There is a reason this establishment has a Certificate of Excellence; the setting, quality of food are simply just that - excellent. This was our second visit in two months and as per my last review, I really do recommend you book in advance (which can be done online if you prefer), simply turning up isn't really an option. We...

We went here for Sunday lunch, recommended by friends as we're not local. Fab bar area with beautiful roaring fire perfect for sitting with a coffee and the paper on the lovely leather seats. The food itself was lovely, enjoyed every bit!! Our only niggle was that we had special dietary requirements and although these are very well catered for,... More

Visited on a Thursday night for my 50th birthday celebrations - 28 people in total. Richard and Laura had worked closely with my husband prior to the day to ensure everything was as he wanted and nothing disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome, as always and everyone's food was hot and delicious. The whole service team were lovely... More

My second visit in two months and as I'm not a local it's quite a trek for me but so worth it. Our table was ready when we arrived but we had time for a quick drink at the bar. When seated we chose our drinks, some lovely wines on offer and everyone was pleased with their choice. We quickly... More

Visited again for my birthday last week and is still one of my favourite village pubs for eating. Staff are very professional -our waitress was very new but really excellent-and the food is varied and tasty at reasonable prices. Live music on some Friday evenings.

We had booked for a large party of 21 for our parents anniversary. When we arrived the table was not ready but staff did there most to speed things up. Our starters were nice, no complaints there and they also served the children's mains at the same time which was good as children don't like to wait too long. The... More

Went on a Wednesday and had the midweek deal, the red wine was divine, and all the food was lovely, especially the winter veg pie. Very well priced for the quality too. The restaurant itself is spacious and very nicely laid out. Very friendly staff who were welcoming and attentive.

Service very good but food poor for price. Will not be visiting again. Menu looked amazing but in reality were small portions. Cold veg and potato and had to wait a further 10 minutes for 1 of party's meal
