Eight of us had a lovely evening meal at the Elm on Friday for a friends Birthday, food was good especially the chocolate brownie, staff were very busy running around but still made time for us by keeping our wine glasses full, We will be back and a big thank you to the team.

Had a very nice meal, staff were friendly and attentive. We had our dog with us so worried we might have had to eat outside but the pub is very dog friendly and even have a free dog biscuit jar on the bar (nice touch) it was very nice to go to a pub where it's not ruined by this... More

Visited on Sunday and both had an amazing Sunday beef roast. The meat was tender, the veg fresh, gravy was to die for and to top it off a massive Yorkshire pud. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely be returning during the week for some of their theme nights!

We popped in here for steak night but found that it had changed to grill night, this was even better than before! There was a choice of 3 different options. I had the sirloin and my partner had the rump and half rack of ribs, which only came to £15.95 for both! I wasn't drinking as I was driving but... More

Myself daughter and 5 year old grandson visited today. We decided to go out for the day on a half term treat and as we were in the area I suggested the Elm tree as in the past have had some lovely meals there. We ordered the two meals for £12 option and a pizza from the kids menu. I... More

Hi Julia Sorry to hear about your disappointing visit. I was very concerned to hear there was no manager as there is always one on shift. Having investigated this, at the time of your complaint they were with another customer taking a function booking for our tithe barn, so apologies they couldn't be with you at that moment. The 2...

We had a really nice lunch here. It is nicely decorated and furnished. There is a good varied menu, from sandwiches and baked potatoes to full meals. There seems to be feature days, with special deals. The food arrived promptly and was very nicely cooked and presented. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be back.

Setting is a quaint pub with a few real ales on tap. We had looked at the menu prior to our visit and had chosen our meal only to be disappointed that certain items including some of the items on our list were sold out. Meal otherwise was good and the service was great

We were disappointed with the small portion size for the cost of the dishes we ordered, 2 other patrons also had rise to complain whilst we were there. The service was mediocre, we had to request the desert menu and it appeared there was only one for the entire establishment which took a while to find. The choice of deserts... More

Came here with my mum for lunch, I am gluten free and eating out is often a worry. Noticed at the bottom of the menu it stated that they have an allergen menu listing the allergies present in their food. Great! I told the waitress I can't eat gluten and she rolled her eyes at me! She had no idea... More

I am also shocked and extremely disappointed to hear about this! Under no circumstances should you or anyone else receive service like that. I am happy you have brought it to my attention as I will be able to investigate the matter further and deal with it appropriately. I am also disappointed as we do actually try our best to... More

We had a skittles match in their 'bowling' alley. This multi function converted barn is very nice. We even had linen tablecloths. The 'small' steak and ale pie was ample and good value at £7.50. The half chicken really was and nice and moist, not overlooked. The food was all hot and everyone was happy
