No petit fours with coffee and no explanation or apology when asked why not.

We loved our meal yesterday. The food was delicious, its appearance was both artistic and very tempting. I especially loved the rabbit. It can be rather a temperamental dish but mine was succulent and delicious. Its accompaniments were varied flavours that enhanced the flavour of the rabbit. My peach melba was such a treat - a lovely blend of flavours. The waitresses were attentive and friendly: perfect hosts. The decor in the dining room is a rather spartan and that does affect the atmosphere but I really liked the rosehips with rosemary on the tables.

We booked for Sunday lunch as your web site menus said you had vegetable wellington on the menu on line but that wasn’t the case. My roast pork didn’t have any crackling and the cauliflower cheese had a very strong flavour as if made with goats cheese. Saying that, the rest of the vegetables were very nice although could have been served hotter.

This is one of my favourite pubs in the area. It’s beautiful, the food is beautiful and the staff warm and welcoming. The roast beef is some of the best i’ve ever had. Really worth a visit. We have visited twice with our young baby and they have never made us feel awkward, just relaxed and at ease and couldn’t do enough for us.

Enjoyed a really nice Sunday lunch here this weekend. Granted the prices are a little on the high side but the food was very nice. I had the beef which was cooked to perfection. A very friendly atmosphere from both staff and other customers. If I had to provide some constructive criticisms it would be a larger selection of food on the Sunday lunchtime menu.

I felt that the quality of this lovely Pub,/Restaurant was somewhat spoiled by the unnecessary background music. Otherwise we found the visit extremely pleasant

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious and tasted every bit as good as it looked. The staff were warm, welcoming, charming and attentive. We enjoyed the sunshine in the gorgeous garden but the restaurant inside was buzzing with atmosphere on the Friday lunch time that we visited so we will definitely be back.

We had a 12.30 reservation and ordered at 12.50. We then did not get our food for nearly an hour. Too slow, particularly for my 86 year old mother......
