Struggling to get through on the phones?
We are currently closed Monday and Tuesdays to give our kitchen team some much needed rest.
The easiest way to book a table is online via our new booking system which shows our real-time availability.
Our doors are open!
With the easing of restrictions, it's great that you can now head to the pub just like the olden days.
It’s still very important to us that we strike the right balance between loosening up the restrictions, whilst also being mindful of our customers’ and crews’ continued safety and well-being. With that in mind, we wanted to reassure you that we will, of course, continue with our high standards of cleaning in all we do. We will continue to sanitise tables between use and whilst there are no longer any restrictions, we are still mindful of the spacing of our tables, to ensure you feel comfortable. We will continue to make sure the pubs are nicely ventilated and some of our crew and customers alike will choose to carry on wearing a face coverings.
And, just to let you know, we’ll be happily redeeming meal tickets, (collect 6 and receive a main course up to £12). Don’t worry if you have tickets with a November 2020 expiry on, we’ll be glad to extend these until November 2021, just dust them off and bring them along.
We are so looking forward to seeing you soon.
Our wonderful pub is over 480-years-old. In its life it's been a manor house, family home of the Earls of Lucan and a convent.
Now you will find it full of nooks and crannies, with a snug, a library and a warren of seven different dining areas, with plenty of terraces and gardens to enjoy the sun.
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 so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
Thanks to our customers recommending us, you'll find us in the:
