Met some American friends here for a meal. We didn't book a table and the pub was pretty busy but they managed to accommodate 8 of us for Sunday lunch which was great. Nice surroundings with quirky ornaments and art!

We all ordered a roast dinner (chicken or beef, with a veggie option too) and the beef was delicious, there was plenty of it too. It was served with roast potatoes, vegetables and a gorgeous gravy. All very tasty!

Some of the kids had a dessert (grasshopper pie) which they said was good too.

the beers, wines and cider was sampled by us all and we had a really good afternoon here.

A must visit and stay. The rooms are an experience not just somewhere to sleep. You can see Kirk and Louise have great pride in seeing their guests go " wow" when they walk in. Breakfast was continental and very fresh and finally somewhere with espresso. We are already considering another trip back because the stay itself is an experience. It's a short taxi/car ride to the city about 5 min but if you don't want to got out they also have a small country pub.

If you want a nice meal don't come here! Antipasti starter was rubbish and over priced - tiny tiny little pots of random stuff - guacamole, hummus, salsa, some horrible cheese and some pitta and meats - the olives were ok! Mains- scampi on its own in a bowl £9!!! So you have to order side chips-they just tasted of fat however much cheap ketchup I used, and so not a good meal overall with no peas, salad, nothing to go with scampi! Veggie tart (with chips! ;-) looked ok but I was told wasn't good either. All in all a massive rip off and disappointing meal out - we're off to sainsburys on the way home now to make up for it with chocolate and ice cream. I hope the owner will read this and rethink! Its not right that places like this think they can get away with this sort of offering at such ridiculous prices!

I don't usually expect much at lunch time in an out of town centre pub - but this was excellent. Fabulous presentation, great flavours (I recommend the home-made tart if available) and wonderful puddings (grasshopper pie was delicious).

Everything was home made and it showed. Probably the best pub lunch I've had in a long time.
