We ate in the restaurant Saturday lunch time...we arrived at 1pm and it the restaurant was empty and only started to fill when we left after 2pm...however, we received a very warm greeting and the waitress serving us was very pleasant and attentive. Delicious pate to start, husband loved the rarebit and also the burger as his main, Mother enjoyed the duck breast and my calves liver and mash was delicious, beautifully cooked. The mash was rustic and very tasty and veg cooked perfectly with a nice crunch. However, portion was far too large so we couldn't manage the pud but shall be back to try it. I imagine it's a pleasant pub in the Summer...a great kids area but set well away from the main outside dining which is a good idea. Interior nice and cosy...prices v reasonable.

We have regularly eaten off the snack menu here and enjoyed the traditional pub atmosphere inside or the comfortable eating area outside surrounded by well kept gardens. We have always found the food and service to be excellent this is a friendly family run village pub.

Had several weekend lunches here now. Consistently high standard. British classics with a twist, beautifully presented, great value. Looking forward to returning soon and getting our loyalty card stamped!

I would not recommend this pub on the service my family and I received. We went for Easter lunch and although we enjoyed our food, the overall experience was deeply unsatisfactory. Moments after our plates were cleared we were informed by a rude waitress that we had to vacate the table within 15 minutes because another party was waiting in the bar. This was not made clear at the time of booking, had this been the case we would not have chosen to dine there. She did not apologise and made us feel awkward, undervalued and unreasonable. This put a real dampener on what was supposed to be a relaxed family meal, as we were not treated as valued customers and instead were an inconvenience! The waitress continued to be bad mannered and we felt unable to order dessert, let alone coffee. The manager did deduct 10% from our bill, but it left an unpleasant taste in our mouths and made what should have been a pleasant family meal, a stressful disappointment. The food was excellent, but poor service truly ruined the meal.

Good food, chef willing to alter dishes to suit, friendly service, options for vegetarians, decent beer. Often called the 'Baker's Arms' but in fact named for the local Clinton Baker family.
