Great country pub with a warm cosy feel to it. Excellent food. Great value too. Meals were all really good size. A really good choice of food on the menu .Staff were all very nice. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Even though they were extremely busy, everything came out in good time, well presented and nice and hot. Having not... More

We went to the Sarah Mansfield as a special date night. The Inn has a rustic charm with a homely feel ,excellent food and friendly attentive service . My wife had the prawn cocktail starter and she has raved about it to her friends. I recommend the Sarah Mansfield for an intimate meal or a larger family get together.

The Sarah Mansfield is a lovely old pub with a great bar area and some nice real ales on offer. We decided to have lunch here on a snowy cold Saturday. A welcoming landlady immediately lit a fire for us in the dining room. It was reassuringly busy with lots of people dining. We shared a starter of potted smoked... More

We always seem to end up here when visiting family in the Midlands. This was our first Sunday lunch. A great selection of meat and everything was fresh and home made. We were a party of 8 adults and one child and with a couple of drinks and pudding it worked out about £18 ph. Not an aunt Bessie roast... More

Booked this place as had good reviews. Quite busy and bar staff seemed stressed and not keen to give service, however our table service was great. Food was in generous portions. We pre-ordered christmas menu which sounded delicious but it was slightly disappointing on delivery. Food was good but I was anticipating more of a gourmet pub food which this... More

I am sorry that you were expecting gourmet meals, but we are a country pub, not a restaurant. We have large parties who return every year for our xmas meals and at 19.95 a head for three courses I think it is very reasonable More

I left a hectic pre-Christmas office for an hour to have a quick lunch break before I went mad. I arrived bang on 12, just as they were opening up. Although I was the first one in, the atmosphere was warm, welcoming and friendly. The pub is very clean and has a great cosy feel. I sat at the bar... More

Ate in the Sarah again on Sunday evening - the same evening as the moaning minnies from two of the previous reviews - just felt compelled to add my review - FANTASTIC as always. Just a little note people, if something is not to your taste ie you don't like it - doesn't mean that its not cooked properly!!!!!! Keep... More

BUT not sure what has gone wrong in the kitchen these past few months but it certainly needs looking into, food has gone from what was excellent to border line inedible. Tasteless... More

Sarah M, Owner at The Sarah Mansfield Country Inn, responded to this review

I noticed when you received your meal, you tried a bit of the sauce which wasn't to your taste and immediately pulled a face. We sell an awful lot of Rossini, which has been the same recipe for the last five years. Because it wasn't to your taste it doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the meal. The steaks... More
