Sunday meal out with the family. I hadn't been here since it was taken over by the new owners and what an incredible improvement since the last visit. It's always been a nice place, but now the food and drinks are where they should be. Definitely one of the best, if not the best, pubs in the area. And apologies... More

We visited for a mid week lunch and thought this was a lovely country pub. The dining area was spotless and beautifully laid out. We were made very welcome by all the staff who served us. As this was a Wednesday lunchtime, the pub was very quiet and after a drink at the bar, which had a good choice of... More

Lovely atmosphere in the bar although there were not too many people and also it was a Monday evening. Good choice of beers and great choice of gin - tried the Bullards gin which has recently been voted the... More

Stopped here on a walk to sample their newly opened coffee shop in the snug. Surroundings were lovely (cosy fire etc) but overall very disappointed. Service was slow, coffee was cold and cakes etc on offer was rather limited. I was also charged £2.00 for a piece of lemon in hot water! It could be they were having teething problems... More

`lovely ambience, but service slow and vegetarian options undeveloped. My burger was gorgeous but the veggie felafel were disappointingly dry and unappetising.

Nobody greeted us when we stood at the bar. Took over 15 minutes for a server to take our drinks order. Sever then dropped our drinks all over another table and we waited another 15 minutes. Bread very dry with olives starter. My steak was lovely but pork loin steak very small. Burger bun was burnt and burger tasteless .... More

Chose this venue as a convenient meeting place for a mid week family lunch. It was clear from the reviews and web site that there would be no "light lunch" options or cheaper pub lunches so it wasn't a surprise to see prices at the upper end of gastro pub food. 3 of us had the special of a wonderfully...

Ambience is lovely, as are the staff. Food is a bit slow getting to the table. I had a fab burger and the chips were diivine. But the test of a good place is always the attention paid to the vegetarians. This chef is no vegetarian! The felafel were dry and needed a spicy salsa, not a bit of harissa... More
