    Yet again another delicious Sunday lunch at this gem of a place. Andy and his staff always make you feel so welcome with a cheery smile and friendly atmosphere. The food here is just amazing, all freshly cooked to order, and prob one of the best Sunday lunches I’ve ever had. Yes maybe slightly on the pricey side, but hey, so worth it in every way. Thank you guys again for a fabulous time with you, hope to see you again soon. 👍🤗

    Andy and his team were super accommodating when I had to move my booking twice due to airport delays at Stansted. I requested a lovely table for a special occasion and they really looks after us. The staff are attentive and seem to have genuine camaraderie. I’m not usually in the area but if anyone is looking for a warm, friendly pub with great food, this is the place to be. Thank you Andy and Team. Rory and I are going strong - thank you for sending your love our way.
