SquareMeal Review of
Away from the tumultuous High Street, The Stonhouse is part of a smart group of hostelries that includes The Abbeville & The Bolingbroke. In its early days, several readers took issue with the
service, but the problem seems to have been rectified, & praise has followed. This was borne out by a recent visit when the staff smiled & the cooking of classic gastropub dishes – salt
& pepper squid, pies, steaks & pork belly – was up to scratch. It’s an ideal place for local yummy-mummies, who turn up for a daytime chat (perhaps seated in the little back terrace) or
with the rest of the family at weekends. Dating couples find the soft lighting a boon in the evening. To drink, there’s Timothy Taylor on tap, plus cocktails & a varied wine list.
