I think yesterday was my 5th or maybe 6th visit. It's a treat for me, somewhere special and it always lives up to my expectations. Fantastic food. Great service. Lovely venue. Well done guys. Keep it up.

We took the family to the Pony and Trap for Sunday lunch to celebrate my husbands 60th Birthday. Fabulous food and service. It’s a traditional country pub serving lovely Michelin starred food. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and will definitely be revisiting.
