    Really lovely atmosphere and professional service . Our food was good and we enjoyed it, pate was amazing, and we were brought extra bread and crackers! Roast could have been a little hotter! Otherwise we would recommend!

    The staff were excellent as was the food and drink. The room was excellent with all the facilities one would require. The only minor issues were the green emergency light above the bed which was extremely bright, therefore not conducive to easily going to sleep, and the bathroom was exceptionally hot. Apart from these two very minor issues we had an excellent experience.

    We always have a lovely meal here. Some may say pricey but you get what you pay for. I’m a vegetarian so I do struggle a little with choice but my husband loves the pie they do. He gets it each time he goes. It’s steak. The food coming out from the kitchen is beautifully presented. The staff and attentive and courteous. I really like it here. Decor is lovely and the location is away from the hustle and bustle it’s in a little beautiful hamlet

    Menu excellent. Lots of game. All fresh and perfectly cooked. Ambience was lovely. Busy but relaxed. Roaring log fire and country decor. Perfect for a cold January evening. Service was let down by one of the waiters who brought our drinks twice and on both occasions didn’t know what was on his tray. He blamed the colleague who had prepared the drinks! The waitress who welcomed us and took our order was excellent. Friendly and efficient.

    Previously we have always had a good meal here but unfortunately not so on Saturday night. Table was booked for 7pm and main course not served until 9! One of our party had sauté potatoes with her pie which were completely burned! But someone had actually turned them over on the plate so that they were burnt side down! The pie was also burnt one side. The meal was sent back and a new meal of fish and chips was brought, which was rather small to say the least. All the meals were a little below what we would normally expect here. Our waiter dealt with our complaint very well. This will not put us off going again, I think they were just too busy and probably shouldn’t have accepted the booking. Chef maybe a bit under experienced on Saturday too!!

    The JR is set in outstanding countryside. It is well maintained, and a pleasure to spend time there. The staff are friendly, the property is very well kept, and the food is better than the average pub food by a long way.

    The pheasant was seriously over cooked, indeed burnt, and the broccoli had been put under heating to the extent that some of it was inedible. It caused us to leave before desserts.

    My wife and I had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Jack Russell pub. Food was very good, we both had roast lamb for main. Puddings were divine. Good ambience in the pub and love that you can take dogs although we left ours at home this time. Service good, only minor comment being that we did not get enough mint sauce and had to request more. Also, as an electric car user it was great to see the car charging point that was free to use. We will definitely be coming back for another visit soon.
