“Always busy”, “very large” venue (with 23 bedrooms) serving “consistently excellent pub food”. The outside area has gone recently: replaced by a ‘Victorian-inspired’ conservatory.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
