The service was brilliant - the young waiter ( 27 is soooo young) was knowledgeable and a real asset to the pub. The food was hot and... More

The homemade soup was delicious, game terrine first class. we had a chicken dish for main course, and it too was faultless & such value for money. Good beer & wine. Lovely friendly staff. Thoroughly... More

Called for drinks on our way home from Woodhall Spa as there was an event on in this lovely little village. Service was great and we enjoyed our drinks in the outside area. Everywhere was clean and tidy. We will definitely be stopping to try the food next time we are driving through.

First class food and service at sensible prices. Very pleased that we had booked a table as the restaurant was very busy. We will certainly visit again.
