So, we came back for the 18th beer festival and discovered the Gin tent!! What a brilliant idea. Blessed with better weather this year, we had a great time supping the ales before heading towards the gins (all well garnished and over ice in a gin balloon). Live music was excellent starting with Sugar Tree Band (my favourite) and followed by some very familiar 80's sounds which got quite a few to their feet dancing in the sunshine. All in all, a fab afternoon. Staff really good again. Only let down was the hog roast from an external supplier. Meat was tasteless, crackling was rubbery and they charged too much for such poor product. Lesson learned.....I'll stick with a burger next year. Beer and Gin Festival was great though......really great.

Ate here before and food very nice, but mixed feeling this time. I had rump steak which was very nice and cooked well, but my wife's meal was awful, she had the new gammon off the menu, it was a lot smaller than before and over cooked. It came with a slice of pineapple which was burnt on one side and basically a boiled egg with a bit of coating on it. It was awful. My mum had the hunters chicken which was basically half an overcooked chicken breast, with hard inedible bacon on it . My dad had a ribeye steak which was ok but the experience has put us off going again.

Visited today for a Sunday roast dinner and I have to say the food was shocking. Im surprised we didn't hear the microwave PING.. refused to pay as all meals went back. I wouldn't have fed my dogs with those meals. They were vile and a 1 star is too good. Visit the Harrington Arms Thulston if u want a proper home cooked Sunday roast.

4 of us ate here on recent visit, and had mixed fortunes I had a mixed grill and when it eventually arrived it was tepid at best and the steak was terrible, but 2 had the fish and chips and were happy with what they received the fish was large and hot but chips were not great but ok. But the lasagne the 4 person had was awful,wet runny and tasteless and they sent It back and ended up just eating garlic bread!
The waitress wasn't overly impressed when we told her about the issues but did discount the meal! But certainly won't be rushing back.
