Came here on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews and the reality was SO much better than I could have hoped for. The food was superb, the ambience relaxed and unpretentious, and the service attentive but discreet. Absolutely perfection. Well done.

Had a lovely lunch at this beautiful family run country house restaurant. A small menu which guarantees fresh ingredients and attention to detail. I had the pork belly with mustard mash. It was suberbly presented with fresh flowers, crispy skin and bacon. It was delicious and I ate every morsel. My husband had the Thai style fish and he said... More

Went here for Granny's 80th birthday celebrations. There were 19 of us in the party and they managed well with all of us including the four children. The service was good though at times slightly patronising...never mind we were a big group and it all ran smoothly. Great country location, lots for the kids to do. Good hearty food. Great... More

We had a fantastic meal. Ordered the beetroot starter and Thai fish cakes. Really tasty and delicious. Service was a bit slow, but friendly. This is a fantastic setting, especially in good weather when you can sit outside.

Hearty country cooking in a fabulous setting. The lamb shank was wonderfully tasty as were the Thai Fish Cakes. The service was efficient yet relaxed. The home baked bread they offer you is amazing but it would have been nice to have a little more. There is place outside for children to play and it is a restaurant which offers... More

Had trouble with hygiene and the service was slow, the lamb, though cooked so as to fall off the bone, had nothing special about it, the garnish used with both the carpaccio and lamb shank was too overwhelming for both dishes.
