Reviewed 31 July 2014

On holiday in the area however I thought I would pop in for a evening meal. Very disappointed I had beef pie which was sliced roast beef raw carrots roast potatoes and capped with pastry. They say its a new freash menu sorry left overs. Nice ale.

“Came across this by chance, Excellent meal!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We came across this by chance as we were driving this way. Nice location looking on to the Green. New landlord, of only four weeks. Very freindly and welcoming. Menu was very exciting and not what you would expect in a pub restaurant. It has a french feel to it and the landlord is the chef and has worked in a number of upmarket restaurants.. We had a first class excellent meal, food was amazing, good value and the new landlord/ couple were friendly and attentive.

“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Walked up to door to hear t.v blaring Aerosmith at full blast. Nearly walked away but decided to sit in the garden overlooking lovely green. 3 bar staff, but only youngish girl serving. Found menu on bar as the two guys totally ignored me. Went back to order, still 3 staff but as girl was serving no acknowledgement that I was there. Finally the older guy said ' yew alwight' he took my order for food which was entered on the screen by the girl, the guy then told me that's £14.85, without asking me about drinks. The effort was too much for him as he went out for a smoke break. The girl did all the work and was friendly and efficient. Waited for order to arrive without much hope that it would be edible, but when it arrived it was served on slate and looked really good, which it was.£ 4.95 is a very good price for chicken baguette with salad and frites (yes frites) Our party of three all had the chicken baguette and agreed that the food was surprisingly good.

Please, please turn the t.v. down, and acknowledge customers. Food and pub garden very nice.
