We will be back with you on Wednesday 2nd December
Following the Government’s announcement, we find ourselves in Tier 2 which means we can happily open our doors again from next Wednesday 2nd December, albeit with a few restrictions, but thank goodness we’re able to welcome you back to the pub!
The new guidelines mean that we’re only able to accept bookings from single households inside the pub and up to 6 people from mixed households for those brave enough to sit outside. Also, as much as we wish you could just pop in for a pint, for now, we’re only allowed to serve alcohol when you eat with us. Last orders are at 10pm, so we’ll be ringing bell around 9.45pm and we need to ensure you’re fed, watered and heading safely home by 11pm.
Our team will be back together again from the 2nd, so until then please bear with us if you have any questions or booking enquiries.
Thanks as ever for your support, we look forward to seeing you all soon.
If you've not visited the pub before, you'll find the Refectory a fascinating building seemingly built from architectural salvage, a legacy of its time under the ownership of a family of renowned antique dealers. The Refectory was originally a cattle barn belonging to Milford House, which is the enormous house to the right of the building as you look at it.
It is extraordinary what you can make of a cattle barn: open fires and ancient wooden beams create a homely, cosy feel, whilst outside the extensive grounds and terrace garden are great for enjoying those rare days of sun.
As well as freshly prepared, locally sourced food, you are sure to find a buzzy atmosphere, plenty of cask ales, and an enviable collection of whiskies.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
Thanks to our customers recommending us, you'll find us in the:
