Have eaten here several times before. Menu changes regularly although retains a couple of staples. This not pub food. The quality is great and consistent. No it's not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.

Extremely limited menu. If we were not with friends we would of walked out. No decent chips left or bread left. Ridiculously over price, poor quality food. Would not go back.

Had an impromptu dinner here the other night which was, as usual, great! Had trout to start and lamb with sweetbreads for a main. Both really good! If I'm being honest the pear pudding wasn't as good as the other two courses, but was still nice. Sitting by the open fire after a long walk there was perfect! Hope to... More
