Monday lunch is not the best time for visiting any dining venue, least of all this smart, centrally located country pub. However, pre-Christmas family timetables dictated it must be then, so the 6 of us shared the place with only 4 other diners. What is lost in atmosphere is balanced by enhanced ease of conversation. With 4 different levels of... More

Was here just yesterday enjoying a pre-Christmas family lunch get together. With a choice of several starters and roasts for £19.95 with a pudding coming in at an additional couple of quid (not that we had room for it!) what more can you ask for from this stylish gastro-pub. Chef Hylton certainly knows his stuff and we were not disappointed;... More

Fantastic lunch with friendly efficient service in a nice relaxed atmosphere. The best food we have had for some time. It was our first visit to The Moon & Sixpence but will definitely not be our last.

Absolutely superb food and ambience, the staff bent over backwards to accommodate our party even though I forgot to mention we had a member who was wheel chair bound. Top marks to Hyltons Bradley and his staff. Cannot recommend this eatery enough

Very enjoyable lunch cooked with a chefs touch. My wife and I had fish and chips and the home made burger. Even better with a Gourmet Card.

We were en route to Stratford on Avon from Essex and did not want to stray to far from the M40. My online search spotted this establishment and I have to say - What a great find! It is located in a very pretty village, dotted with Thatched Roof cottages and just a 10 minute or so drive from the... More
