4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Overlooking a splendid 9 hole golf course which is terrific value this restaurant is very popular with the local farming community, always a good sign. Very generous portions of well cooked hot food and good value. Friendly helpful staff. Well worth a visit.

“Fabulous homemade food, wonderful service, lovely place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

I found the service cracking, attentive and warm. The food was second to none. The meat was locally sourced and the puddings are lovingly homemade and a delight on the taste buds. I certainly will visit again and I would recommend anybody a visit.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Me and my boyfriend dined here on Sunday the 25th of May. I had chicken in a mushroom and onion sauce. the chicken was lovely and moist and the sauce was delicious. My boyfriend had Steak pie and homemade chips. He got a generous portion of steak pie and it was packed with tender steak. He said it was the best steak pie he had ever had. And the chips were PROPER homemade chips. The staff were friendly and helpful. Its fair to say one of the best meals we have both had for a long time. And highly recommend it.

“Nice surrounding shame about the food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

This is the second time we have been here.The first time the meal was not up to much quite cold and over cooked salmon.
I never wrote a review as I thought it unfair to be critical maybe it was just a bad night and they were changing chefs.
We went on a Wednesday mid may evening very quiet.
I had steak pie and chips and was expecting it to take a while as the pastry has to cook and brown as it is supposed to be fresh.Cost £10.95 so not cheap.The meal came within 15 mins hardly time to warm the oven never mind cook pastry.The pie was very large served with a good portion of chips and the pie was full of beef.The beef was very tender but a little dry and totally without any seasoning .Well that's the good bit! The pastry was pale and totally soggy and without taste .In my opinion it had been microwaved and stuck on a plate worst pie I have ever tasted they would of been better going to Greggs and serving that.
The chips were not home cooked and if they were then whoever cooked them needs a catering course.These were frozen chips and again tasteless and cheap ones horrible greasy aftertaste
I played with it for a while thinking this pastry could be the stuff they use to make Wallis and gr omit characters .
I also had carrots which were fine and also peas which again were frozen but not nice frozen peas again tasteless.
The surrounding are very very nice and the staff also were as you expect very friendly and ready to please.I would suggest change the chef, cook fresh food ,and serve home made chips and never ever forget to season food maybe then this place will again be as popular as it was in the 90s and it was very popular and well run.
SORRY BUT THIS WAS THE WORST MEAL I CAN EVER REMEMBER HAVING
