Service was attentive and friendly and the ambience and setting was delightfully intimate and rustic. A wonderful evening and highly recommended

    The food was very good - excellent quality and beautifully cooked. We did have to ask for Yorkshire pudding, as one plate arrived without it - it also arrived without stuffing but that was no great loss. The staff were friendly and polite. The restaurant was noisy as the table next to ours had very loud women seated there. The restaurant is very compact and so, the tables are close together. Our table looked as if it had been an 'add-on' and we felt 'in the way'.

    Lovely pub tucked away in Cambridgeshire. Plenty of parking. We ate near the bar area which was warm and cosy. Service good and food good. My husband had fillet steak which he said was amazing. My scampi and chips was nice. All in all a very pleasant night.

    Restaurant very nice, clean, laid out nicely and friendly staff. Starters were great and the main Sunday Roast was very nice. If I’m to be a little critical, I found the Roast Beef a little on the chewy side and very thinly cut, but that doesn’t detract from a lovely meal.

    Does a mean Roast and the best thing is they give you extra gravy without asking. For desert I have a pear and apple biscoff crumble with custard which was also very tasty.

    I hadn't been here for years, but I was really impressed. I came for a late new year dinner with friends and we were warmly welcomed. They weren't at all concerned about me bringing the dog and just moved us from the dining room, which is dog free, to the bar. The lamb shank was delicious and the curry outstanding. We followed this with a shared Eton mess, which was out of this world. Will definitely go again.

    We were very happy with the choices available on the menu. Quality and presentation of food were both good. The area in which we sat was a little cool for the time of year. The noise level was just right, except when a diner at another table insisted on having a telephone conversation on speakerphone which apart from being annoying was very bad mannered.

    As we had ordered in advance and was given a specific time we felt the service was slow. We had two children with us who got very agitated waiting for food. We felt 45 mins for the mains was a long time. Not much veg with the roasts.

    I was looking for a central meeting place for lunch with a friend (we live about an hour away in opposite directions) so always tricky finding a good pub online that’s open on a Monday! How lucky were to find the Hole in the Wall. Cosy atmosphere, good food, attentive staff. We will definitely be back! 😊
