We came for brunch and loved the farm shop and the layout of the cafe to the side. The decor is really well done and a nice rustic feel. The food smelt great. Upon sitting down we struggled to understand the menu though - the menu layout was so confusing we had to ask for help, and the dishes on... More

Having had lunch here twice and enjoyed the food and ambiance, it seemed like a good choice for a group of 15 for a pre-Christmas dinner. Communication prior was stilted and the restaurant was not happy for people to choose between two different menus , so we opted for the Xmas menu even though choice was limited to four per... More

A lovely menu with good quality locally sourced ingredients, not too many choices because what they do they do well however, there are dishes that suit all tastes. Service is attentive even when there were two large parties in. One minor criticism - please remove the sinuous layer from the slices of smoked pigeon breast. This would make a lovely... More

As with previous reviewer, our party was met with a similar feeling that we were more of an inconvenience to the staff, rather than paying customer. We took our selections from the vastly over priced Christmas party menu, which had limited selection considering the establishment is owned by a renowned local butcher. To offer just 2 meat dishes for main... More

We ate around 9 on a Saturday evening - booked but probably not the best time. Service was variable - not enough menus to go round, three staff who varied greatly in their warmth and willingness and a very slow process even in bringing water to the table. It seemed as if we were something of a nuisance, to be... More

A lovely, friendly restaurant with first rate food. Staff were efficient and cheerful. We enjoyed the venison, the pigeon and partridge combination and the crab. Everything was fresh and wonderfully presented. A great little find in the heart of Cirencester. Recommended.

I'm going to stick my neck out here, and say this was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. We eat out a lot, and am happy to say that my Cornish Hake with a lobster and saffron mash and buerre noisette was sublime. So perfect in fact that we asked to send our thanks to chef, only to... More

Lunch time busy, but not a long wait for takeaway Cheese burger very nice made with great beef we also had sweet potato fries crispy with a great seasoning. We had jacket potatoes one with cheese (mature and tasty) and one with prawn cocktail. Very reasonably priced

We we wandering round Cirencester and came upon this place by chance, so popped in to give it a try. Our reactions are mixed. One the one hand, the quality of food we had on the 2 or 3 course short lunch menu was good (though the cheese soufflé was a bit over floury IMHO), and by the look of... More
