Full marks for atmosphere - lovely. Food was very good, although my main course was tepid, and the red cabbage with my pheasant arrived as kale. Service let you down: pleasant, but very slow - just one waitress for the tables and the bar. Pricing is wrong too for a country pub: £40/head for a lunch main and pudding, with a pint of sparkling water; no starter; no wine; no coffee. This is London pricing without the service level to match.

Our starters were amazing, the main courses almost as good, and it’s pretty good value in what is a very pricey area. Staff all very friendly and helpful, and we’ll look forward to visiting again.

Starters - esp Ox Cheek, Main - I had Cod were super . Only slight disappointment really was choice of Desert - basically all were variations on Ice Cream / Sorbet. On a cold wet Winters day where were the yummy hot deserts and custard?! Still a wonderful meal which 3 generations thoroughly enjoyed - and a great Wine selection. Thanks every.

Great Christmasy atmosphere and lovely well priced food only let down by a slightly ‘basic’ parsnip veggie option. Will definitely come again.

We enjoyed a fantastic Sunday lunch, meeting family we have not seen for a while. From the very start we were warmly welcomed and made to feel special. The food was excellent and service could not have been better. Thank you. We shall return!

booked the vegetarian tasting menu for a special occasion but was told on arrival it was not available. 2 vegetarians in the party of 4 & very limited veggie options. Asked to speak to the manager who was very rude. Eventually chose mushrooms on sourdough which was tasteless & was more like mushrooms on toast for £15!! Asked for a cheese board for dessert & was told that there was no cheese!!....ABSOLUTE DISASTER!!
