I was shocked to be told by the management that some uneaten food that has been laid out for a buffet, gets re-used in dishes ordered from the main menu. I find this rather shocking! If I order food from a menu, I don't expect it to have been touched up earlier in the day. Shame, as it was nice...

We've wanted to have a meal here for some time and it was worth the wait. The food was excellent! A sharing baked Camembert to start was a great appetiser. The braised blade of beef was incredibly tender and the accompanying sauce was very tasty. The faggots and lamb shank were also impressive and the home made double cooked chips...

We called in with a friend after a visit to Sunnycroft, the National Trust Property just up the road. Although it was busy it was still possible to enjoy good conversation in a quiet corner. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and it was really good to see a wide range of more imaginative vegetarian choices. The food was...

Popped in for a drink after work (5:30ish) and was pleasantly surprised to be charged less than a fiver for two pints of cider! It must have been happy hour, though I didn't see any signs to indicate it. Lovely pub, nice decor, friendly staff. I've been in before for a hot chocolate (delicious!) and a quick bite for lunch...

Popped in for lunch. Very nice venue, quiet and small rooms. Great menu with range of small meals to full meals. Quite good vegetarian selection. My wife ordered the vegetarian toad in the hole which came with salad, seasonal veg or chips - she very cheekily asked if there was mashed potato available could she have that. Waiter returned to...

Thank you for your review. That sort of flexibility is one of the benefits of being independent and non corporate. We have a real chef who enjoys making people happy, a rare thing I think. It was our pleasure to cater for you. See you again soon
