    Pleased overall, meals were very good and the draught beer was marvellous, Broadside.
    One of the members of our party was upset to see a cat seeming to have free range in the dining area as she is allergic to cats and perhaps some seat cuchions on the few remaining hard wooden chairs would not go amiss.

    Arrived during the Christmas drizzle to a very pretty country pub, everything looked perfect and that always worries me, a polite notice outside requesting that muddy boots be removed, I was thinking 'oh here we go, one of those pubs, lure you in and then it's all cliquey and pretentious'. How wrong could I be? We were immediately made to feel welcome by a couple of local fellas at the bar, who very happily shared their busy pub with us not so local diners.
    Our hosts were very genial, and made us comfortable straight away, we were provided with complimentary bread and olives with our drinks while we waited for our food, the starters were delicious, soup, baked Camembert, garlic prawns, I can personally recommend the Camembert. The mains of pork, beef and gammon were delicious and despite not having and room for pud we managed to force ourselves. The tea served in a china pot and 'proper' China cups is a wonderful thing.
    It's a long way from home but I think we will definitely find an excuse to be in Kirtling again very soon. Thank you.
