The objective of the refurbishment appears to be to create a gastro-pub from what was a pub with restaurant, now giving it an " enhanced dining experience". However, we felt this was accompanied with a reduced choice menu and significantly higher prices, compared to what we had experienced before. Our lunchtime visit was busy, this being the first week of... More

Nice job on the refurb and had pulled in quite a crowd. Really hope they maintain it as it's quite lovely. Please please please please please wipe the tables when you're going round collecting glasses. So we don't end up with damp/sticky sleeves :-)

Now Breakspears have done a major rework on the pub and it is superb! Upping the focus on dining they have extended the restaurant area, completely refitted and redecorating all areas creating a comfortable... More

This is the family local, the new surroundings are fantastic and appear to be money well spent. We are very glad that Pierre is still part of the team as this man has been the reason why a lot of the local have kept coming back even when the pub lost its way a little.

Visited The Retreat last night - official opening night. The decor is lovely - a vast improvement on the Anglers Retreat. The bar area was very noisy.The food & service were excellent but very pricy.The steaks were particularly good but from Australia - what's wrong with British beef? The prosecco was £25 a bottle! Most main meals are served without... More

The ' rural retreat ' had held a good reputation in the local but had started to lose it's way and was in need of a fresh coat of paint The improvements externally and internally are welcoming and to high standard Plenty of seating with a full length bar serving a good variety of beers and ales ( along with...
