The Pointer came highly recommended, and did not disappoint. This is British pub food executed to an extraordinarily high standard. Suet steak and kidney pie was rich and meaty, while the upmarket Ling had a crispy batter and delicious chips. Great quality ingredients expertly prepared. Starters were good too, especially the beautifully smooth chicken liver pate. Portions were just right. Service was knowledgable and exemplary. Will definitely go back.

We had a really lovely family meal. It was a bit echoey due to an absence of curtains to absorb the noise (we had elderly relatives with us). Great food and service and would highly recommend. Lots of lovely touches throughout. Water in abundance too. The staff were brilliant.

As expected the food and service were truly excellent.
The hay-baked lamb was a masterpiece (did request mint sauce but it wasn't forthcoming).
Only criticism is the price of a gin and tonic - £9.50 - extortionate!
Will return ......

This was our second visit and the food was as good as we remembered- absolutely delicious. there is literally nothing on the starter and mains menu which isn't a delight.
It was a couple of months since we had been and the only slight niggle was the puddings, which are quite limited in choice and they had not altered at all. We had treacle tart last time which is ok but you wouldn't order again - quite dry. The service was a little tired too and considering we had specified on the booking this was a 21st celebration (the booking form asked) one would have expected acknowledgement of this or even a little amuses from the kitchen for the birthday girl. We don't like overfussy service but at the same time one didn't feel entirely valued as a customer.
Having said all that we will go back - for the food which is outstanding.

The Pointer is a great find. We had Mother’s Day there with a small child and the service was great despite it being busy. The food was priced for the occasion I think but it was delicious and my dad especially liked the ‘driver’s’ drink menu. We had a great time and will definitely be going back.

We went as a group of four for my birthday.... the food was gorgeous, the restaurant is set in a lovely country pub. The menu consisted of mainly produce from the butchers next door, I had the pork and it was delicious and I was certainly not disappointed with my choice! .... will definitely be returning well worth the drive.

It is a lovely restaurant in a country pub. The food is mostly from the farm that’s part of the pub as is the butchers next door.
It’s probably more expensive than other similar pubs in the area it’s good value for money
Give it a try - you will be pleased

Weave dined here previously in the evening. This time (for lunc h) was disappointing as we were looking cforward to the chef's special treat of an Amuse Bouche butc there was none! Why do the lun ch timers not get it - we eat off the same menu! However, meal was delightful as usual.

A nice convivial old pub, complete with comfortable chairs and roaring fire in a pretty village , it also has a nice garden at the side.

We had an enjoyable lunch there, though we found the first course of salmon rather lacking In seasoning. and rather bland. The venison was delicious as was the desert. Good wines are on offer at variable prices and some by the glass.

Prices are moderately high for some of the main courses.

Altogether though,an enjoyable visit

Really lovely venue, with a great atmosphere and wonderful food and a great wine list. They prepare excellent food based on fresh local produce.

It ws really nice to sit with an aperitif in the cosy bar area before moving in to the restaurant. Nice touches like an amuse bouche and fresh bread with beef butter, which was the highlight among many sublime tastes.

Simply excellent....food and service couldn't be faulted.....
If I was being really picky I would say the noise from other tables did carry a bit which was annoying....that was down to individuals tho more than the seating arrangements.
