Reviewed 2 months, 4 days ago

"Once the season opens, this is the place to go. It's more than a gastropub but with its unpretentious atmosphere and friendly service it's less than fine dining: the perfect place to chew at the legs of a grouse. Its popularity should stress the staff yet they seem to manage us all brilliantly. The wines tend to the expensive so that you have to settle for less than the perfect match for the bird."

"Very good pub food - the Wagyu burger was great - but do the portions really have to be so big? And prices are a bit steep for the type of food offered."

Reviewed 10 months,

"By no stretch of the imagination is it a pub and we have seen people being discouraged from just having a drink. You’d never pop in for a pint and those pub of the year awards feel rather bogus. It’s a restaurant in a pub style atmosphere, and it’s a very good restaurant indeed. Food respects the locale and the seasons - a big bone filled with tongue and marrow; a tian of crab, fresh and textured with apple; a light goats cheese tart with walnuts; a beautiful golden steak pie with a bone marrow cork, which you pull out to allow the marrow to settle into the heart of it. Robust, forthright, great quality. Excellent wine list - really well thought through and some treats available too. It is, as you’d expect, not cheap - lunch is around double the cost of anything else in the neighbourhood. It doesn’t seem to put anyone off. Downside is appallingly twee language everywhere and slightly underwhelming bread these days - but I’ll forgive that if the food continues to excel. "
