“Top-quality food from chef/owner James Rix” has earned a stellar reputation for this village gastropub. The “daily changing menus of mainly English dishes, influenced by rural Italian and French cooking, always have a few delightful surprises” and “although it’s a long way from the sea, the freshness of the grilled seafood is a special feature”, as is “excellent” steak prepared on the Josper grill.

This village gastroboozer has become a foodie destination over the past 15 years, and it’s easy to see why: chef/owner James Rix brings his Michelin restaurant background to bear on the menu, offering whole Dover sole or turbot alongside “cuts from rare-breed cattle including English Longhorn and Galloway – all grilled on a charcoal oven”.

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).
