Visited tonight, food was excellent. Extensive menu, something for everyone. Rabbit stew was delicious, the pork filet with prunes and brandy sauce was first class (could taste the brandy in the sauce)

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime as a family group of 8 ranging from 7 years old to 82. Every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, they were plentiful, served incredibly quickly and all at the same time, piping hot and delicious. Highly recommend.

Splendid. Not a word to be used very often and generally when it comes to food, usually misconstrued. In this incidence however, I am talking about a birthday lunch I enjoyed with the Memsahib that was not only memorable but also splendid. Finding The New...More
