Incredible evening! The selection of inventive game dishes was superb and totally delicious. We all enjoyed every mouthful especially the Venison Wellington. Perfectly cooked fresh vegetables. The pub was full with every table taken but the service was impeccable. Congratulations to the whole team!

I dined here at the invitation of a friend in September 2018. The pub and dining room were not too full, the welcome friendly, the service efficient, and the food very agreeable. It was perhaps a little over-priced, but worth a try for somewhere a...More
