Excellent meal very covid secure with screens between tables. We had to change our booking due to friends not being able to join us and they were more than helpful and flexible. I would highly recommend both now and when things return to 'normal'

COVID RISK! We are in a COVID crisis with Very Clear guidelines on social distancing, yet the owner thought it was fitting to seat a couple within 3 foot of us, WE had to ask them to be moved. When speaking with the owner about it HE was extremely curt and disinterested and merely kept repeating that they will put a screen up, not even an genuine apology was offered. Staff are very young and extremely unobservant. Overpriced. Customer service skills could do with being mastered by the owner as well as an overhaul of his attitude.

Was disappointed about the delay for the missing gravy and relish as the chap said he was getting it and never came back to us. Not even to apologise that he had forgotten! The food was delicious, but its things like that you remember unfortunately so its a shame they weren't on our plate as they should have been when we were served. Likewise a steak knife which we had to ask for after we had been given our food. Your prices are high and in my opinion worth it, but the customer service isn't a there sadly

Everything is great quality and always receive a warm welcome! The staff are highly attentive and polite and the food is absolutely delicious. The effort they have put into the marquees and outdoor heating so that friends can meet following gov guidelines is brilliant. On top of all this, they provide huge support for their community! Only went last night and am due to go back again on Sunday! Can’t wait 😊

I came with a friend and sat in the marquee. Blankets were provided and there were some heaters so it wasn’t too cold. Food was excellent and ditto service. Will definitely be returning
