Met here as its situated in a brilliant location and as a plus it's dog friendly. The menu is decent, quite large and lots to choose from. I had the chicken satay with sweet potato fries washed down with a few beers. The price is good too my bill didn't break the bank. The service was good too, all smiles... More

This was my first time to visit the establishment. If I told you we had two main courses of bangers and mash, one desert, tapwater and a bottle of white wine I wonder if you would agree that £65 was extortionate. It is such a shame, because the meal itself was fine. I'm not going to record it was amazing,... More

Food is good but the necessity to order a side dish to make it into a meal is irritating and makes for an expensive night out. The bar/table service is excellent but unfortunately the kitchen needs to be a little speedier. I love this place dearly as there are so many good things about it but a 40 minutes wait... More

I hosted dinner for a group of Swiss colleagues and they were thoroughly impressed be the high quality traditional English menu options. In particular I can recommend the bubble and squeak, the sausages and mash, the steak. Our waitress really looked after us and we provided a birthday cake for one of my guests - which was served with candles... More

£17.50 for a main of 2 (tiny) roasted new potatoes halved, dessertspoon of mushrooms and 2 small plaice fillets 4" long, 2" wide 1cm deep, is overpriced. For a light lunch that's okay but hardly a decent main course plus every item had too much butter - if drained would've been more palatable. The service is excellent and ambience is... More

My partner had been before & recommended we go here. Was simply delightful, from beginning to end. Food is amazing & some might feel expensive but a worthwhile treat. Service was genuine & very courteous. Still thinking of the sausages & mash! Hmmmmmmm

It has a reputation for being rather overpriced for the quality and volume of food provided. Nice location. Some of the dishes look as if they're quick boil in a bag so not justifying the prices charged. Food can be tasty but you come away feeling you've paid a bit too much.

Description
Our Little Gem is a delightful country pub & restaurant that's full of charm, character and plenty of friendly faces. All are welcome in our bar area - even the beloved pooch! (Our doggy biscuit jar may be of interest to said pooch...) We have a stylish but cosy, two level dining room, a relaxed and informal bar area with a roaring log fire for the chilly months - and our lovely garden and terrace overlooking the village church is the perfect spot for those warmer days when the sun comes out to play. Everything on our menus is freshly made in our kitchen, including our ice creams and tasty chutneys. Our dishes change in line with the seasons and are made using the best local produce that we can get our hands on. In fact - If you think your veggies are top of the crops, then bring them along...we accept them as currency! (We're totally serious - Please ask) We're what you might call a 'proper pub', serving a selection of great real ales and lagers, alongside premium spirits and a good range of soft drinks and organic juices. Our wine list is carefully sourced (that bit was fun) and features boutique wineries - producing an exciting and individual list with many wines served by the glass. Planning a party? If you need that perfect spot to get some business done away from the office, or if you have something special to celebrate, please give us a call! We'll take all the hard work off your hands. Nearby, there are great walks in the beech woodlands of Common and Penn Woods, perfect for a visit to walk off one of our indulgent puds, or that Sunday roast. Whatever the occasion, if you're looking for a lovely spot to eat great food and catch up with friends and family, we think The OQH is just the place... We look forward to welcoming you soon! Tina (General Manager)
