About House of Darwin

We had an idea, sat across the table in our favourite bar, to do something fantastic with a village pub. We wanted somewhere friends could come and get together, enjoying a great variety of drinks and food, inspired by seasonality and individuality. Honest food, friendly service and comfortable unrefined surroundings.

Your home from home and our dream realised. Welcome to door No.221 House of Darwin.

4 adults ordered. Starters were really good, Yorkshire and sticky beef, mushrooms, chicken wings all were really good, mains were extremely dry, all 3 steak and ale pies, 1 burger itself was too well done, not enjoyable. The puddings were average. I’ve had better for a lot less price tag, very disappointing.

We've had food and drinks a few times at the Darwin. This was the first we had the 3 course set menu. 3 courses for £22.95. We both had pie of the day, which was absolutely gorgeous. The starters were excellent too and my wife had the sticky beef and Yorkshire pudding which was a very generous serving. I had mushrooms which were very tasty. Pudding chocolate mousse beautiful and apple crumble was also very good. Great value. The kids meal was very good and she had this along side our starters as she take forever to eat. Our waitress was absolutely brilliant I think she had a bit of a rough day but we really thought she was very caring and attentive.

Amazing food - my steak was simply beautifully prepared. Had to wait a very long time between main and dessert however, so that's the only downside to an otherwise great experience.

I understand the need to keep reminding me to show up - but it got too much. If I have made a reservation and paid a deposit - one check up is enough

Another amazing meal. We had a table for 8 adults on Father's Day, plus our 18 month daughter. Service was great and friendly as always, food was lovely and the whole experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all! Thank you!
