Lovely restaurant in a beautiful rural location. The quality of the food was superb. The roast chicken was so tasty and tender, and the Yorkshire pud was perfection. Save room for desserts!! They were pretty wicked too. I also thought it was priced surprisingly well for a restaurant of this calibre. I've paid a lot more for a lot less... More

This is not your average pub food as one may think. It is actually a pretty good restaurant with good food and very pleasant staff.
