                                              Good food - decent Sunday roast and very good desserts. Atmosphere was nice, efficient, friendly service and fantastic old pub surroundings. A god range of beers too if somebody else id driving.

                                              Been here for drinks but this was first time eating since current owners took over. We were all very impressed by the quality of the food. Bit more pricey than average pub grub but it is above average and it is worth it. Came for a family birthday with OAPs. Veggie food was delicious, only 2 options for veggies on the Saturday menu but we were very impressed by what came out. Staff welcoming. 100% recommend.

                                              So pleased to see this lovely pub busy again. Service was excellent. The menu needs a little work though, either extremely pricey options or the cheaper burger or fish & chip options but nothing in between. A few special mains choices at the £14/£15 mark would be good. Desserts were amazing though!! Thanks

                                              Lovely drive to an authentic village pub. Well run pub with friendly staff. Very good traditional and European food. Over and above usual pub grub. Strong local character of pub matched by staff.

                                              Excellent. Great service and good food in a nice airy setting. Try their twist on chicken and chips, y you won't be disappointed.

                                              Very helpful yet discreet staff. Good was excellent - we had Sunday lunch. We sat inside in the main dining room and then outside for coffee. Great experience - recommended!

                                              Excellent food and service, even on a quiet lunch time service was very good and you felt well looked after, the patron came and checked that everything was to our satisfaction and even pointed out there was free WIFI as the mobile signal is poor. Highly recommended

                                              Everything was good - service was attentive but food service took a long time from kitchen. Apart from that a great meal and will come again.

                                              The staff really worked very hard to give us a gorgeous experience in spite of unpleasant weather for outdoor eating. The chef made accommodations for us as vegetarians on the Heirloom tomato starter - which I was very grateful for as it was so delicious. The area outside was covered so we were protected from the raging wind and spitting rain.

                                              Great evening, the Landlord and staff couldn’t do enough. I was travelling in my VW Camper and the Landlord allowed me to park over night which was great as the draught ale was very nice.

                                              Menu apparently changes everyday so ignore the menu on the website and the app! How are your customers supposed to know what you’re offering beforehand? Good job we were not fussy eaters. However, Food was very good. The service was all over the place! The staff do not communicate with each-other (was only 4 other tables). Got asked if we had ordered 4 times by 4 different staff members and one older lady came across extremely rude like she didn’t want to be there (rather ungrateful considering many are out of work during Covid). They made a small error on the bill with the drinks, yet refused to honour that error and resulted in making me feel very silly for not remembering who served us our drinks, even though we had around 4 different servers. It’s their job to know this and work as a team, yet I was made to feel as though it was my fault they made the mistake. You can tell they lack competition in the area as management was short of professionalism and very rude. Arrogance and sarcasm does not make paying customers come back, a humble and respectful approach to customers goes a long way in business, yet unfortunately I don’t feel as though they have grasp that. Beautiful building with huge potential, such a shame.

                                              Recently moved to the area and very pleased to have such a great pub nearby. We sat outside in the back garden with views over the countryside. Large car park and easy to find. Great selection of ales and menu was really impressive with a talented chef in the kitchen. I had a longhorn beef burger and others had the buttermilk pheasant breast Caesar salad all washed down with a lovely selection of ice cream. Greeted warmly and welcomed by the owners - we look forward to returning soon

                                              Great welcome, small but perfectly adequate marquee, food was more posh and expensive than expected but superb. Lovely staff and excellent service. Would book again and hopefully the noisy loud people on the other 2 tables won't be there. Just annoys me when others are so inconsiderate to other diners, but a great pub.

                                              The VERY best fish & chips EVER !!!!! The Haddock perfectly moist - the beer batter light and crisp - the chips were golden & crunchy and actually tasted of potatoes ( hoorah ! ) The mushy peas made with fresh peas & mint. This chef is a genius !!!!! Will remember this meal for a long time and will definitely come back for more.

                                              Very nice historic country pub and with a large car park, a real gem. Excellent service and atmoshere. The menu is very good but we felt our smocked salmon needed somthing to accompany it, I asked for some lemon juice and it a while for them to find some. We also felt our roast beef was a bit tough which spoilt an otherwise excellent meal. We intend to go again.
