My boyfriend decided he'd like to eat here for his birthday meal after a recommendation from a friend. We made a night of it and were glad we made effort to dress smartly as this is not your average village pub. The service was very quick and warm and friendly even the kitchen staff were welcoming. We were most definitely wined and dined and thoroughly enjoyed every bite of the delicious food served to us. The bar staff were even more than happy to make me some frilly cocktails and allowed us to be at our leisure. It was a beautiful country setting, with delicious food and great service. It was reasonably priced even for such a fine dining experience. We will definitely be back!!
