“Tasty veggie food with lots of choices”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

A great place to delight veggies and carnivores alike. There is a good choice of food on the menu as well as the specials board. Portions are manageable so you could fit in all three courses. At lunch time there is an amazing option of soup of the day with flavoured bread followed by dessert and all for £7! The decor is a little dull but don't let that put you off as the food is delicious and beautifully presented. Worth a country drive out.

Lovely food with so many delicious veggie options. Mint pea soup was delicious. Desserts were lovely. Definitely worth the drive and such a reasonable price. Three course meal with drinks £20 a head

“Midweek treat...”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Set in a country location this traditional inn has an unusual line in pub meals - the whole menu is strictly vegetarian; that said there is something to suit every taste. I noted that the menu contains vegan and gluten free dishes. Service is bright, cheerful and efficient. The surroundings are pleasant but not over-large so it would probably be sensible to book at weekends. Portions are generous and well presented and the quality was very good; from a personal perspective I would have appreciated a little more spice in the "Sweet Potato Stew" but it was very acceptable nevertheless. A nice touch is that you can also "take away" ready frozen portions of their meals.
Cards are accepted and alcohol free beer is available for the driver!

“Such a delicious meal - worth travelling for!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This was my second (and parents' third) trip to this pub and as previously it was excellent. Such lovely food -whether you're vegetarian or not - generous portions and really good value. I can't wait to come back later in the summer!
