the Snooty TavernA quality family owned restaurant.
Thank you to all our fantastic customers who have continued to eat with us by supporting our takeaway evenings, and our Outside Dining. Your support and love has helped us through these hard times, and we are forever grateful!
The Snooty Team's aim is to provide a comfortable local country pub with excellent freshly prepared food, made with care, accompanied by fine wines and ales. We will try our best to give you a great experience, which, hopefully, you will feel you can recommend to your friends and colleagues. We offer full menus for Vegetarian and Vegan and Gluten Free diners (not just a token option). We have designed all areas to be safe, both for our clients and our staff.
We are very excited to have opened our Garden Restaurant, incorporating our very popular self-contained bandstand, as well as our Covid safe internal restaurant, and our three sundowner tables at the front of our pub. Our new and exciting menu is now up and running for hopefully the last of our lockdowns. Please book online for tables of up to 6. For 2 households of more than 6, please call to arrange a larger space. We have a private room for gatherings of 12 which accomodates two tables of 6 for those special family occasions, business lunches or dinners. This must be booked in advance.
Why not try a stunning Tomahawk Steak (Cote de Boeuf) cooked over Charcoal on our Yakatori Grill (to share with 2/3 friends) and featured on our Specials Board? (See image top left). Now available as a takeaway, ready carved, as an alternative to the traditional Sunday lunch - complete with a selection of vegetables and gravy. A truly special meal to share with family or friends at home.
Takeaways are available during both lunch and evening services of our complete menu ~ please book on 01480 860860 or 07597 981112. Please select from the menu page - image on left shows our Madagascan King Prawn Takeaway - boxed and ready to go!
As we are now open, with strong demand, there is an opportunity for a new chef to join our happy kitchen team and assist us in creating exciting food. Please get in touch if you would like to be considered.
If you are planing a Private Dinner, Wedding Celebration, Birthday, or Meeting we can offer privacy, discretion and attentive service. We have a separate private function room that can accommodate diners in comfort for those special occasions, or for business meetings - equipped with a large TV screen for presentations. Numbers and room design will be subject to Covid restrictions at the time - please call to discuss.
Gift vouchers are available to give as birthday/anniversary presents, or as a "thank you" to someone special.

Recently moved from The Mermaid at Ellington, the chef is still creating the most loveliest plates of food although not quite as creative . I am sure he is frustrated in not doing his stunningly, creative and delicious plates . However, he is still serving absolutely delicious, creative food . The service is spot on, as you would expect from Ann and her servers . They are knowledgeable, polite, well informed about the menu, without being too formal . October 2020.
Fantastic! Thank you Snooty Tavern for the tastiest vegetarian meal I’ve ever had. Celebrated my Anniversary with you, and you made our evening a wonderful experience. Staff professional and friendly. Food exceptional. Atmosphere welcoming. We will be back!
The welcome we received was so warming. We absolutely loved our evening. We love this gorgeous venue. It has character but is also light, cheerful and airy 🙏🏻. They allayed all our concerns re Covid, and have established gold standard levels of hygiene without being “clinical”. They are just interested in you having a good time. The food was really good 🙏🏻 and has restored my faith in the post-Covid world’s ability to combine delicious food with joyous “hosts”. We will certainly be back 🙏🏻
We have just moved to the village and heard some excellent things about The Snooty Tavern, all of which turned out to be true. The food is exceptional, and the service and atmosphere is relaxed, yet so professional, that you felt spoilt and cosy at the same time. We have already booked for some follow up visits, and would have no problem in recommending The Snooty to anyone.
A fantastic evening! Nick, Ann and the team gave us a great welcome and we felt very safe and looked after. It’s our first meal out since lockdown, but we would have no hesitation to return very soon. Great to experience the amazing food we came to love at The Mermaid. I have dreamed of Nicks Soft Shell Crab and it didn’t disappoint 👍. The garden is lovely, and the bar and restaurant are very open and well distanced. It’s great to have them back, I would highly recommend a visit!!
