Our friend took us here, otherwise we'd not have known of it. You're struck first by the luminous green of the grounds. Beautiful gardens and lawns, backdropped by paddocks, ponies, and fields of hops vining up. Inside it's the cozy, dark snugness of the sort...More

This pub is very popular on a private estate, very English inside. Food is presented nicely, however I wasn't impressed with the taste. I had chicken pot pie, mostly the filling and a pastry puff on top. It came with potato salad and a green...More

In English pubs you have to go to the bar to get drinks & order food, they are trying to replicate this & are doing a very good job, something a bit different for people that have not visited England. Our pub food has improved over the years & is probably still the most popular as don't pay silly restaurant prices, also pub staff don't expect tips !!

Is your restaurant accessible for someone who uses a walker?

I believe there is a side door with a ramp as I have seen wheelchairs in the restaurant.
