We incidentally chose this pub for an overnight stay during our roadtrip of South England. And we absoultely loved it! All. Our room and its stylish decorations, the restaurant, the food we had for dinner, the ambiance, the breakfast next morning. Would definitely come back again!

Te staf are clearly not professionally trained and, to be honest couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery. Bar staff quite obviously prefer to be on their ipads than serve customers.

The menu was diverse and tasty from whitebait to steaks, burgers, chicken and kedgerie all perfectly cooked with the most delicious twice cooked chips. The staff... More

Lucky enough to stop over for two nights and enjoyed the full english breakfast twice as well as two evening dinners. All very good and the Porterhouse steak we shared was fabulous indeed. Food menu does seem minimalist but should cater for most tastes. They also offer daily specials to enhance the choice. The wine list most definitely caters for... More

We discovered this establishment online, on telephoning for a reservation the lady just managed to squeeze us in therefore we assumed on popularity alone that we had struck lucky by chance, how wrong we were.
