Visited the Merlin a few months ago with a friend. We both had the Trio of Roasts which was all cooked perfectly. Attentive staff and relaxed surroundings made for a lovely Sunday. Will visit again soon.

I'm not sure, but if you call them they are very helpful. it's a lovely village. The Drum and Monkey did great food and I believe it has a nice outside area (if we ever get any decent weather) good luck

Yes, it has a little bar area too if you're not eating but if you are eating I would book in as it gets busy. It has a nice relaxed vibe about the place too.
