We had a business lunch and despite ordering in advance ended up with two meals we didn't order and I had finished my meal before the final one arrived. Food is ok but not great and some combinations are a little odd. Not sure salad and coleslaw make sense as sides with chilli con carne. Place is nice enough and... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said?? The roast dinners come on three plates they are so big. I had the steak and chips,and couldn't finish it as the portion was huge. I would recommend and it is very good value for money

Stopped overnight here for our anniversary and were not disappointed. Staff were lovely and the food was amazing. It was great to have such a variety on the menu. We both had starters and a main but, sadly, we were too full for pud! Will definately be going again

Went here for Sunday lunch. The place is lovely but badly let down by service and quality of food. We will not be returning any time soon. For those interested in the detail: The bar person who took our order missed off one of the starters. Two of us ordered Prawn Cocktail, very strangely presented (deconstructed?), pile of prawns in...

Visited this quaint little pub at then end of the village of Milton. This is now under new management a couple with good ideas. Stayed for Tea, food was very well presented and absolutely gorgeous. All homemade. Value for money. It has guest ales frequently. Would return without a doubt.

Booked restaurant to celebrate an 80th birthday. The restaurant can accommodate dietary requirements plus you can order small portions. Everyone enjoyed their food. All desserts are home made. The menu suited people with plain tastes and those you who wanted something different. Generous portion sizes. Easy access for wheelchairs. Would recommend this restaurant and would go again. Easy access from... More

Went for a walk to Baites Bite Lock near Milton and on the way back popped into the Jolly Brewers for a snack. Haven't been in Milton for some years and was pleasantly surprised. A lovely meal, spicey chicken burger and big chips!, and a good selection of real ales. A veritable delight and well worth a visit.
