What a gem! All produce locally sourced and absolutely delicious. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Venison and mushroom pie, a triumph!! My wife had the beef stew and said it melted in the mouth. All reasonably priced. I would thoroughly recommend!

Wow... Me and my partner asked for a mixture of all three meats (beef, pork & lamb). The food was excellent - the meats were so tender and the vegetable had a delicious crunch to them! We had a bottle of merlot - great wine...More

Visited for dinner and enjoyed really good food and service. The menu changes regularly and dishes usually have an interesting twist. Good wine list that’s not expensive.
