My first impression was worried because the menu is so long but was amazed to find that the food was promptly delivered and clearly home made and with excellent tastes and plate display. Thoroughly recommend all the original starters. Subsequently discovered they have a brigade of some 8 pax and obviously a Head Chef who knows what he/she's doing. Beautiful... More

A group of 4 couples including myself went here for an evening meal on a weekend. The staff were lovely and the food was equally lovely. I highly recommend The Middle House in a quaint little village. Well worth a visit!

I've reviewed here before but with their consistently high standards and THE BEST carvery around, I feel I must write another. Staff are friendly and helpful, always chatty & polite. It's lovely that the proud owner calves the meats and has an active role in this busy beautiful restaurant / pub. This is mine & my partners weekly pleasure and... More

In the bar area, incredible fire place! Lamb liver is a delight. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Sadly we will never know how good the food is as the owners appear reluctant to offer access for wheelchair users even though there is the Equality Act and that portable ramps start from £40. Very disappointed in their attitude towards disabled customers.

We often eat here in the evening. Recently we had dinner with friends in the restaurant. The food is always fantastic and this time, if possible, it was even better. My duck was cooked to perfection and the selection of vegetables, which is always good, was superb. My sweet too, was heavenly - fig tart. On previous visits the desserts... More

We ate in the restaurant. Great service with a smile and plenty of advice when asked for. We started with the pate and duck spring rolls ----delicious! Then I had the belly of pork with real chips whilst my wife ate the venison dish. The chocolate ice cream was tasty. We drank a bottle of house malbec and had coffees... More

Have eaten here on many occasions and visited again the week before Christmas for the Christmas Fair menu 3 course lunch. We were a family of 4 and all meals ordered were fantastic. The meat was cooked to perfection and the vegetables accompanying the main meals were varied and plentiful. I had a vegetarian roasted root veg and chestnut pie... More

Went to the middle house a week before xmas for Sunday lunch, we hadn't booked and although it was quite full we found a table straight away. Had a very nice Sunday lunch, all cooked very well. The pub had a good atmosphere, staff were helpful and efficient. All in all a very pleasant place to have Sunday lunch.

Thank Davidffc
