“The epitome of the dining pub” – broadcaster Michael and his son Nick Parkinson’s gastroboozer “combines the informality of a genuine working pub with the elegance and comfort of a high-class restaurant”. The “delicious, unpretentious food is meticulously prepared and presented”, and there’s a “fantastic list of interesting wines from around the world”.

Parkie – and son Nick’s – country inn is an “excellent gastropub” strong on convivial atmosphere and with consistently highly-rated cooking. It does attract the odd poor review however: does that Michelin star unnecessarily raise expectations?

Parkie’s country gastropub is “the kind of pub you could imagine having a beer in”. We – like one or two reporters – are “not sure about the Michelin star”: at the price, the food is “perfectly competent”.
