Excellent meal as usual - we would expect no less from this wonderful place. There were 7 adults and 2 children at our meal, however,mother staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Highly recommended.

Nice dining room. Slightly limited lunch menu. Didn’t feel like the food was worthy of good food guide status but dinner menu looked better.

We had our wedding reception here on 10th March and it was amazing from beginning to end. The food was superb and the staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Can't recommend enough and we will be back in the very near future. A massive thank you to Kerry and all the staff for making our day perfect. Andy and Helen Pilgrim

Friday night, just wanted a relaxed bite to eat, chose from the Pre fixe menu, food excellent and even surpassed our expectations, which we quite high being very familiar with the Dawnay, which is always excellent. Great service, even down to ensuring we got our favourite table. Thank you !

An absolutely excellent Sunday lunch with tender, tasteful beef, vegetables (particularly cabbage) that were fresh, lightly cooked and full of flavour. Will most certainly return! Thank you.

After being snowed in we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary in our local village pub. We sat by a roaring log fire . The pub had a great atmosphere as there were quite a few couples dining in the warmth.We both had the French onion soup to start which warmed us up- My husband chose the rib eye steak and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the chicken ,ham and leek pie which was very tasty.. We finished with the Lemon creme brûlée which was delicious. I love the fact that Kerry has my favourite double Dutch mixer in stock which goes well with a Hendricks gin. Another great meal in our fabulous village pub-open in all weathers.

This is a quality, village real ale pub experience. Complete with fire and Black Sheep on draft. 'Landlady' runs a tight ship, can look a little stern, friendly young hands on deck. One thought would be to enclose more the eating area immediately to right when coming through front door. Smaller door into this room would create more intimate space. Trust helpful Phil and Carla
