We were booked in at very short notice due to issues with our other booking at the Cock Inn. The staff were really obliging and friendly and having never been to the cow before we all thought the atmosphere was warm and relaxed. Food was great, only criticism was we could have done with more veg to go with our Sunday Roasts (as they were sharing dishes). Would definitely visit again.

The waitress was really nice, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The man behind the bar took the trouble to ask if everything was ok when I went to pay. Impressed..

Had a smelly dog next to us which ruined the ambience a bit. Really damp smell which isn’t great in what is meant to be a really nice restaurant.

The new menu is great and the quality of the food is as superb as ever. Friendly welcoming swift bar service, great wine list with well priced everyday drinkers and top end stuff too. We’ll be back.

We always go out for lunch on Christmas Eve as a family of 3 and usually go to a trusted country pub, that has a chef who is cordon bleu trained in London. However, we fancied a change and I found this restaurant/ country pub by looking at venues near to where we cycle in the summer. Therefore, it was a bit of risk taking. especially as the booking process was quite formal with a time to leave by. However, we were very impressed with the Christmas platter approach. We had things like steak, gnocchi, flatbread, parsnips, wedges. Lovely decor, high quality crystal glasses for a pimms and lemonade and contemporary dinner plates. Followed by unusual desserts like pistachio and olive cake. Although we don't dine out much in the UK, leaving it mainly to our holidays abroad, we definitely would like to return again. Thanks for making our first visit enjoyable by your friendly, inviting approach.

Very noisy due to the spacing of the bar area. Food was good but very small portions for money compared to similar establishments. Can’t fault the quality or the staff just portions are far topcoat small for the money.

I found out about this venue through Mr and Mrs Smith email and as we were in the area we thought we would give it a try. They had just launched the Sunday lunch menu. Place was a upmarket country pub all staff were very welcoming and friendly. The Sunday lunch was good size portions. I had the roast sirloin and it came as a thick slice, the size of a steak. Posh gravy, sprouts,carrots,parsnips, roast potatoes new roast potatoes and a yorkie. It was very flavoursome and great value for money. Rip roaring real fire and spotless toilets very Good

Fabulous food! The staff were amazingly friendly and nothing was too much trouble, my husband has a severe fish allergy and our waitress highly attentive to this and made him feel completely at ease. The food was sensational and the concept of the sharing dishes is a great idea to allow you to try smaller dishes and made for a great conversation too. Our breakfast the following day was so good as well. Would highly recommend the whole experience
