This was my first visit and will most certainly not be my last. Had lunch at this lovely restaurant and this was a real treat. A great atmosphere and excellent food. The service was very efficient and the staff very polite and attentive. Looking forward to next visit.

I have eaten here many times and each one was a delight. Parts of this pub were built in 1642 so for tall people like me (2m) it really is a severe case of duck or grouse.

We had a range of diet needs, carnivores to sort of vegan, but we all ate well (although my SIL did ring to ensure no cheese was put into the onion tart...but this... More

Tucked away down a country lane, this is a jewel of a restaurant. Real old world charm, and authentic. Creative meals excellent and mouthwatering, plus quick and pleasant service. Recommended.

What can I say, amazing night out yet again. Only managed to get an early booking but worth it. Best steak I have ever had by a mile. The staff are fantastic and the atmosphere of this place is amazing. Top Notch. Can't wait to go back.
