Called in with our two dogs for a late lunch - once again we stumbled on a beautiful dog friendly place to eat. We chose the daily special - lamb steak with all the trimmings and it was superb. The dessert menu was tempting so we succumbed and tried the sticky toffee pudding and the Black Forest mousse - both... More

Went on line to find a place for Sunday lunch that had a good veggie and vegan selection. Found a great one here. Lots of options for all courses plus vegan wines and ales.

called in for breakfast and a drink on the way to Cheltenham races on 16th March. Pre-booked the table (for 11) and phoned order through 15 minutes before got there. Lovely pub, made to feel very welcome and the breakfasts were excellent. Even gave quick directions to the racecourse. Excellent start to the day and will go back again. Thanks

Amazing food. we have stopped off for a drink before and wanted to try out the Sunday lunch. we were not disappointed, the portions were huge. I had the steak and ale pie with silton pastry, would definitely have that again. Didn't go hungry.

I have been looking forward to visiting this pub for ages. Catering for meat eaters and vegetarian is a winning formula for my family. We finally visited on Thursday night having booked a table. First impressions were really good. Parking was easy, all on the flat. Pub is decorated in a contemporary way and the welcome was friendly. The vegan/vegetarian... More

As always, I could only hope the impossible would happen. My wife convinced me to try to be sociable and go to this pub for a meal. Surprisingly, I really enjoyed the Lamb's Liver with creamed potatoes, vegetables that were 'al dente' to perfection and a shallot onion sauce. I was assured it was all freshly cooked and am certain... More

A warm, friendly welcome and great varied selection of vegan and vegetarian food as well as other meaty dishes. I can vouch for the nut roast Sunday lunch. Interesting local history of the pub too.

Our second visit without the children this time for a birthday treat meal for just us. Came for the increased selection of vegetarian meals and great atmosphere. The staff service was quick, polite and frequent. The food was well proportioned, hot and very tasty. Again, we were very pleased with our evening and will definitely be returning.
