I have been to this restaurant a number of times with my partner and groups of friends! The food has always been fantastic. My only criticism would be that the service is occasionally a bit slow! The Bakewell slice for dessert with the Irish Cream ice cream is to die for!!!

We went here last week and once we told the girl behind the bar we had a booking all we got from her was 'name' barked at us and then she said miserably 'would you like me to show you to your table' well yes that would be helpful actually! It seemed like we were an inconvenience to her and... More

As soon as you walk in the atmosphere is wonderful. Feels like there is something special, the decor is beautiful, gives a warm feeling. The venue is bigger than expected but feels very homely and laid out in such a way as to still provide privacy. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We ordered the pate duo to charge between us...

Hello, Thank you for taking the time with this wonderful review. We, as a team are very thankful that you found it so great. Probably one of our favourite meals id the Wagyu burger, its got everything you need, but if youre extra greedy, you can add cheese and/or bacon to it! Hope to see you again. Tarrant Lines More

Passing by tonight and we decided to have dinner rather than cook when we got home. Very warm welcome and shown to our table. Ordered our drinks and food. At this point, we asked to move tables as it was quite cold by the window and the radiator was off so quite a chill. Also, the lighting was very dim.... More

We came here for an early family reunion Christmas meal as it's an easy spot for family members to reach. The pub has always looked appealing when we've passed. Due to the time of year, parking in their large car park was a challenge and the restaurant, which is large was packed. We were having a Christmas meal which we... More

Hi Thank you for leaving your kind review, im glad despite your travel time we managed to look after you properly. The car park has been an issue over christmas as lots of people meet up and drive separately, its usually not a problem! Lets hope we see you again soon! Regards Tarrant More

We visited just before Christmas. It didn't get off to a good start, it was a very cold day and the heating wasn't on so we had to wear our coats to keep warm. The barman said he had only just arrived (12pm) so he hadn't had a chance to put it on. They were very short staffed and had... More

Hello Dot, My apologies that your experience with us wasn't the best. We have started putting the heating on a bit earlier now so the pub has time to warm up for when people arrive. Unfortunately we are still having supply issues of sourcing our Lamb (the chicken was a one day issue) that we are working hard behind the... More

Quick lunch break on the way to Andover.Big property with a high roadside profile and massive interior done out in faux vintage style with multi linked eating areas. The mixed pate (£5.25) was in fact two types of pate,one pork and one chicken and was served with two slices of thin ciabatta type bread,watercress and two plate smears of apple... More

We have eaten here several times and again we were not disappointed. Despite the team being short staffed we once again received courteous and friendly service, piping hot good pub food that was both tasty and of good size.

Popped in today with family, no booking but got a table fine. Had to go back to the bar to enquire where my drink was after 10 minutes as I still didn't have it but they sorted it out straight away. We all had good food and I'd particularly recommend the chicken and mushroom pizza with the creamy garlic base,... More
