We visited this around Christmas time and enjoyed the relaxed, homely feel. Open fire as we entered, very welcoming on a cold night. Three of us went for the Venison, and were not disappointed. Service was very good. A little on the pricey side but...More

Sunday lunch with my elderly mother - we were treated like royalty throughout. We took my two Border Terriers too who were bribed with the obligatory bag of crisps, so truly dog friendly unlike many who claim to be but aren’t. The service was exceptionally...More

Easy to find from the A303 (with a sat nav). Ample car parking. We actually arrived 45 mins early having made better progress than we expected. This didn't cause any problems. We had been told that there was a large function happening that lunch time....More

Sorry Charlotte, there is an extensive wine list but I couldn’t quote it. Look on their website. The London Pride is great.
