Serving food for first time in a year with new chef. 1st class meal with fabulous fresh ingredients. This place will be back on the dining map again very quickly.

Went on the same day as other reviewer "westayeverywhere",they was sat on the table behind us, service very slow, food ok nothing great to shout about, i'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they was not prepared for us or something had gone wrong in the kitchen, simply because the time factor was annoyingly slow..........still nice little pub...

My wife and I visited this place a month or so ago having a table for two. Everything was perfect on that occasion so we thought we would take for family back for a chill out just before Christmas oh how things change. We booked the table for 8 but when we arrive the table had only been set for... More

I can only assume that the Groupon deals (another one today) are an understandable attempt to drum up further custom. Perhaps because it worked, I’m afraid yesterday’s Sunday lunch fell short for us. I do understand how difficult pub catering is, having had some experience. It wasn’t so popular then (the 1970s) but we didn’t have the drink driving or... More

Had looked the pub up and were looking forward to a Sunday Lunch Very disappointed, room we were in was cold and unable to move to other bar as tables reserved despite being empty!!

Not having visited before, we used a Groupon voucher to try out the food on offer, especially the Gluten and Dairy free options. Quaint little hostelry with lots of history, but modern tables and comfortable chairs in the dining room. Sue saw us to our reserved table and brought our drinks. The voucher intimidated a starter and main course so... More

My partner booked a groupon deal at this establishment. We were quite looking forward to a 'good old Sunday roast', unfortunately this is not what we got. The starter of asparagus, bacon, cheese on cous cous base, was very hot and looked interesting. However the taste was not there and was extremely bland. The main arrived, I had the pork,... More

We visited last Saturday and had the three course lunch, a bargain at £10.95. Really interesting starter (prosciutto, fig and halloumi salad), very tasty main courses (gammon pie, cottage pie) with good chips, delicious puds (raspberry Eton mess, choc chip bread and butter pudding). Good real ale (Harvest Pale my favourite). Warm welcome, friendly service. Can't fault it.

We visited for the 3-course lunch, and found the food freshly-cooked (yes, home-made chips) and to a good, unpretentious standard. Very good value for money, and a great antidote to the chain eateries nearer home. The three real ales available were very good. A note for the summer: the village cricket pitch is immediately behind the pub, so a good... More
