I've been here twice, once with the family and once with my husband and both times were excellent, it's a nice relaxed environment but with brilliant food!

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, excellent service and exceptional food. We were so impressed we changed our plans for later this week (visiting the area on holiday) for a return visit. Thank you.

The restaurant has an open-air seating area over-looking the fields. The Pimm's is full of fresh fruits. The mussels are very very fresh and tender. The dry aged sirloin is very soft. Lovely lovely Sunday lunch.

We ate off the A La Carte menu and it did not disappoint. Both food and wine were delicious. The staff were extremely helpful and would definitley return.

We'd been meaning to visit The Pony and Trap for some time and it was worth the effort. A nice balance of pub and restaurant atmosphere with down to earth, friendly staff and, of course, excellent food. There were some really lovely combinations of flavours...More
