“Very nice”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

A very nice friendly inn, the room was very clean and comfortable, the décor was very good. I would have liked a thermostatically controlled shower, and the wi fi was not available in Room 2.
I ate in the bar and it was a very good meal at a reasonable price, breakfast was good. All the staff I met were very friendly. Plenty of parking is available.

Very good quality food, freshly cooked and hot. Ample choices for vegetarians (not just boring pasta)

“Quite good - could have been outstanding”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Have visited on and off since the 1960's but not for some years now.
A much more friendly pub than at one time. Two of us visited on a warm, sunny, quiet day in September. Two excellent, well kept, draught bitters were enjoyed with the meal. The service was good, the food was piping hot and well-prepared. The menu is quite extensive.
Our whitebait starters included some salad and were fine. Main course was lamb shank, peas, mash and gravy. Quality was very good...but..... here comes the 'but'. What could have been an exceptional meal became no more than 'quite good' because we both felt there was something missing: a portion of, say, carrots and 2 or 3 mushrooms would have transformed the experience whilst only adding negligibly to the cost. I had fresh strawberries to finish. The quantity was good and the flavour was to die for. Not everyone would like the aerosol cream, although I don't particularly mind. I'll certainly return - sometime - but 'The Cherry Brandy House' as it has always been known as in generations of our family, will have to wait awhile. There are other places I'll be trying first as I continue to search for that elusive perfect pub meal. Four stars seems a bit over the top; three would be too low.
