We always pop in here after a long dog walk at Frensham Ponds. Food is always excellent. We had a lovely brunch today. Simple, tasty and service was great as always.

Great welcoming pub for lunch, meals or just a drink - we dropped in in a rain storm and were made very welcome and had a lovely lunch, coffee and cake. Great decor and relaxed feel.

The decor is not to everyone's taste rather distressed! Had a lovely curry but choice of sandwiches very poor. Service good and staff pleasant.

Great pub to meet friends. Very popular so car park is often full and pub noisy. Great selection of food. Good 0% beer too for beer loving drivers.

Certainly different items on the menu, but the soup could best be described as "insufficient", when we had just completed a long walk, and the food itself was pricey.

Friendly service from the (young) staff. There are two parts to this pub, the 'lower' side seems to be where those with dogs and/or children gather - and where we were which was fine. The food was very tasty, I had the fishcake - a...More
