All round really good, we were next to a large and quite noisy group that made it difficult to talk amongst ourselves but when they left it was great. Good food. Good service. Will go back.

This restaurant is superb! From the moment we walked in we got superlative service and the food and drink was of the highest quality. They have a marvellous Armagnac as well!

10 out of 10 - we’re going back for Sunday lunch!

Delighted to renew our acquaintance with the White Hart which filled in admirably for the Tilbury as it is closed on Mondays. Great start to the week courtesy of this late seasonal Board room lunch for 5 hungry people.

Excellent lunch, with a good menu. Very tasty and food well presented.

Only small problem was that one of our party was slightly disabled and does not walk very well. The steps down to the restaurant were a challenge. Don't know if with such an old property you are able to offer an easier access to the restaurant?

Enjoyed the visit, and will come again.

Having been a couple of times and enjoyed the food. On this occasion with friends and family in tow, we were really disappointed. Spider Crab burger so crispy You couldn’t tell it was crab and the dessert of Chocolate mousse that 3 of us tried was grainy and solid that looked like cookie dough paste and certainly not mousse like.

Very good Sunday roast beef. Desserts a little disappointing. Cheese plate could have done with a better selection of accompanying biscuits rather than just plain old Jacobs.

Pumpkin pie was really nice but the veg didn't really compliment the dish. Gravy should come as a natural side. The staff were all lovely. The ambience is really nice.

Went for Sunday lunch as had a BOBfm voucher. Haven’t been here for a long time as not great last time but think new management and we were really impressed. Friendly staff, good service, not rushed and food was excellent. Always worry with Sunday lunch that you’d wish you’d cooked yourself at home but this was a class above pub food. A more gastro two or three course menu but also some of the usual pub favourites as well, which really suited us as a family. We will definitely be back for Sunday lunch but will also try a weekend eve with friends too.
