One of the best locations we have found for traditional, good value, pub food in a nice setting. In a very nice setting this pub is Incredibly welcoming and professional. I would not say this is by any means a gastro pub, rather it does good pub food very well. The quality of service from staff does however put it... More

Our Tuesday walking group clustered eagerly into the Chaser's tranquil garden four miles in to an eight mile walk. We just stopped for a coffee (well a mint tea, the odd pint and a latte). WSE were served wonderfully well by welcoming, good humoured staff who were helpful and supportive. The Chaser is usually busy and alive with energy. A... More

It was incredibly busy but managed to find a table and as we sat down a very nice young lady came over and asked if we would like a drink and gave us the menus. Cannot fault the service or food both... More

Really enjoyed going here. The pub is in a lovely location, you could go for a walk in the surrounding area. Decorated nicely and has real fires. Courtyard is lovely to dine in, lots of space and not cramped up against other tables. Food was really good, no complaints at all. The Eton mess is particularly good! The staff are... More

Lovely location, excellent waiting staff but food average. Expensive & small portions. Very disappointed, as it had been highly recommended.

We have been here once before for lunch also. We were seated away from the families, so we were glad to not have screaming children near us. The service was great, food lovely and I tried the new Vegetarian jack fruit plate, which was scrummy. Would definitely eat here again

We have been visiting the Chaser for years, but after our recent visit it won't be on our list for meals again. The roasts were enormous, piles of food, not well presented and very ordinary. The other mains were generally disappointing. Desserts and starter sharing platter also nothing to write home about. We decided there must be a new chef... More
