The food here is superb. I like the fact that the menu isn't extensive as you know everything is freshly prepared.

Very nice place to eat, worth the trip had a lot of work done on the place and bought it up to date but with the country feel. Very nice staff and a good selection on the menu.
Would recommend for lunch or dinner. They also have a function room as well.

Flat iron steak was lovely, melted in the mouth - wasn't sure what to expect.
Lovely ambiance, great staff, very attentive.
Had food here before, have been pleasantly surprised every time.

Awesome Sunday lunch with real Yorkshire puddings and the banana waffles are so nice! It's great to be able to eat out with our dog, and there are even treats on the bar for her. We've been for breakfast and dinner too and it's always good.

a great find in the country near wrabness and manningtree. Really solid food, easy to park in the lot next to it, roaring fireplace, very fair prices, and board games- what more could one want!?!

Good food, well prepared. Beef was particularly good. Dog was allowed - an essential for us. Only negative was the window seat table in a draught when door opened. But we will use it pub again, soon, though book earlier to get better table location.

Been with friends before so returned with a different crowd, had a great meal ,good choices and excellent real ales. Only slightly marred as the Card machine didn't work and left a couple of us scrapping round for cash, otherwise a great night and we'll be back for sure

Sunday lunch was delicious, with VERY generous portions. Would've given them a higher rating for food, however the roast potatoes need improvement. Overall though, great value and will go back.

We had the best pub roast that we've had in a very long time. Really delicious! The service was very good and the staff were very accommodating. This pub was a great find and we'll definitely be back! Thank you.

Excellent country pub with nice buzz about it. Friendly staff, good real ale and excellent food. Well worth a visit, especially after a stroll along The Stour at Manningtree or a drive, cycle or walk in the local countryside.

Excellent food (apart from overcooked batter on fish and rock hard pastry on pie but still worth five stars).

Overall experience let down by dirty table (not cleaned from previous diners), generally didn't feel very clean where we sat and also one starter served on chipped plate.

Birthday treat for my 92 year old mother. Very welcoming and food was excellent.
Only disappointment was they did not have a sherry glass for my mother's sherry and they need to learn how to pull a pint of Guinness.
Other than that have absolutely no problem recommending to my family, friends and acquitances.

Had a traditional family Sunday lunch comprising roast beef/ lamb with all the trimmings. Food was of a high standard and good sized portions. Recent decorations have improved the ambience and nice open fire. Seemed more of a food pub than local. Staff were plentiful but had to wait a while for dessert and to pay. Pub was experiencing plumbing problems in the toilets on our visit which was a bit of a let down.
