I have eaten here quiet a few times in the past and it has always been good, however on this occassion something has changed and it is not the same high quality food as before although it was acceptable, but even the onion rings are now out of a bag instead of being home made as was previously the case...

This pub/ restaurant is located on Horswell common which has a huge number of paths,tracks,etc for great walks. The meals were very nice. Our group selected a wide range of meals varying from sandwiches to bream, fish and chips,etc. All of our party were satisfied with the quality of the food and surroundings. Prices were reasonably high but not exorbitant.... More

The restaurant was extremely busy but the manager asked us to have a drink at the bar and she would be able to get us seated shortly - she did. Food was excellent and although I had the roast I was... More

Last here around 3 years ago - the food is OK but limited selection. The atmosphere very noisy - perhaps it was a Company do. Service could be better and has potential to be a more inspiring place - so, so but others like Red Lion do it slightly better.
