We are now open!
We are really excited to have opened our doors again and to be able to welcome you all back.
We've had to make a few changes and we would welcome your help with a some of them: Whilst we find our feet we are encouraging bookings only inside the pub. Outside tables are not available to book, however a queuing system will be in place at busy times. We have now gone cashless and would ask for contactless payments wherever possible.
For a full list of our changes, please see our 'Keeping everyone safe' page to find out more.
We hope to see you soon.
Welcome to the website for the Roe Deer
The Roe Deer was a family home called Lawnswood House, built for the Foley family between 1813 and 1816 during the reign of King George III, in the Regency style. This means that it has wonderful high ceilings and huge casement windows that flood the rooms with natural light from the ancient gardens that surround it.
The building lends itself beautifully as a pub and now has a large bar at the heart of the building. Outside there is a stone terrace to the front, which enjoys sunsets framed by the grand old trees, and views out across the lawn and the fields beyond. Upstairs, enjoying the same views you will find a private dining room which will comfortably seat 14.
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.
AllTrails have kindly created a circular walk from the pub to help you work up that thirst/appetite. You can view the walk details via any of the routes below. (varying levels of tech savyness required -Ed)
