I ate in the bar area as I was dining alone and wanted a pub atmosphere.
The server was very friendly and accommodating as were the guys behind the bar.
The house bitter was very agreeable though I was a little underwhelmed by the selection of red wine served by the glass: the cab sauv was now only served by the bottle and the other variety I enjoy was nearly a tenner for the glass so I had a (average) merlot.
The beef Sunday lunch was good with plenty of meat.
The bar was busy with a nice vibe. There were plenty of dogs in that area and a number of children. There was noise but all the kids were well-behaved and there wasn’t any children running around.

I’m sure that I’ll return.

Nice pub in a nice village - the dining room(s) and menu read well, but the execution of the food could be a bit better. Everything fresh and looked good but it was a bit bland and greasy, but better than most pre-prepared pub grub.

Delicious food , we ate at the bar and although the menu not massive the food is absolutely Devine!!! Kids and adults alike fed - just yummy. Had a few dogs in but we love dogs but a couple a little yappie but apart from that ambience just right very busy and cosy.

Great food. Great atmosphere. Superb service. Only comment is the prawn cocktail sauce was a little thin and tasteless. All other food was brilliant.

The Stamford was brilliant, the service was absolutely awesome. The colleagues really looked after our family, they were so lovely with our colleagues.
The restaurant looked beautiful so festive & the food options and the quality of food was to a very high standard.
I would highly recommend

Great atmosphere and a lovely room to eat in. The food is of good quality. However the roast dinner was piled onto the plate in such a way that half of the plate was actually empty. I rearranged it all and it looked quite appetising, a shame that my initial reaction was 'what a mess'. A friend ordered the 'foot long sausage roll' expecting a big sausage roll - but it was a quite ordinary sausage in a bread roll.
The food is fresh and well cooked, it just needs a little more attention paying to the presentation.

Loved it! The background music was a little loud to start with (we WERE sitting under a speaker) but it was turned down on request by the lovely team there. Portions were a good size (but not stupidly oversized) and it was great to have the dog right by us.

Great pub but let down by food, menu is trying to hard. Was also disappointed with the lack of Gluten Free options considering it’s local competition and what they offer, I won’t be going back again for food.

Wine is also over priced. It seems prices have increased due to area shame really.

The landlord and his staff are always so attentive and make you feel like you really do matter.

The pub is exactly what a pub should be.

I love it here.

We came after a walk on Sunday and all had the Sunday roast which was fresh and tasty. We liked that we could bring the dog with us and eat in the bar area. We will definitely come back.

Love this pub but was a bit disappointed with Sunday roast as to how usually served. No cauliflower cheese. No swede mash..... Waitress informed that now being served as a side order. At £14 or £14.95 this is on the top end for a pub roast and not impressed with paying extra for sides that were previously included. Turned a great roast into an average one all for making money on a side dish. Would reconsider eating on a Sunday here

The rugby was on so they were not serving food in the bar, we had a dog so couldn't go into the restaurant. They bent over backwards ensuring that we got a table sorted - they are always so lovely and do everything can to ensure you have the best experience.

Service was very pleasant however the food was very oily.
Children's portion of pasta in tomato sauce we initially commented that for our 8 year old girl of moderate appetite the portion size was too small and that the only solution was to buy her 2 meals which I thought was a very poor and non customer focused solution, I question therefore whether it was fresh or a ready meal set portio ? as we only wanted an extra spoonful. When it arrived the child's pasta meal tasted really salty and oily and we had to send it back. Our girl was offered an icecream as an apology but then we were charged for it on the bill!
The pub is lovely and the waitress was really pleasant about dealing with our complaint but I would definitely not recommend the food particularly as suitable for children given the saltiness and small portion size.

The food was delicious! But it’s a shame it was let down by the service. Once our food had come, nobody seemed to bother with us after that, no one asking if everything ok with our meals, no one asking if we needed more drinks (we only had the 1 drink we started with) or anything else. We sat waiting with our desert menus for ages, including a toilet trip with a toddler (which isn’t quick!) still no one came. We gave up and went over to the desk to ask to pay. We mentioned to the lady we gave up on deserts, but nothing was said... disappointed.
