Our visit last Saturday was a real pleasure. We enjoyed a superb meal Whitebait. Parma Ham and Melon for starters. Main courses of Sea Bass and Confit of Duck. Followed by Crème Brule and Meringue stack. The service was excellent and staff and Owners could not have given us a better welcome. We certainly recommend this great Hostelry.

The decision to visit on my Birthday was an easy one, the staff are so accommodating, giving you a taster of the wines if you're not certain what you fancy. Great Traditional Food at Honest prices.

This is a delightful pub - probably best described as a pastor pub. The staff are immensely welcoming. The beer is great. On a previous occasion, I have sat out in the garden which was a delight. On this recent visit, the food was not outstanding, good enough, but slightly out of keeping with the location, the presentation of the... More

We were told about this restaurant by a close friend and found the restaurant was every bit as good as we expected. Friendly staff, good food well presented and hot. Well worth a visit.

Staff were really friendly, food wasn't cheap but sizes were generous, and the surrounding countryside is lovely. Would recommend going for lunch and walk around Broughton castle

My partner and I dined here for lunch after a visit to a local sanctuary and farm. We were greeted by two lovely people who directed us to a spacious table with enough space to put our daughters car seat (she's 5 months) so she wouldn't get in anyone's way. We ordered 2 sandwiches - roast pork and beef. Unfortunately... More
