Amazing, quaint, querky and some excellent service and good food! My wife and I needed lunch on Easter Saturday and found this gem of a pub. I had a cheese and ham ploughmans (One of the best I have had in years) and my wife had the chicken liver pate. A charming person served us and did all the food!... More

Popped in during the afternoon. Two cask ales available, lovely little courtyard garden which was a sun trap, sure to be gorgeous come the summer. Very friendly as well.

Searched for place to eat on our first day of visit to Sandwich and had almost given up until we found this gem. Toad in the hole was delicious with beautifully cooked veg and the seafood linguine was mouthwatering. The beer was as good as it can get. Lovely friendly service. Relaxed. Interesting antique decor too. And returned two days... More

My wife and I booked two weeks ahead of our reservation after the owner had waxed lyrical to us about how good his Chateaubriand was, we took him at his word and pre-ordered it for my Birthday meal. We turned up as arranged to find that they had forgotten our reservation and therefore no Chateaubriand. We were offered Rib Eye... More

All three of us (me, my boyfriend and dad) went for the... More

This is a lovely place for a relaxed evening meal; food is very very good indeed and a short fresh every day menu. Chef Gavin can certainly cook. Also there is a choice of local craft beers, craft gins and a small but good wine list. Log burner and comfy seats , btu proper tables to sit at for dining

Had a fabulous meal here. Lovely surroundings, great beer and very good value. A really good place to send an evening. If you are eating you will need to book as it gets busy.
