Go there and eat and drink something you will be amazed.. do not focus on the interior of the bar/ restaurant. Because the food is amazing, the staff really friendly. Just imagine yourself 150 years ago.

Once a month, the country pub's chef, Jasper, unleashes his skill and flare to produce amazing 5 course fine dining dinners. Day to day food is superb at the pub, but the fine dining evenings are in another class. The most recent one I attended...More
