Came for breakfast Labor Day weekend. I had the sticky toffee waffles. No words, just Mmmmmmmm! My husband had the full Scottish breakfast, which he thoroughly enjoyed! We can't wait to come again

Interesting especially for its bucolic setting in the midst of gorgeous, expansive horse country. Pub food - shepherd's pie, Welsh rarebit, and the like. Casual, but suitable for a celebration. Outside dining is especially nice. Lots of good beer.

This is where all the local horsemen go for a bite and a couple of pints of ale. The food is good, with many traditional English pub dishes and beer. Great atmosphere but can get a little loud.

Great tavern! Good variety of beers. Good English menu. My wife and I both had the Deluxe Pie. Kind of like Shepherds pie but seafood instead of lamb. Salmon, shrimp, scallops. Great sauce. Wonderful meal. We both had beers on tap - Sly Fox -...More

I think you can. The food was good and not priced too bad. But watch the drinks. I think they charge $7 a beer

You have directed this question to a fellow trip advisor member. It is better asked of the restaurant. As a previous answer indicated they do not take reservation and wait times can be long; one can always have a drink at... More
