Found this place whilst driving back home from nearby Canons Ashby one Sunday afternoon. Hadn't booked but seated no problem. Food was lovely and tasty - had black pudding fritters, and roast lamb. Service was attentive and friendly.

We found this place by accident, and were pleasantly surprised! Great local ales, lots of home cooked, locally produced food, great friendly service. The lady who runs it was very friendly & attentive, and explained that the meat comes from their own farm!
