Finally visited the restaurant after hearing lots of good reports. There were 4 couples and we visited on a busy Friday night. There is a bar side that was very full of locals and the other side is a small restaurant. All the tables were filled so it's definitly a place you need to book. Atmosphere is great. We all... More

To begin, what an unpleasant post by the previous reviewer. I am beginning to think that either they have a personal axe to grind against the owner or a HUGE chip on their shoulder about BREXIT! Anyway, to the important part .... Six of us, including two very small grandchildren, celebrated my husband's birthday here last Sunday. The welcome we... More

Dull mid-90s fare in the over-close company of braying Little Englanders who are no doubt the target market. If you want an interesting dinner with pleasant ambience then this is not a good option. If you want pub food from the last century while over-hearing conversations about how wonderful Nigel Farage is in a table two feet away then this... More

What a find! This gem of a pub in Seer Green has always been known for great food but it seems to go from strength to strength. We visited March and little wonder it was busy. We nabbed the table by booking a week before. The menu is to die for! Local Venison Fillet with Pancetta, Dauphinoise Potatoes, Bitter Chocolate... More

What can I say. Just great. Four of us old timers had a delicious Sunday roast beef lunch. The beef was lovely and the vegetables were just as good. The whole plate was as good a Sunday roast as I've ever had. Great sweet. Great service. Fantastic experience. Highly recommended.

It's a small place for sure but that's not an issue. Had a nice drink at the bar, good selection of beers on tap. The menu is the right size, unlike some places that have too much, this has something for everyone. We all had starters, mains and two deserts between 4. A couple bottles of their Bordeaux, and half... More

Excellent duck leg for starter. Very tasty! I found the main course a bit over facing but if one has a larger appetite than myself it is a good way of getting 5 of the 10 a day - mine included carrots, cabbage, mashed parsnip, creamed leeks & mange tout. Lovely staff, very helpful!
