Bookings for up to 6 people and 'the bell' ringing an hour earlier
We are currently only able to accept bookings for up to 6 people both inside and outside the pub. These 6 people, including adults and children, can be from multiple households. We also need to ensure you’re fed and watered by 10pm. Customers are also required to wear masks, when not seated at their tables.
With ‘the bell’ being rung an hour earlier, if you fancy a tipple to take home, we have some ‘last order’ drinks for you to enjoy at home. We also have our ‘Click and Collect’ menu up and running, so you can enjoy some of your favourites from the comfort of your home – head to our Click and Collect page to whet your appetite and place your order.
Please note, the above changes apply here as we are in a tier 1 area. However, if you live in a tier 2 or 3 area, please follow the rules for your tier.
Thank you for your support and for helping us all play our part in keeping everyone safe.
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.
