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.
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.
A good start to the day is a very important, but let's face it, from a culinary perspective we don't always give this time of day the attention it deserves..
So with your well-being and happiness in mind we are now serving Brunch from 9am to 11am everyday, with our Daily Menu being served from Midday.
and use our online booking calendar to reserve your table.
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)
