Very good! Potentially a little too busy though? Our table seemed a little squeezed in

Couldn’t fault a thing! Service was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. From the cocktail to the coffee, our experience of the sustainable approach to local food and drinks was the best that I have experienced. Seasonal food and locally sourced meat and ingredients was impressive. I will be returning and recommending to family and friends.

My wife had venison cottage pie which she thought was too bland in flavour; could have had a richer gravy. My main was perhaps a little lacking in quantity.
When booking (online) I was asked what was the occasion, and I replied birthday. I thought perhaps that a candle or something celebratory would have been provided, otherwise what is the point of asking the reason for visit.
However, the ambience and service was excellent.

We’re local and often call in for coffee or tea but decided to try PHKG a try for dinner on a Saturday night.
The menu is quite short but varied and the food was delicious. The service was the perfect balance of friendly but intrusive. Great wine list too.
Definitely one to recommend.

Wonderful venue! We love this place....we even had our wedding reception here! As usual, the lunch for three of us was very good. My husband had a prawn starter which he said was excellent. I had ( unusual for me ) a beef burger. The bun was light and melted in the mouth, the beef was delicious and the bacon and cheese of a really good quality. My friend had a tender lamb shank and husband cod with mussels. We followed with pudding of sticky toffee and lemon posset....needless to say all very delicious.

We have been meaning to visit for months so there was always a danger that Pythouse would disappoint. Thankfully not! Beautiful setting and a fantastic room, artfully decorated with pumpkins for the autumn. The food was delicious especially the terrine but star of the show was the autumn cocktail!

This was our second visit to Pythouse inside of a week, having only just discovered it. On both occasions the food was great and the service excellent.

Pity the weather the second time didn't allow for a walk around the gardens.

Lovely atmosphere. First time visiting an evening supper. Set menu but you can tell them if you allergic or don't eat something. Lovely cocktail and canapes. The main halibut and creamy mash was lovely although mash was cold . The vegetables were slightly uncooked and abit to salty. Pudding of figs and honey with mascarpone was delious overall would recommend and would return

Scallops starter was delicious l!
Went a little downhill from there.
Maybe because we booked for 2:30?
We had the smoked salmon with potatoes and celeriac & apple salad.
Too much sauce / butter smothered the potatoes and parts of fish which made it inedible. I mentioned this as I hadn’t eaten it but no response tbh. Side order of charred sweet corn was not crisp as it should be but mushy?

Beautiful food in a stunning secluded setting. Sadly service was a little slow & was told chips came with the fish cakes & therefore not necessary to order extra. But when the fish cakes came there where no chips!! We had to ask for them & my husband had already eaten one of his fish cakes before they arrived!
Pythouse is a bit of a hidden gem which has its attraction however it doesn’t help when you are trying to find it & the satnav doesn’t help much.
It would be worthwhile to have signage out on the country roads

On a surprisingly sunny day in September it was a real pleasure to sit out in the garden and eat good quality food with a nice glass of wine. It really is a beautiful place and the outdoor cooking added something else to make it very special. We will make sure we spend more time there from now on!

A lovely setting for a special reunion and we enjoyed a walk round the impressive garden beforehand. The site and smell of the barbecue on the way in had our mouths watering! All the staff were polite and welcoming and the food certainly did not disappoint! We will be back!

Was a beautiful setting and very unique decor. However we waited an hour and 20 minutes for our main course, when it did arrive it was cold and had to be sent back. The waiting staff were very apologetic and took money off our bill. I would still visit again in the hope of a better experience as it is a lovely venue.

We were generally pleased with our first visit and enjoyed the ambience of a country kitchen. Very good service, customer care and a wide ranging menu. The downside was that three of us changed our preferred main course as the beef was apparently a little tough following an observation from another guest. My wife changed her choice to the chicken choice but found the chicken breast somewhat dry. I had the pork belly, which was outstanding!

Our two lady guests were not taken by the trip to the ladies room a) with little lighting along the route (the same for the trip back to the car on departure) and b) not the best of facilities in our travels. Not sure how this would work min winter.

However, we will return again. Thank you to the very nice and caring lady who looked after our table.

This is our second time dining at the garden and we will be back again! The food is fresh and nicely cooked and good portions too! We have eaten inside twice but the outside dining looks great for a larger party or family. Our only small complaint was we had to wait quite a long time for our puddings as you were very busy, plus the mozzarella wasn’t on the starter but arrived later with an apology!

I like very much that you are dog friendly and eating in the marquee was excellent with my puppy.
The waiter was charming helpful and friendly but the service was a little slow. There seemed to be a long wait between courses.

My husband and I took our 6 year old granddaughter and elderly mother for lunch on Monday. The food seemed to all be smoked, even the salad dressing- just too much. My granddaughter and I are vegetarian and not fond of the the oft offered goats cheese, so had limited options. The service was very poor, not enough team on, and all very distracted, we had to ask for everything at least 4 times, even simple things like bread or water. It was unbearably hot inside, and we were kindly allowed to move outside and have our desserts- which took 45 minutes to come, but were excellent. The location is idyllic and as keen veg growers, we all loved the concept of cooking what’s ready in the garden. My husband and I will certainly come again, knowing what to expect food wise, and hopefully the service will be less chaotic.

An unusual menu infused with the garden. My chicken and bacon garden salad was delicious, as was my friend's mackerel. Lovely atmosphere and walking through the flower and vegetable garden afterwards really magical. Went on a week day. Loved it.
