Great service, food delicious. We had four main courses between us beef wellington, chicken Kiev, ribeye steak and steak, kidney and mushroom pie. Each person enjoyed their food. Lovely bread and butter pudding and very tasty treacle tart. The service was quick and friendly. Happily...More

We had fond memories of visits several years ago and so were disappointed to find that the standard has slipped. The faded peeling paint on the sign outside was a clue at to what we would find inside. The building is a beautiful sixteenth century...More

Called in 3:30pm on Sunday afternoon after a walk. Saw at least 5 different staff in the 5 minutes I waited, but nobody behind the bar. Went to use the toilets. Came out, still nobody behind the bar, nobody saying they would be with me...More

Love to go in the winter for the added bonus of the log fire, love to go in the summer to sit out in the garden! The menu is always lovely and caters well for all choices.
