We came to celebrate my husbands 60th and we cannot find fault with any of the service we received. It was excellent and we will certainly be turning this place back into our regular as we are Whipsnade residents. So glad this pub has changed management as last 2 managers are the reason we stopped using it. Well done keep up the excellent service and we will see you all again very soon.

Perfect venue to enjoy a first meal and drink with Mum after the lifting of the Covid restrictions. Sun shining on a beautifully maintained garden with attentive but not intrusive service. Checked in on Facebook to pass on to friends. Thank you

Disappointed that me actually booking a table means nothing as I was informed when I arrived thankfully a table left within 10 mins of arriving so we grabbed it. And being asked to pay for the food bill whilst only having received the food 3 to 5 mins before was very off putting and disappointing. On a good note food was lovely and the pub looked beautiful but won't be rushing back.

What a wonderful experience. My wife and I had a lovely lunch. Service and food were excellent and friendly. It’s little independent pubs like this that we should be supporting. We will be back very soon. Thank you very much guys. Neil Smith

We had to wait quite a while for our first drink and the tables weren't very festive. Food was good save for the cranberry stuffing and the Christmas pudding wasn't homemade.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was not too busy and all safety measures were taken. The staff was very friendly and polite and the food was very good value for money, as well as tasty. I will definitely be visiting again once the Covid restrictions are lifted.

A variety of portion sizes would be good - generally, the older one gets, the smaller the appetite.

Fabulous evening. Atmosphere lovely but needs a little something. Feels a bit bare at times due to covid I guess. Staff amazing as is good. Always feel welcome. Thank you will be back.
