Opened in 1982, this “lovely”, family-run venture has a quirky location – an old railway station in the countryside. Feedback remains a little mixed however: even those reporting an essentially good experience can find the cooking “unexciting” or “expensive for what it is”.

Very up-and-down feedback on this “quirky restaurant” in an old Victorian train station in the rolling countryside. Even a fan who cited it as a “reliable and pleasant experience” cautioned that the cooking “rarely rises to good and hardly ever to exceptional”, and a couple of former fans related dismal experiences here this year.

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).
