I had fairly high expectations of the food after visiting their website and reading a couple of reviews and these expectations were exceeded.
The atmosphere is calm, intimate and welcoming as you arrive. The interior is low ceilings, dark beams and a roaring fireplace. The staff are pleasant, polite and attentive when you need them to be and thankfully not obsequies or fawning.
The quality of the photography of the food on the website is awful and I am happy to say it is lot better in real life. If you like country fare creatively and innovatively prepared and very well presented, then you will not be disappointed. I truly relished and enjoyed the chef's combinations and delicate treatment of traditional ‘heavies’ such as black pudding and haggis. He or she is a very welcome surprise tucked away in a small Surrey village.
On the wine… rightly or wrongly, I like to judge restaurants by their choice and price of house wines. Our house choice proved to be an ideal full bodied accompaniment to our choices and the price was reasonable.
Whilst the portions where not huge I was fully sated and unable to manage pudding – another day!
What's not to like? I'm struggling a little here… but I found the chairs uncomfortable, but only later on. All in all, this is my sort of place so I shall certainly be going back.
