Used to be a lovely pub but has gone downhill. They have recently repainted the outside but the inside is in desperate need of an refurbish. Typical pub food and service.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Cedars where you definitely get two for the price of one! We have the Bar Restaurant, which is on the right hand side as you approach the building, which serves the usual range of King Henry’s Taverns freshly prepared meals to your table. The setting here is quite stunning and not at all what you would expect from the main road. Panoramic windows in the main eating area overlook the fountain and pond, which is fed from a waterfall under a footbridge. Surrounded by gardens this is a great place for al fresco dining on warmer nights. On the left hand side we have our lounge bar, which is quite simply a great place to go for a drink. There's a spacious area with leather sofas for a more relaxed atmosphere. Why not visit the Bar Restaurant for a meal, then relax in the lounge bar and listen to great music!
