The food was wholesome and homemade. The portions were big and very tasty. Enloyable on a colder day.

Stopped here after a busy day out exploring. Don't let the unobtrusive exterior put you off, this pub is great. Food was excellent, portions were large and the staff were lovely. Lots of variety on the menu including a lot of vegetarian meals.

Thank you for your enlightening review. I would first like to thank the staff for their patience in dealing with some of our more, difficult customers. As for the "rundown, [sic] dank and dismal" atmosphere you experienced, the building is built on bedrock into the...More

We popped in for a meal while staying at the campsite up the road. The staff seemed very flustered and didn’t seem to know what they were doing, so service was quite slow, although they were all really friendly, and we got a free drink...More

Thank you for your review and thank you for your patience on what was an exceptionally busy day. The staff were flat-out all day.

This place is a traditional British pub in every sense...it reminiscent of pubs from yesteryears. We called in here for reasonably priced good food and that’s exactly what we got. A very warm welcome for us and our dog, an open fireplace, good tasty food...More
