    Was really surprised at the fabulous outdoor set up the team have in place. The pub has a new management team in place. The garden has lots of tables, nicely spread out, social distancing adhered to. There's a big marquee in the middle with lovely straw bales to give a country setting feel. As it was a sunny day most of the tables had been brought out into the sun, but you could retain your table in the shade if you wished. Little slow service on drinks, but it was only their 2nd weekend back open, and it was busy due to having such a big garden / outdoor space, so no grumbles really. Loved the outdoor BBQ kitchen, seeing all the chefs with their chef whites on, preparing your food was great. Overall over-exceeded our expectations, will def return.

    Great concept - lovely garden area with children’s climbing frame and tables both outside and under a large awning. The food is fantastic as you would expect from the pedigree of Vanilla in Allseasons with a good choice of meat, fish and vegetarian options with sides and sauces/dips to complement. Efficient, friendly staff and adherence to Covid distancing and sanitising. Can definitely recommend.

    As expected the food was absolutely delicious and the staff were friendly. Couldn’t ask for a better menu and the seating set up for social distancing outside was great. Slightly disappointed that we were sat for 30mins with empty plates and glasses before someone approached and offered us dessert, but as a new staff I’m sure they’ll work out a system. Can’t wait to come back when the pub can open indoors!

    This is by far one of the best country pubs we have been to in a while. The new owners definitely know how to cook a Sunday roast along with great service. Visited with my family on Sunday and could not have asked for a better experience under the current circumstances of 2020. We will definitely be retuning . Thank you

    We knew the food would be good because we have eaten at their pop up restaurant before they opened here and they catered our wedding 6 years ago which was superb. It was a tremendous Sunday lunch; all 3 courses were delicious, beautifully prepared and served. The staff are attentive and friendly and the ambience is nice. We would definitely recommend this pub for fabulous food and for the security of knowing that it is clean, sanitised and COVID aware - hand sanitiser on entering, track and trace forms to be filled out, masks to be worn on entering and moving around and even small hand sanitiser bottles on each table. All the staff wear masks and they are very careful when serving your food and drinks. Book a table whilst you still can.
