A nice pub well maintained, service was a little slow on arrival, had to wait for quite a few minutes in the bar to get served as there wasn't anybody about.. However once staff arrive the service was very good, we ate off the specials menu which is well priced for lunchtime. The main menu is really an evening meal... More

Nice restaurant well outside Bath. Good food, I thought that my liver foie gras was ridiculously small for its price. My wife's slow cooked blade of beef, was amazing. My venison was also perfect. The second time I had been to this restaurant, very good food both times
