I have given a rating of two, but that isn't for anything else other than the fact I came here from nearby Kettering with customers for lunch [Wednesday 11th January] to find it closed with no notice or any explanation. I checked on their website as I know some village pubs have limited opening hours and indeed they are closed... More

This is a lovely village pub, the food is very good but was astonished by the cost of drinks. This is a great place I the summer with a large garden very kid friendly. Lovely stop off during walks around the area.

Recently revisited here as they have new owners, the previous Landlord was not good with people at all. New management are great, very friendly and the service is excellent. A great affordable menu with plenty of choice on offer. 10/10

We took our 3 and 5 year old here for Sunday lunch and we were very impressed with the service. The staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The children's dessert menu was a highlight...even I had something from it. The candy shop cheesecake was so nice! The toilets were absolutely spotless and the decor of the... More

Food was amazing. Set menu had so much to offer... we were all so pleased with every course. My pate was lovely... walnut salad was lovely. The... More

My wife, daughter and I had lunch here a couple of days ago and were very warmly greeted by the staff. The place is very welcoming and warm; space is limited and booking may be advisable at peak times. There is a good menu with reasonable prices; if you are looking for good quality food, well prepared and presented, go... More

Lovely refurbished pub, shame the food let's it down really. It is very overpriced, and flavourless. My Eton mess didn't actually have any meringue in it!!! The waiting staff while lovely do not seem to be trained properly, the service was extremely poor. The landlady could also do with training in bar work and customer service in my opinion! I... More
