A welcoming pub, full menu choices plus traditional lunch. Comfortable surroundings and good service, children well catered for. We will be going back after the Christmas rush

We had a Christmas meal there a couple of years ago and it was very good. This time we found the food very mediocre. Has there been a change of chef ?

Can’t fault anything. Food is lovely and we have eaten here before. Perfect Sunday roast in a cozy setting. A real hidden gem in Ashford. Would certainly recommend.

Fabulous meal, huge portions, well cooked and presented. Attentive and polite staff, good range of beers and ales. Very reasonable prices, highly recommend the trio of sausage and mash in a giant Yorkshire pud. Well worth a visit.
