We enjoyed really good pub food here in October as part of a holiday locally. A lovely welcoming atmosphere for dogs and their humans.

We popped in here for a beer and wished we didn't have the car - the beer was so good. Try the Buddah beer, a fantastic pint, easy to drink! The Landlord is an ex-matelot and very friendly. The pub has old world charm and an extensive menu. Whilst we didn't eat here, the food coming from the kitchen looked... More

Proper pub with real beer no yuppies drinking lager, a proper wholesum establishment with proper people from the village, what more do you want. Bar food as you would expect, parking around the green outside. Only thing missing was the log fire was not on will have to try another night. Village shop and post office plus a lovely church...

Was in the area and after reading the website reviews (which stated the pub had won awards) decided to have some lunch. The landlady is very friendly to the point of being slightly wacky but that didn't put us off. I ordered leek and potato soup and my husband ordered pate with salad. My soup turned up about 20 minutes... More

The Blisland Inn is a real pub, fantastic array of really well kept beers, ciders and lagers and proper pub food. Incredibly friendly locals and the bar staff are the most friendly and attentive I have ever experienced. Pubs like this are few and far between nowadays 'proper pub for proper people'.

We had read, in a Visitors Book, at our rented holiday cottage, that the Blisland Inn was so good, they one group (from London) had gone there twice in one week, so we decided to go. The improvements to the A30 were in progress at the time, with endless road closures and diversions. Our SatNav decided not to pay at... More

We dropped in for a lunch time drink, the Blisland Inn having been a CAMRA pub of the year and having been told by a local that it "didn't do food in the evening". Well he was wrong. We had a couple of drinks in the public bar - it also has a games room, a separate children's room (the... More

You couldn't wish for a better place to have a pint on a summer's day than this pub. In the beautiful village of Blisland, overlooking the village green & with views of the countryside beyond, this pub has a lovely selection of excellent real ales. To go with our drinks we decided to have lunch. What a mistake! My fish... More

We hadn't been to the Blisland inn since the kids were little so we thought that we would grab a quick roast before I had to go to work as it's really the nearest pub to us.
