    Best Sunday roast I’ve had in a long time. We shared the wild mushrooms on toast to start which was also amazing.

    Such a cosy atmosphere. The manager was so helpful as our friends brought their dog & no dogs allowed in main restaurant. He managed to sort a dog friendly table in an extremely busy restaurant. Waitress was lovely, great service and delicious food.

    We arrived to a warm welcome of friendly humour. The restaurant was full, but not packed, respectful space left between parties. The atmosphere was happy, led by the staff, who were busy, but smiling. Then our meals arrived; a sensory delight of sight, smell, taste and texture. We can't wait to return

    We've made 30 min car trip to dine specifically at this pub as I'm a great admirer of the N1 Ship Street restaurant in Oxford belonging to the same owners. It was a huge disappointment overall. Food wasn't anywhere near the N1 Ship St standard, although the prices were the same. My daughter's and mine traditional French chicken dish was extremely salty. Sides for each dish had to be ordered additionally - a small bowl of "buttered" new potatoes, which weren't buttered was £6. For the ordered at the beginning bread (£4 pp) and olives (instead of olives we've surprisingly got marinated garlic and a few olives on the top) we had to wait for quite some time. Bread was supposed to be home made but was tasteless. Gluten free bread option for my husband came much later as "it needed to be defrosted". Young waitress was unskilled pouring wine and looking after the guests. Its, unfortunately, very clear that there's a huge gap between the asking price and service and the quality of food and service offered and it needs a major improvement.

    We have been here a few times now after walking the dogs in the countryside. The food is lovely and the staff are very friendly and welcoming to both us and the dogs and also quite forgiving of the mud we brought in with us last weekend.

    Food was pretty good but there was a limited menu choice and it was a bit on the expensive side. Service sometimes spasmodic, perhaps because there was a big party in the restaurant. Lovely place to go though and we'll probably return.
