Visited at 6pm for a mothering Sunday meal with relatives arrived at 6pm,were offered drinks at 6.15,so far OK,drinks arrived 15 minutes later when the waiter took our order. This pub offers bulk standard fare with very high prices.e.g £16 for a roast dinner.so we were looking for an enjoyable meal with good service so offset the overall cost. The... More

We came here 2 years ago and had a lovely meal, and thought we would come again as an early Mother's Day meal for my mum as she lives locally. I'm not sure if it has changed hands but we all were very disappointed. We waited at least 45 minutes for our mains to arrive by which time we were... More

Recently went for team lunch but was disappointed as usually much better food served. Were all served meagre portions, whereas in the past have usually been generous.Three of our soups were sent back as although tasty were lukewarm, unfortunately they weren't much hotter when they came back. They were served with one measly piece of sliced bread and hard butter.... More

Been coming to this pub for 10 year plus and have always been offered good service and a good meal at a reasonable price . Over the past 6 months I feel the price has increased and quality of food has gone down, the Service is good but I am very disappointed as we are now looking at alternative venues... More

Had a great meal and afternoon at the pub on a miserable wet Sunday. Food was lovely, staff really helpful and friendly - we had 4 kids with us who were really relaxed in the environment, brilliant afternoon, we will be back soon!

I only write a negative review if I have made the establishment aware beforehand, so they are aware. We came here for a late Sunday lunch after visiting Mottisfont House and were really hungry. I am watching my weight and therefore on a low fat diet. We chose a roast after checking that I could have a jacket potato rather... More

I was lucky enough to visit this beautiful country pub with my parents for Saturday lunch. I'm a vegan and asked what they had on the menu, which was fortunately nothing - fortunately because they then asked me what I'd like and they'd make something for me. I didn't want to be a nuisance (it's the English in me) and... More

My boyfriend and I (we are an older couple) visited here for our first Valentine Dinner. We were seated in the bar area as the restaurant was busy (a table was booked previously). We both had the mushroom starter which was very good, followed by the lasagne and the salmon both good also and we finished with the trio of... More

Last Sunday we had lunch here at this welcoming country pub. Between the five of us we had a fish dish, veggie roast and a 3 meat monster roast. All agreed that the dishes were large portions and excellent along with good beer and wine.We will be back.
