open fires and a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend for a mid range meal. We used Tesco vouchers for the whole meal...

Beautiful country pub in an pretty location. The food was fabulous beef cooked to perfection and the steak and ale pie wowed my 10 year old daughter and partner. The landlords will and Mandy provide excellent service and our very clean plates spoke for the food. Kids loved the out door play area and befriending the cows in the field...

It's been a while since we visited this pub but we were not disappointed with the food. The chicken and leek pie was delicious and the pork hock was lovely. Portions are really good and the veg is beautifully cooked. For dessert the ginger sponge and custard is well worth a try. The service was friendly and attentive. Overall this...
