Celebrated my son's 21st birthday, wanted a great meal in good surroundings, close to home. It was a perfect evening, we only had one course but all our meals were delicious as was the wine and the service was excellent.

A typical menu is on their web site but it changes regularly. This is more gastro than pub grub as it seems that everything is made in house- homemade- even the puddings. Hence prices to match. Car park generous and ambiance typical Olde Worlde pub...More
