Sat on the main road through Crudwell this English country pub delivers a far higher standard than expected. We three visited on the recommendation of a colleague who said it was good but we were still impressed. We had the belly pork starter, 28 day steak, saddle of lamb & the burger; with the cheese board shared between us. This with 8 pints of Butcombe beer and a coffee, all for £110 which we thought good value. This place gets a rare 4 stars from me-well worth the drive out.

We came here for dinner with friends midweek and it was almost full. The menu is pretty special with game a specialty and some unusual dishes for good measure. Between us we polished off cheese brûlée and game pate and for mains we had the steak, hare & pheasant burger, guinea fowl and polenta mushroom stack. Check out the photo of the menu for details. The food was amazing and the place is really charming and has a vibrant atmosphere. Definitely worth making the trip out to hhis destination eaterie.
Visited here on a recommendation from a work colleague. Arrived with no expectation but left having had one of the best meals I have had recently. Superb food atmosphere and great food / drink. Must visit
