I had been looking forward to eating at The St Edmunds Tavern having heard only good things about the food, but I left a little disappointed.
I chose warm Camembert with crunchy vegetables and bread for starter and Steak and Ale pie with mash and veg for my main.
I found the camembert rather mild and the two slices of bread were I think taken from a pre-sliced loaf.
The pie was very tasty, but I was rationed with the snap peas and beans which was a pity because they were nice too.
I feel that a good way to judge a meal is if you are tempted to buy a pudding after the first two courses. On this occasion I wasn't.
Overal it was slightly overpriced, about £25 per head with a couple of drinks but no puddings.

The lady who owned the B&B we were at recommended the King Edmund, and I was so pleased she did. It was an excellent experience- food, service, building were all wonderful.

Atmospheric old half timbered building, worth a visit in and of itself, and the food was really good. My husband had a steak that actually smelled good from my side of the table, and I had a pumpkin and ginger pasta dish that was delicious. Even my meat & potatoes husband stole a bite when I was busy looking at my surroundings.

Service was also very attentive and caring.I got the impression that the lady who served us really wanted us to enjoy ourselves and enjoy the meal. Prices were more than reasonable for the quality of the food.

Definitely an A+.
