Good food. Great, informal service. Slightly pricey for pub grub. £18.50 for sea bass fillets? But pretty good overall.

We went for our anniversary, first time here. Staff were great . Pub clean but not decorated fancy . Service very quick. Food very very pricey. £26 for a steak with frozen chips. Nearly £9 for a large house wine. Definitely not worth the money

Went for a Sunday roast and chose this place hoping they’d have a good veggie option as it changes and is on the specials board. Got lucky with a delicious mushroom and spinach Wellington. Service was excellent. Very friendly,attentive and no bother to bring us anything extra we needed.

Thanks for getting in touch and your comments, we value all feedback. Unfortunately some of our prices may need to be a little higher to help us and our quality food producers rebuild after a difficult few months and we hope you can understand the need for this right now. We only use the good stuff, so our cheeses are all artisan and our meat free range. We do look at our competition and feel we are well priced for the quality. We are glad you enjoy our pub and appreciate your support.

Overall, a very pleasant experience, with good food and service in a comfortable and well ventilated dining area. Meeting up with an old friend for lunch - Woburn was half-way between where we each now live - it turned out we were both on post-lockdown diets! To be honest, the menu didn't really have much to offer in the way of light, low-carb options such as salads etc. The chicken portion was very generous, if not challenging. I guess there's just the one menu for evening and lunch - perhaps a smaller, lighter (on the pocket as well as on the stomach) lunch menu could be worth considering.

Responded on September 7, 2020

Thanks for your feedback Nigel, hope you enjoyed your catch up with friends. We do have a smaller menu right now, however we are constantly reviewing our offerings and will take your comments on board - just so you know we have a new menu available at the end of the month. Do hope we can welcome you back again
