My wife's birthday so my daughter and I asked her where she would like to go for lunch and she chose this pub in a nearby village. We had heard good reports about it and were not disappointed. An excellent lunch menu at a very reasonable price. The service was very attentive and the portion sizes were extremely generous. All in all a very good choice and I would recommend it to anyone.

Booked in for 2 nights last weekend. Lovely room, clean, modern and staff very accommodating making sure we had skimmed milk in room and for breakfast which by the way was hot, great choice, eggs cooked to order and very pleasant staff overseeing the service. However, emergency light over door in room emits a green light which is constant and this really affected my sleep as it lightened up the room, we also appeared to have a boiler pump somewhere going through its cycle all night every 30 seconds. Overall did not get much sleep despite a very comfy bed. This was pointed out to staff and we were told that these are issues currently being addressed. That aside I would definitely recommend this place.

We stayed and ate here for our 22nd anniversary; having celebrated having a 7 course meal on a river cruise in Bangkok, in the USA and other locations like that, we both agree this is in the top 5 wedding anniversaries.

We stayed in room 8 which has recently been renovated and we were very impressed by how warm and comfortable it was.

However the real treat was the food from the Autumn menu, it could not have been nicer, each bite being savored for all it was worth. Carol splashed out on the started and had the scallops which were cooked to perfection while I splashed out on dessert, but we'll get to that.

Our main courses were venison for Carol and breast of pheasant and game pie for me. They were beyond words, an absolute treat; we felt like we were judging an episode of Master Chief.

My dessert was croissant and danish pastry bread and butter pudding which was delicious, but the home made vanilla custard was the highlight.

It was a bit pricey with drinks, but it was worth every penny.

We would like to commend Laura who checked us in and served us at the bar; her manner, humour and professionalism was faultless, thank you

Picked this pub based on great reviews and were not disappointed. Amazing food and quick and efficient service . Cosy atmosphere with low lighting. We had delicious roast chicken with the best veg selection ever. Loved the red wine gravy too. Desserts were just as good especially the Eton mess. Looking forward to returning soon. Never written a review after a pub lunch but this deserved it. Highly recommend.
