Went here for my birthday. Lunchtime meal with my wife and out two friends (one of which was also celebrating his birthday too)
Lovely looking pub. Good parking round the back.
Pub itself was quite busy. Lots of people and quite a few well behaved dogs.
They sell a nice (but small) range of beers. Wine seemed a good selection.
The lady that owns the pub is the woman finalist from the great British menu (on BBC1) - Emily Watkins)
I had a rabbit sausage for starters and a pigeon for main. It was excellent. The others had a selection of bar snacks for their starters and they all had steak for main. I had some of their steak and it was delicious.
The food is cooked via sous vide method which is cooking in a water bath. This means the steak is cooked through consistently and therefore it appears rarer than normal. So if you don't like your steaks pink you'll want it done a bit more. Probably best to discuss with your waiting staff. My wife had it rare and it was absolutely devine.
The staff were great. Even had a couple of birthday cards on our table.
They leave you to take your time and extremely knowledgable. With such great food I was expecting a chunky bill but it was only £40 per head. That included several pints and wines. I was very happy to pay that.
I will most certainly be coming back here. My meal was 100% perfect.
