Very busy, pre-lockdown! Food good, waitress friendly. Only issue was that people kept going out of the back door and leaving it open (including staff)! This left us in a draught and it was first cold night.
Want to support them as they were so good during first lockdown - looking after the elderly.

We were sat outside the gents toilet so no chance of the stream of people going to the toilet social distancing. The door to the garden was constantly open so I had to get up to close it during my meal. The food was great and very well cooked.

Lovely food, had the vegetable lasagne which was lovely but the portion size was ridiculous, could easily have been for two if not three people.
Both really enjoyed our meal sat by the fire which was lovely. Friendly staff.

Very nice pub in the village. Friendly staff, great selection of great quality food. I tried one of their pizzas while my other half had a lasagne. Both were great, would recommend both. There was a carvery on as well which looked very nice but didn't take our fancy on this occasion. I would definitely go back to try the carvery another day!

We had a lovely meal in delightful surroundings on Wednesday, 30 September, but although all the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, the meal was a long time coming.

We had a roast 'like Mother used to make''. Crispy roast potatoes, roast parsnips, yorkshire pudding, a great selection of vegetables and a generous helping of meat with the option of gravy. Everything handled strictly by Government guidelines by in a friendly, helpful, manner. Highly recommend the roast but an extensive menu option also available.

Visited during the first day of tighter covid restrictions ( facemasks when leaving the table etc). It was well explained. The weather was bad so everyone was inside but the staff worked well. I would use it again. Good food, old English pub , historic village, free parking. V GOOD.

We arrived at 12:45pm for our booking and was seated inside, after asking to be moved outside we were given a lovely table overlooking the river.
We placed our order for food and drink and drinks were brought out shortly after.
We then waited for 30mins to get our starter but it was a busy day so nothing too major. After we had finished our starter a waiter came over to reconfirm our order (A carvery and a pizza ) this was about 1:30pm and despite numerous reminders and prompts by 3:15pm we decided to leave as it did not seem that we would be getting our food.

The carvery was good but we had to wait over 45 minutes for a simple dessert and even then it didn’t come. We left without dessert and so then had two crying children all the way home.

Most disappointing and I doubt we will go back.

A great shame as their sister restaurant, The Hengist, is one of our favourites.
