Visited recently for a family gathering (CoVid limited) and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality and service provided. Great staff, lovely food, fantastic atmosphere and all reasonably priced. Hearty portions and couldn't fit in pudding! Certainly one to visit again!

Great find not too far from our hotel in Stoke Rochford. Cosy setting and really friendly staff, the £12 early bird menu was a welcome surprise and the food was hearty & delicious!

We visited here for lunch today - 4 people and we were all disappointed with our food. We’d heard good reports, but understand that it’s recently been taken under new management who seem to be trying to cut costs and corners. The first bad sign...More
