Very interesting experience we had a horse box. Clean, open and cosy with an electric heater for the cooler evenings. Food was excellent and bar staff very helpful. We booked an evening theatre performance at the barn outside. Watched the Morris dancers too. All in all, excellent.

Ours was an experience that we are keen to repeat at the earliest opportunity. We chose to eat outside which was a delight, but shall go for inside next time to explore.
Excellent choice on the menu, beautifully presented dishes and scrumptious. Service was bright, attentive and efficient. We just want to go again, simple as that!

Lovely historic pub. Generally good food but let down on both occasions we dined by some of the vegetables being way undercooked. Carrots and thicker pieces of broccoli inedible. Lovely staff and surroundings.

We booked a table for inside. When we arrived, since it was a nice evening, we decided to eat in one of the areas outside. They were very accommodating with our request.
The waitress was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our meal. All in all, we had a very pleasant evening.

Fabulous historic pub. Imaginative use of space outside with open fronted marquees and horse boxes. Gorgeous building inside and out. Food fine.

We were fortunate to have decent weather to sit outside. The pub was really busy at 6:30 so we did have to wait a long time. The steak and ale pie was delicious. Would recommend if you are in the area

Great location and super staff. Last time we were there we had a great Sunday roast. Less good this time - perhaps because it was 5 pm and the roasts were at the tail end.

Very enjoyable experience. Such an amazing place to eat. Very nice to meet and chat with the Landlord about the history. Really appreciated hearing tales of the old Landlady who ran the pub and her 'shoes'.

Excellent service and amazing food. We had two starts which we shared which were lovely and a perfect start to the wonderful mains and deserts that followed. Very friendly and welcoming staff and a cozy setting to spend a pleasant evening.

It was very interesting to eat in such a historical venue. The service was excellent. I had the vegan pie which was absolutely delicious. The only downside is that as I am on holiday I won’t be able to visit again.

The pies are amazing as are the other dishes. It's just a shame there is not more choice for vegans and vegetarians. The service is always very good and it's not noisy so you can talk to people.

Beautiful place to spend our anniversary dinner. Love the pub and the food. Only gave 4* because the service wasn't great. We repeatedly asked for water and it eventually turned up when we'd finished our meal. Also we had to ask for more milk as they only brought out 1 tiny jug for 2 drinks (this also took ages to turn up).

Warm welcome, pleasant staff but table provided for 3 was too small and although the food was ok the pizzas had far too much strong cheese on them and the olives, bread and dip had more stale bread than fresh which was disappointing. Drinks were fine and staff were efficient. Pub is full of original features and provides a lovely experience.

Great place to eat, that is children friendly. Food and staff were great.

All pies are delish!!

Would benefit from the children’s swings being reinstated.

We loved the horse box too!

Thanks.

Individual horse boxes to dine in in the orchard - how lovely! The food was very tasty and I would definitely recommend. The only one thing we could have done with is for the heater to work as it was slightly chilly without the sun. Will return for sure.
