“Good basic cooking in a lovely dining room” – the reason why this intimate, relaxed and rustic gastroboozer is a “popular” destination amongst locals. Top Tip: “try the steak and kidney pie for a real tasty dish”.

For 31 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).

"A quite exceptional experience! Visited for lunch today, when I phoned to book the lady did we have had a cancellation, thought that was just posturing as it’s a Tuesday lunch, but wow it was busy! I entered at 1200, when it opened, shortly after it was almost full! Large enough menu to cater for most, nice variety. Started with the dusted fish and seafood, only complaint, aioli was too mild. The main was a delicious lamb dish, 98% perfect, personal taste. The dessert produced a challenge as there were two that really piqued my interest. I had brown sugar merrangue with ginger crem and rhubarb. A sensational dessert! Venue has character and is well presented, toilets very clean too. Loved the experience"
