“Families having lunch overlooking the village green provides a quintessentially English atmosphere” at Dom Chapman’s “very busy” converted pub. One or two reports are so-so this year, but the majority of feedback is outstanding, praising a “thoroughly enjoyable” experience including “very individual” food that’s so good “I’m not sure it qualifies as pub food”“amazing!”

“A lovely location overlooking the village cricket pitch” contributes to the winning recipe for Dom Chapman’s “brilliant” former pub (he was previously a Heston Blumenthal lieutenant at the Fat Duck and Hind’s Head). “Some stunning dishes are delivered very competently” (e.g. “the wild rabbit lasagne was divine, and the sea bream with tarka dhal inspired”). Top Tip: if you’re flying via Heathrow, “a 15-minute detour takes you here”.

Since the arrival of “Michelin-recognised chef” Dom Chapman (ex-of Heston’s Fat Duck, then local haunt The Royal Oak) a few years back, this former pub has had quite the turnaround; while there’s still a bar area for locals, the relaxed seasonal food is now “very good indeed” and “the lunchtime special is a steal”.

Newly taken over by Dominic Chapman, ex-of the acclaimed Royal Oak nearby, and now turning out some “delicious food”, this red-brick venture is “much improved on the old pub” that formerly stood here.

"Warm service and a pleasant atmosphere (well set out [full]dining room), but a disappointing Sunday lunch, with lukewarm beef and undistinguished vegetables (puddings a little better). Sorry to be posting an unfavourable review "
