Thank you very much, everyone at saye and sele.

Experienced the pie specials, crafted by Danny. This venue is a very classy gastropub with high quality food and desserts. Also an excellent choice of wines.....

My partner and I dined here for lunch after a visit to a local sanctuary and farm. We were greeted by two lovely people who directed us to a spacious table with enough space to put our daughters car seat (she's 5 months) so she wouldn't get in anyone's way. We ordered 2 sandwiches - roast pork and beef. Unfortunately... More

Overall really good experience. Visited lunch time yesterday. Menu has a great balance with what you would expect, plus interesting dishes on the main menu, plus specials. We had Duck and Salmon. Open fire would be good, but one can't have everything!

We stopped in for lunch during a wet Sunday walk. Very friendly and helpful and fitted us in even though we had not booked. Good English food of a traditional kind, cooked well and carefully from fresh ingredients. Not trying to be a place for gastronomes but much, much better than pub grub.

Absolutely amazing night! So very well organised and such an experience trying all the different starters on an Eat as Much as You Can idea!! They were all amazing and so tasty. The Puddings were out of this world... Sat by the cosy fire on a horrible wet, cold and foggy January evening made was just a perfect date night.... More

My husband and I first stumbled across this restaurant by accident while out walking on Boxing Day 2015. It was freezing outside but when we stepped through the door it was warm and cozy with a blazing log fire in the hearth and cheerful decorations hanging everywhere. Inspite of there apparently being not a free seat in the place, they... More

Sadly our Sunday lunch didnt live up to our expectations. Pork was very thinly cut, no crackling, anaemic stuffing ball. Beef and Yorkshire pudding also disappointed, strange flat yorkshire. Service was attentive and friendly but sadly the food was a let down.
