  • Can’t praise highly enough. From the warm greeting of the manager, to the lovely waitress who got some cushions for my friend’s leg (recently broken) to the fabulous food it was all superb. The Lovell suite is an ideal setting for a summer event as with the French doors open the smell of the lavender meadow wafts in. Thank you all for a brilliant evening!

  • Mothering Sunday lunch. Excellent choices all served by a very pleasant waiting staff of young ladies . We dined in the Lovell Suite , what a super light room. The meal was superb, and the place was busy.

  • “On behalf of the members of the Cloud Group of Women’s Institutes, I wish to thank you and your staff for providing us with a superb day on July 1st, helping us to celebrate 100 years of the WI. The lunch was most enjoyable and the weather was perfect, in fact a little too perfect,- being the hottest day of the year!!  Your staff were wonderful and very attentive and members thank them for the endless jugs of iced water they supplied to them. We all had a great day, and many thanks again to yourself and the team for their total efficiency.  It is wonderful to have a great team who take pride in the work they do.”

I have nothing but praise for Glyn and his team for the seamless management of the wedding breakfast . They helped to make a wonderful day even more special.”

  • Party of 6 celebrating a Birthday on a Saturday lunchtime. Given the excellent tripadvisor reviews, booked a table in advance – we were not disappointed! It was fairly quiet when we arrived but soon became very busy. Service was quick and efficient and they looked after us with regards to a surprise birthday cake which we had taken along. The menu choice is good and the roasts are not limited to Sunday, therefore I opted for roast lamb dinner – gorgeous! It is the best roast dinner I have eaten for a long time in a pub! Other members in the party had chicken, pie, salmon and all enjoyed their meals and very reasonably priced for the quality of food. It is also a lovely drive out and we will definitely be returning again!

  • Lovely place. Food is beautiful and the decor is wonderful. Prices are quite high but the portions and quality make it entirely worth it. Staff are excellent. Lavender worth seeing during summer also – so beautiful!
