    Good quality food, well priced, with a good selection and nice and hot. Good selection of beers too. There was a minor mistake with the delivery of one of our dinners (wrong pie was cooked), but I was happy to wait the 20 mins for the correct one to be cooked and that wasn't a problem, so that is why only 4 stars for the service, otherwise faultless. I didn't ask for any reduction, but we were informed when the bill came that they hadn't charged for it, which I thought was very thoughtful, so i tipped accordingly. Would definetely use again if in the area and can happily recommend it to anyone, especially the pies.

    Four of us had lunch and we all went for the pies. I cannot recommend them strongly enough. I had the the Steak and Stilton and it was full of steak in a rich gravy. One of our party had the steak and kidney in suet pastry, it was very well received, but only order if you have a good appetite as it was huge. A good selection of real ales and wine by the glass.

    We had a great time. A lovely country pub with lots of character and the food was delicious. The kids shared a pizza and a dessert as the servings were big. Servers were lovely too. Would definitely return.

    Great all round. Only issue is reversing out of a very tight driveway to the car park which was so full we couldn’t turn round …. Great sign as the pub was busy, happy, and buzz y! We were in the restaurant which was quieter but was perfect for a girls catch up!

    The food was outstanding but after 40 minutes nobody had taken our order and had to be promoted. Had to then wait for food, I am aware it was busy but it would be helpful to be told that there would be a long wait. As a result we did not order desserts. We would return but probably not at a Saturday lunchtime

    A marvellous building in a beautiful village - a perfect venue for a perfect lunch. And the food - such taste! All six of us are looking forward to returning for another treat as soon as possible.
