Been here 3 times whilst staying at Neem Hall, lovely food and you can bring your well behaved dog into the beer garden whilst having lunch. This is the only reason we went there initially. Friendly staff too👍👍👍

Was here for the restaurant, which ppl recommend for the pies. Tried the pies, chicken asparagus and pork something, loved the pork one. Really nice. We also tried the pizza, pizza was also very good. I would recommend it as well. 🙂
