As always the food and service were excellent. I know they can’t control the weather, but because we had work papers to discuss I had booked one of the wooden gazebo tables. Unfortunately when we got there (on time) they were all occupied. When it started to rain our papers got wet and we had to leave to continue our discussions in an office. Lovely lunch though! Les.

A lovely setting for lunch overlooking the countryside. The recently refurbished terrace is an improvement. The service was efficient and helpful and the food was tasty and good value. My partner had a salad and I had the special, a mushroom stroganoff both of which were nice. The unpredicatable UK weather though means you need to wrap up warm and have a raincoat! Lovely when the sun shone but not so pleasant when it started to snow in May!!

We visited on the 3rd May 21. The weather was so bad, windy and lashing it down with rain. The service we received was second to none, despite the weather. Staff were welcoming, polite and helpful.
We will definitely return.

Booked using this site but when I arrived I was given a table in the rain rather the covered table I’d booked with a high chair. I could see my empty table but was told it wasn’t mine. It should be explained on the booking site that most of the tables are exposed to the rain.

Slow service

Rowdy customers not abiding by covid guidelines creating an unenjoyable atmosphere for an anniversary evening.

We ordered a Pork Sunday dinner. The dinner came with no crackling or stuffing despite it being on the menu. Our food was also cold when it arrived.

Quickly seated by staff, waited a while for order to be taken but drinks arrived swiftly followed by the food. Needs a bit music just playing on low.

Food great as always.

The meals were lovely...big portions on the bbq meals. The 1st drinks order and meal order were quick to be taken and to be served. Staff were lovely. Unfortunately no one came back to take the 2nd drinks order and we couldn't catch anyones eye so we left but would have stayed for another drink. We were disappointed that we couldn't have a starter because we were outside???

Would definitely go back and look forward to being inside again!

I booked a table for my partner's 40th birthday. It took 30 minutes to have our drinks order taken. People were being served before us who arrived later. We sent the food back to be cooked properly. We felt ignored throughout the whole experience and others received preferential treatment. We won't be going back.

Sons 21st birthday. Mentioned this when booking and asked for a nice table. There has been little thought or expense or provision made for outdoor dining. No umbrellas, no patio heaters we were freezing and it rained! Staff were unhelpful and frankly rude. Will not be returning.

It was good to be back, as always the food and service was amazing. However, our booth we were in didn’t have a working heat lamp which for the time of day we went it got very chilly.

Can’t wait to go back again!

Lovey day to sit out ( had it been raining it would have been awful )
We were right next to the play area which was fine as we had a toddler but I would have hated to sit there otherwise
Food as usual good
James was fab but we waited 40 mins for our order to be taken
Totally understand it’s all new and they coped with the amount of people well

It was a long wait between starters and mains.
When ordered, they didn't have the burgers in the kids menu, and after ordering they came back saying there were not beef left on the menu.
Cutlery came in 3-4 different times
