Food & Drink

"We ate as a group and were entranced by the Italian tapas type meal. The wonderfully tasty different course arrived steadily over the meal, providing almost a taster menu without the taster menu price. Staff were lovely and helpful. As well as the wonderful food this is a pub with a good range of beers. Thoroughly recommend."

Parties of 8 or more

Firstly, please do give us a call on 01935 389709 to book your party. We have three different party menus (on the right of this page or below on smartphones). Each menu consists of numerous dishes that give your guests progressively more dishes, more variety & more indulgence - they will receive a selection of all the dishes listed on the menu to share amongst the table. Simply, let us know which of the three party menus you would like, no need to get individual pre-orders from each member of your party. Do let us know if you do have any dietary requirements in your party, whether you have any special requests and whether you would like to pre-order any drinks for the table or on arrival. Ideally, all parties of 8 or more need to sit down by 6.45 or after 8.30pm (by 12.30pm or after 1.30pm at lunchtime).

"Much, much more than a pub with rooms" - Sep 2018


"Love the concept of small sharing plates and every dish delivered. My stand-out was the Dorset lamb with polenta - meltingly flavourful meat with buttery, truffled polenta - a bowl of that on front of the fire would make me very happy. But in fact there was not one dud dish in the ten we ordered. Very impressed and am looking forward to a return visit. Thank you."
