We ate here yesterday lunchtime as a party of 7 having booked at short notice (<30mins). The food was outstanding, the service attentive even given the pub was extremely busy and the cost value for money.

I would say the food quality, variety and combinations are more akin to a restaurant than a pub and a very good restaurant too.

My wife loved the beetroot, stilton salad starter and the children really enjoyed the whitebait. My father-in-law was immensely jealous of the steak and kidney pie, which was large and very very tasty. The winelist was varied and good value and the Timothy Taylor pint was really good.

All in all a really enjoyable experience and I will definitely go again and would recommend it to anyone. BTW the walls are full of Rugby memorabilia which pleases my rugby mad son!

We had dinner here last night. There was an excellent barmaid who we thought was spanish but was Slovack! She really put her two English barmen to shame - they were ok but not as good as her!

Anyway started with an excellent pint of Timothy Taylor beer and my wife had a glass of house white. We had a very nice bottle of Rioja with the meal.

I had a starter of Cherry Wood smoked chicken breast with pickled beetroot honey and mustard vinaigrette dressed salad and pine nut and artichoke puree. This was very nice presentation superb. 7.45

I then had the Baskerville smoked ham with marmalade and rosemary glaze, handcut chips, two fried local free range eggs and buttered peas. This was fantastic. The ham was delicious and the eggs so good. 12.95

My wife had the special of Natural smoked cornish haddock on creamy mashed potatoes with leek, pea and wholegrain mustard sauce topped with a free range poached egg. 15.95. The fish was a bit small but was very tasty. We then had the 'share' dessert with a mixture of their desserts which was very good and we enjoyed them all.

This place has always been a bit special and continues to be so. Well done!
Visited for Saturday lunch - delicious food, far better than pub food! Excellent service, looked after us, including our young children really well. Would go again without hesitation.
Sunday lunch at The Baskerville on a windy, rainy, miserable June day!
No booking and the pub was obviously pretty busy but the staff went out of their way to fit us in.
Good job for us that they did - imaginative starters and a genuinely memorable Sunday roast (beef in my case, pork for my wife) with high class wines cheered the day up for us both.
The Baskerville lives up to it's high standard and reputation again.

Had dinner there last night. There are three menus a specials, Village dining night ( on selected nights - two courses for 13.50 ) and the ala carte.

I started with a nice pint of well kept Timothy Taylor Landlord and my wife had a pleasant glass of Chilean dry white. With the meal we had a well priced French Merlot.

I started with the Steamed Shetland Mussels with wine, garlic shallots, parsley and cream. This came with bread starter price 6.50. As a main it was 12.95 including chips. The sauce was perfect and the mussels plump, clearly fresh and tasty.

My wife had the Smoked bacon and lentil soup with leeks and carrots with bread. This was off the village dining menu. Very nice.

For mains I had the smoked Cornish Mackerel on horseradish mash with creamed leeks, green beans and a free range poached egg. I had forgotten how nice this fish is and it was well cooked, nice mash and vegetables.

My wife had the Natural smoked Cornish Haddock with mashed potato , spinach, pea and wholegrain mustard sauce and another poached egg @ 13.50. also very good. We also ordered a side dish of extra vegetables.

We then finished with the cheese served on a slate with nuts , grapes and celery and biscuits. This was also very good.

all in all an excellent meal the service was as good as ever.
