Enjoyed a midweek meal here with my wife for her birthday all very nice
Food cooked to order and all came back as ordered a rarity nowadays.
I would have given them 5 stars but for 2 slip ups,
1/ when serving cold drinks apply a beer mat underneath or you have a wet table and
2/ when serving a basket of garlic bread ( nicely presented) don't forget the plates that go with it, we all don't stuff it in our mouths in one go LOL.
Will I come back, Yes, I visited just before Christmas when the roof was off for repairs and sat around heaters and the food has improved even more since that visit, which I did not think possible .
So keep up the good work and remember that small details matter

What a great place to eat, Husband & Wife team & what a team......, Wife runs front of the house (what a lovely lady) & Husband is the chef & a great cook, he knows his stuff, every dish tasted lovely, the kids finished all the food & so did we, everything is made fresh so if you don't want certain ingredient in your food, no problem .... one of the kids wanted pasta there was mushroom in the pasta & we asked it to be made without mushroom & guess what there was no rolling of the eye that you usually get or sorry the sauce is already made up...... he got told what ever you want how ever you want it we will make it & THEY DID..... we all loved the menu, so much choice. I WISH we lived nearer to this place & we will go again when we go near there again.
you have to go to this place. 10 out of 10

We visited this pub with our 2 families on a Saturday night having found it difficult to satisfy our "pescatorian" diets at a reasonsble cost in nearby town of Pershore.
We found it to be a really nice pub with top class cuisine. All food was cooked to order and really well presented with good sized portions. Prices were not too high at around £10 per main course and £4/£6 per starter or dessert. There was a good choice of standard pub favourites as well as some more upmarket and imaginative choices of starters mains and desserts. It was the first time I've experienced sole veronique in many years...a lovely hark back to the 70's & 80's. The pub was a great find and VERY reasonably priced too. The husband and wife were really helpful and bar staff very friendly. Would definitely visit again.

The owners of this restaurant / pub are really friendly and welcoming, ordered steak and chips, so many places ruin a good steak but not here, couldn't have been cooked any better, great portion size. I had room for a pudding so sticky toffee pudding couldn't be turned down and again was not disappointed. Good ale selection as well.
Definitely a place to revisit.
