Visited last night for Valentines. A lovely tranquil leisurely evening, with no feeling of being hurried along. The food was great: beef croquettes, goats cheese terrine, duck, fish pie, peach melba, cheese board and a stunning glass of port! The staff are helpful and attentive...More

Five of us booked in for an evening meal on cold Sunday evening. The menu has changed since our last visit. What, no steak? The fish and chips were pronounced excellent, as was the substantial sausage and mash. My lamb stew was tasty, if a...More

We visited on New Year’s Day, at lunchtime. It was good too see that the restaurant was open, however the menu wasn’t the one on the website. The menu served was reduced and looked to be aimed at a late breakfast crowd. Nice food however,...More

The lunch was quite nice except for the roast potatoes that were hard. The staff were very nice, and helpful. The pub itself was very cosy.

We'd heard great things about this pub. We had lunch on Saturday; a wild boar burger and a beef burger which were good, but not outstanding. We had coffee afterwards, which tasted 'muddy'. Service was good and staff were friendly - I agree with another...More
