Very welcoming and excellent service. The menu offered sufficient choice without being too extensive and the food was done to perfection. Good choice of ales, cocktails and wines. The function room seating 12 was very cosy for a special occasion. Highly recommended.

This is a very pleasant country house pub with guest-house next door. Inexpensive with great food. Close to Old Warden Aerodrome and the Shuttleworth Collection.

Staying locally, we visited this pub on a Saturday night. The duo of Pork and the Gressingham duck mains were excellent. Service was fast and efficient. Would definitely return when we next visit this area.

The pub is now under "new" ownership--had lunch this week--rather disappointing. First, dining room was freezing cold-hardly a cozy pub ambience on a cold day. We were given a table and then asked to move as they overlooked that it had been requested and reserved....More

Booked in with friends for a pre xmas meal. Lovely pub, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Ordered traditional roast turkey. Everything was fine except the turkey which instead of being carved off the breast looked like it came out of a tin. Tasted okay but...More
