This has to be one of the best places for a cooked meal. It is clean, efficient and the food is excellent. There is a varied menu, including snacks. Highly recommended. I went there four times during my four day visit!

Called in for a light lunch. Jacket potato was very large and beautifully cooked. Steak and onion sandwich was brilliant , too often they are tough and chewy, this wasn't! Everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked good. Would definitely go back.

I have visited many times as I used to live close by. Glad to find it's still a great place; the scenery is always good - but obviously best on clear viewing days - and the food is excellent and reasonably priced. Just one slight negative... Not all of the bar staff are as welcoming as they might be. A... More

Living locally, we use the Inn on a casual basis, and we have found the standard of the food has deteriorated.

This is a great venue in a fabulous location. The one and only negative thing I can sat is my husband and I didn't read the menu properly and the very tasty prawn baguettes came with salad and chips. Very tasty and were enjoyed immensely but as it was my husband's birthday we had planned a celebratory evening dinner which... More
