Great food as usual, you can sit in the bar, snug or the back restaurant. Good service and friendly staff. One point - the decoration could do with a freshen up.

We received a lovely initial welcome at what has now become our local pub due to our moving house. Such a pretty pub from the outside and traditionally decorated inside with a relaxed environment. Great choice of drinks available, especially lots of gin and tonics so a must visit for G&T fans! It was nice to see a pub that... More

My husband and I visited this pub with our dog for the first time today. We are new to the area so we have been trekking around trying to find pubs that allow dogs and serve lovely food. Well, we were not disappointed. There were loads of dogs in this pub, which was awesome, but it didn't stop the staff... More

From Sunday lunch [excellent value] to fish and chips the food is always excellent. A real friendly village atmosphere and Malcolm prides himself on his first class real ales.

Visited this pub with my partner and 7 year old daughter. We was told to move from a window seat into a small depressing room as we had a child with us. Not very family orientated. They don't even stock drinks for children other than squash. The whole place just had an uncomfortable feel about it. Not a place for... More

I am so sorry you felt uncomfortable in our pub but unfortunately our licence only allows children into the snug or restaurant, we can't allow children in the bar as its against the law. You were asked very politely to move, this area is not depressing at all but as you wanted to sit in the bar no matter where... More

We have visited the Butcher and Beast several times and have never been disappointed. Excellent home cooked food, roast beef, pork or lamb plus two different potatoes and several vegetables served piping hot.
