Two of us visited on a Thursday lunchtime having come across this pub purely by chance an hour or so earlier for a drink. At £7.25 for a pint of beer and a tonic water I thought the drinks were expensive but everything else was good so we returned for lunch. This is an old cotswold stone building which is beautifully laid out inside. It was a very hot day so we chose to have lunch in the rear gardens which are partly paved. Wysteria, lavender and other plants make this garden courtyard a beautiful setting.
My friend had fish and chips and I chose the pork loin with creamed potato and we shared a dessert. The food was nicely presented, beautifully cooked and a reasonable priced.

Though the garden was full (and smokers out in force), we managed to get a nice seat inside. Limited menu but loved the bass, samphire, creme fraiche with mussels. Perfectly done.
Lamb loin was cooked just right, though 2 types of potato is overkill. Only a little bothered by flies.

We came here for lunch and had a wonderful meal. The haddock and chips were superb. Great piece of fish, proper chip shop chips and homemade tartar sauce and mushy peas. Great burger too. Desserts were wonderful and cheese board containing all local cheeses was great. Lovely surroundings and great garden at the rear.

The garden is a haven full of roses, honeysuckle and lavenders. Wonderful vegetarian food, lots of flavour, great presentation and excellent service. We will return with our little dog. Thanks for making us so welcome.

Attractive garden, attentive service, exceptional food. We went expecting a nice pub supper, and left having eaten a beautifully prepared dinner, with good wine, and attentive service. A true gastropub, with outstanding chef and very good wine list.
