Went for the Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. The yorkshire pudding was a joy to behold and also to eat. The staff were lovely and we were wanting for nothing. Will definitely be back.

Well what a fantastic find - was away in cheddar on holiday and disappointed this place isn’t near where I leave - can’t fault it for anything - fantastic friendly staff and attentive and engaging - food was delicious home cooked and perfect touch with the little amuse bouche from the chef with their compliments - was a busy vibe and also efficiently run - excellent value for money as well - I would recommend this to anyone staying locally or living locally but I would book its popular and I this review states all the reasons why

We couldn’t fault it. Such a gem of a place, with excellent food for both breakfast and dinner. Lots of choice, generous portion sizing and friendly attentive staff. We also stayed over and the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. We would highly recommend to anyone who is in the area.

Food was absolutely delicious. We both had 3 courses and they were all presented well, really flavoursome and you could tell the ingredients were top quality. Service was excellent and the ambiance was lovely.
We would be frequent diners if we lived locally!

We are very lucky to have this restaurant in our village. In the home counties it would be called a gastro pub. There is a normal pub menu which is fine but they also do a specials menu which is truly good food and at a very reasonable price for the quality of the food. And you can have a good pint of beer with it too. And the staff are all very well trained and the service excellent. Long may it continue
