Food was amazing. I had pork belly and scallops and my partner had sea bass, both delicious. Lovely atmosphere with open fire. Very friendly staff. Look forward to returning.

Family celebration The food was very good. I can appreciate it was a busy evening but the service was not as good as expected. Two drinks that were ordered did not arrive. Gentle reminder given to the waitress. Ketchup, mayonnaise and vinegar also did not arrive after the original request. Another reminder was necessary. Three different desserts were not available , which was disappointing.

Truly one on the best meals I've had for a long time. Absolutely spot on in everyway. Service, presentation, and most importantly tasted amazing. What a gorgeous building, it's just so warm & welcoming. Stuart out waiter was so nice and helpful , and asked questions about our day , as we said our daughter had just graduated in Winchester Cathedral that afternoon. He is a special member of staff , and should be proud to have him as part of the team. I could not of picked a better or more perfect place to celebrate. Thank you so much to all the staff for making it all so special.

Lovely country pub, with relaxed dining - amazing quality food. Wide selection of starters that all looked good, and shared a superb chateaubriand... sadly leaving no room for dessert! Service from Lauren was spot on - friendly and efficient. We will definitely be back!

Stuart our server was excellent. Give him a raise! Coming from the midlands who do excellent pies. The steak and ale pie here was to die for! My partner had the burger who rated this 5*, the dripping was a great touch! And for the desserts…the chocolate bomb was to die for and was well worth the calories. Atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. Great place instead of a busy city centre. Highly recommend
