Went with friends. Lovely atmosphere. Had a little wait for the table but staff attentive. Decided to try the partridge as I've never had before, it was delicious and the staff were happy to go through and Discuss the difference between pheasant and partridge etc. Only thing I would have liked a like more choice on the main menu but...

Live locally and eat there often. Also eat at other pubs and restaurants. Got to go a long way to get a better meal so would definitely recommend. Quality and value unbeatable. Recommended to many friends who also agree!

Excellent freshly cooked food at reasonable prices. The menu is not that extensive but there is a reasonable choice of dishes on offer including specials. My advise would be to reserve a table to avoid disappointment as this pub is out in the sticks you may find find that you have made a wasted journey. The staff always seem very... More

I had the duck spring rolls followed by partridge wrapped in bacon, both of which were first class. My wife had breaded mushrooms followed by hake in crispy breadcrumbs. Loved the mushrooms and enjoyed the hake even more. A reasonably priced fleurie sealed our enjoyment. Service was good. Will return.
