The food was amazing and the service fantastic, my husband let the chef choose his meals and the chef couldn’t have done better. The quality of the food was so good, it looks a little odd from the outside when you first arrive but don’t let the country pub look out you off! Definitely worth it!

Delicious food but can’t warrant the prices for what is a locals’ pub. If the price point was just a bit lower then it would become a regular haunt. Admittedly we we there during pumpkin carving and noise was ridiculous, but it is still vastly overpriced. Such a shame. A meal for two, no desserts and only two drinks was £80.

Lovely Sunday lunch, the only thing that could have been improved was the temperature of the food, which wasn’t piping hot by the time it arrived at the table, the plates probably could have been hotter. Good quality ingredients, cooked well and service was great. Would go again, it was a very good Sunday pub lunch and was good value for 3 courses.

Lovely rare roast beef Sunday lunch with masses of vegetables and delicious gravy. We spent £150 for four people but considered it good value for excellent mains, desserts and plenty of drinks. Service was quick, friendly and polite. Stayed for hours!

Excellent fresh ingredients in all the menu which made it taste awesome!
Value for money was excellent to. We had the 3course lunch menu.

I’m such a fan of the FF! As a vegan I’m frequently disappointed by the lack of imagination and flavour in the food I’m given. Not here! David excelled himself with a potato and mushroom risotto as a start, delicately flavoured and beautifully seasoned. The main a harissa-spices chick pea filo wrap was scrummy. The poached pear with pistachios offered a refreshing dessert. Well fed and well please as always. The meat options are outstanding too!

This restaurant has the makings of being very good but lacks some finesse.
Only 2 staff running both the bar and tables.
Website shows a tasting menu but doesn’t mention that you need to prebook this.
Food was very good, beautifully served and fair priced.
The decor was mixed - a confusion between restaurant/ bistro/ bar. Entering from the car park was a scruffy corridor.
We enjoyed our visit but felt the owners need to decide where to pitch the menu and ambience - fine dining or pub grub

Really tasty food, well presented and good value. I really enjoyed the goats cheese and beetroot starter, and my chicken ballotine main was delicious too. My husband had the home cured salmon then the pork, and there were clean plates all round. Cheese board was basic but tasty, and the caramel mousse was a bit too much of one thing for me, but I was quite full by that point! Highly recommended
