This is the third and last time we will visit this establishment. Its always been pricey but the food seemed interesting, original well cooked and served with flair. This last visit with friends was a disappointment. In particular steaks cooked and served with a black vegetable dye were slim and tough. One friend managed to chew his way through his... More

My partner and I visited here in September 2016 for our birthdays and opted for the flight choice. It was amazing, the presentation was great too. We would love to visit again as we still talk about how good it was!!

The food is delicately prepared with love and top notch ingredients. A delicious and imaginative menu. Be sure to save room for desert. The ambiance is quintessentially English and the food is by far the best we have ever had in the UK. This was an absolute treat to the end of our holiday.

Can't comment on the food as never eaten there, but stopped in for a quick drink. I ordered a pint of draught cider, a small orange squash ( made with tap water ) and a packet of crisps. For this humble request I was asked to part with close to £8.50. After an aural 'double-take' I realised the bar person... More

Today we visited The Treby and we were both extremely impressed with the level of service and the quality of food. The front of house team were very helpful and consistent throughout the meal. Explaining each dish in detail, showing their wide knowledge on the produce which they are serving. The food itself was a delight to eat and I... More

Food that you don't get at home and bursting with flavour. The steak was fantastic, beautifully cooked so it almost dissolved in your mouth. High praise indeed from an Australian. The range of the menu allowed for a very wide range of tastes and occasions. I had the sweetbreads entre and the vegetarian main as well as sharing some of... More

I do wonder if some are fixated by head chef snobbery? Having eaten tonight I have to say both the food and service were superb. Tasty well presented food which in some respects was better than we had eaten here previously. Good flavours, unpretentious and well presented. The service was excellent and the dopey service charge has been abolished. A... More

First of all, may I say I simply can't understand the Review left by colourfulfoodie! I went there for my 70th birthday celebratory lunch on the 13th April, 2017. All seven of us chose different dishes, and we all said that we thought the food was EVEN BETTER since the previous Head Chef left. I would also say that we... More

Took my mum and dad for a Mother's Day treat. Was slightly worried that the change in chef would make this place less special but it really hasnt. We sat upstairs on a nice table in the middle of the room. We didn't have a starter but just shared some souerdough which was lovely - the marmite and mushroom butter... More

A really great English pub - serving fabulous food but not so fabulous that it achieved the Michelin star level - other than the woodland mushroom dish which was exceptional and did deserve the Michelin star. Yes food was locally sourced but when I was excited about being served lichen - I expected at least a tablespoon worth - but... More
