Quiet when we visited. Lovely presented food, but thought portions small for price. Excellent service by the staff, pleasant and attentive.

We had not previously realised how fabulous is the “back garden”, which fronts the Ouse. What a perfect setting for pre-dinner drinks, prior to enjoying yet another high-quality and yet unpretentious meal.

Everything was just as we wanted it to be, thank you. I was glad we were sitting in the garden, I found the 'music' in the bar too loud and that is my only criticsm.

I think what struck me most this time was your readiness to accommodate extra guests which was made necessary by our uncertainty about staffing and drivers, with only the proviso of giving the table up to the next booking which we managed easily by my cunning plan of asking for Rid's main course to accompany our starters which, again you accommodated with no query.

My friend and I came for Sunday lunch, we are both vegetarian and asked what the options were to swap in for the meat for the lunch. There were no options and they offered the Yorkshire puddings and veg which we had, we also had a pudding which was good two. We paid the set price for the 2 courses which given the fact we only had the veg I thought was abit steep! Overall good but definitely need a vegetarian option in this day and age!

Food for adults was decent but nothing special. Child's meal was poor quality.

Stunningly delicious food and warm, friendly service. My friends and I meet here a few times a year as a half-way point between where we live and we are never disappointed. We would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

Lovely food. Excellent location and very friendly service (although at times a bit slow but there was a huge party to he fair). Would definitely return. Would be better without music/speakere. Wasn't loud at all but just not necessary either in a quiet country location. Let's hear the birds!! Recommend for a great lunch.
