We popped in on an impromptu visit as we drive home from the New Forest. What a fabulous find! We had a delicious Sunday lunch and desserts. They were incredibly friendly and we all enjoyed the food.

Always a great welcome. The perfect pub restaurant. Super food and beer. The venison and ale pie is all I could wish for. Well worth a serious deviation for the hungry traveller.

Yes we do use rapeseed but we also use olive oil and butter. The only place we use the rapeseed oil is in our fryer. If your sister makes the chefs aware they can use another oil.
