Nick Davies left this review about The Punchbowl

Essentially a fancy (well it thinks it's fancy, menus without pound sign, you get to know the symptoms) restaurant/hotel in a modern looking building on a semi-rural crossroads. There is a somewhat sterile bar area, comfortable enough but meant more, I suspect, as a waiting area for those 'dining with them'. Shoved up a corner as an afterthought are a couple of handpumps clipped for Doombar and Atlantic. Oh my what a surprise. I stuck to what their website calls "larger", which was, of course, ambitiously priced and, I'm afraid, gruffly served. The huge car park suggests it's popular with the 4x4 owning classes come the weekend.

Walk on by.
