The only problem was the tap water in the bottles they had a strong smell and taste of chlorine. Do not know why this was.
Fabulous food but poor service as there was a function & not enough staff to cope with pub customers. Wouldn't stop me going again tho as it really was superb food.
Service was poor and food mediocre for the price. Offered dessert menu at end to the meal which was accepted but after over 10minutes waiting we got up and paid. Disappointing for a previously good choice for an evening meal.
We arrived at 5pm and was welcomed with the seven before seven menu. Service was a bit rushed, but the food and wine was of course, excellent.
The new restaurant area was loud, clinical and not fitting with a country pub experience. The food was average compared to how amazing it used to be. Quite disappointing in comparison.
Great service and excellent food! This is now our Sunday lunch venue of choice!
Food was fine but service was slow. The pub itself is kept very well and the area around is lovely. It seems to have a steady trade.
We went due to some recommendations but unfortunately we were quite disappointed in the food and felt it was relatively expensive in comparison to other venues. The room was uncomfortably warm and deserts were served cold.
Food and service brilliant as usual. Lovely meal for a birthday
Sunday lunch Was disappointing cold on arrival and meat very fatty .the room was like a cateen ..doors open lots of flies whilst eating ..shame really as it set in beautiful surroundings
