Excellent venue for a family Sunday lunch as people had travelled up to 60 miles. Good service and high standard of food. Well presented and a very comfortable restaurant.

I largely endorse the entry 3/4 below this one - 'overpriced and not a great meal'. I have probably only given a rating of '3', rather than a '2', because I have always had a soft spot for the pub although my visits - to eat and drink - are infrequent. It is probably fair to say we haven't had... More

Had such a lovely evening at our local pub tonight. Food was really amazing, service friendly and quick. Very, very lucky to have such a brilliant pub in our village.

Wow, the best Sunday lunch (aside from home cooked) that we have ever had in a pub or anywhere. Massive portions, very well cooked meats, we had all three selections (Pork, beef and chicken) in our group and they were all excellent. Special mention to the rolled belly of pork - delicious, and beautifully rare lean beef. In addition the... More

Having been to this pub many times in the past I was really disappointed with our experience. Previously this was a fabulous country pub with really good food and a lovely atmosphere. I visited Friday night and was treating my partner. We can talk fault the politeness of the staff as they were very efficient, but the food was pretty... More

I have used the Thomas Lord on previous occasions for lunch and have never been disappointed. It is a lovely village pub/restaurant that serves great lunchtime fair. It has a small car park (that seems to be permanently full whatever the number of customers). The customer area is split into two; the bar area and the restaurant. On this day... More

It looks from the outside like a standard country pub but the offerings are on a par with a top restaurant. The service is superb and the staff have clearly been well trained in customer service. The wine list is remarkable for a country pub but I suspect that they do not sell many bottles of their most expensive offerings.... More

Tucked just off the main A32 is this fine example of how a pub should be run, full of locals after a days shooting and their dogs. Well kept beer, great food, amazing for an afternoon relaxing over lunch. Well done and thanks.

Wonderful pub food, good beer, helpful and friendly staff, really enjoyed it. The menu was great and really nice to see some original dishes and not the same old choices. The food was delicious and well presented, as far as pub food goes, I think this is as good as anywhere you find.

Thank Paul O
