This was a quality and lovely Sunday lunch and at 1 Michelin starred level, the £42 pp is, in my view, very good value for money.  Sceptics need only look at the photos below to see why I say this.  Having actually tasted and experienced it, I found the menu simple and homely yet clever and with some really good moments combined.  Definite return for the diner here.

– the slices of sausage roll and onion mousse with cheese crackers as snacks in the bar were some of the nicest pre-lunch nibbles I have had in a long time.  Although quite rich, the chicken liver parfait with mushroom toast starter was utterly divine in its decadence and other stand out moments were the pork main, beef main with wonderful horseraddish and yorkshire pudding with trimmings done very well (difficult to see how this could be bettered as a Sunday roast beef dish) and the apple fool dessert.  The remaining dishes simmered at pleasant on the pleasure meter.  However, all in all, this was a superb Sunday roast meal which I thought was very reasonable for the return, all served with gracious and warm courtesy and a very well selected wine list – wine lovers will be in good hands with the sommelier here.

Thanks to Lisa for a super lunch and for the hospitality from the team on the special occasion that it was – well executed on all counts and a repeat visit for a different menu at some point in the future is frankly a given.
