We travelled across county for a family Boxing Day lunch. We had booked and said we had Percy, our dog (of indeterminate lineage), which meant we were seated in the very busy, but not uncomfortably so, main bar. Log fire burned, large tables of families, proper pub decor and atmosphere. The place was, as one would expect, heaving. The delightful staff - mostly young and plainly part-time - were well trained, attentive and very jolly - it was the Festive Season after all! The food arrived quickly and efficiently, as did our rather complicated drinks order (2 types of gin, a Bloody Mary, and a bottle of craft beer). The menu was high-end pub food (as opposed to Gastro-pub) and absolutely delicious, generous portions (after Christmas, may have been too generous! but who cared) and well presented. Puddings are a must. A lovely find, and a lovely situation. Sadly Boxing Day was very wet so we did not walk anywhere. But it did look like lunch could be walked off via some lovely walks nearby. Will return in the summer.
