We had a family meal here on Saturday night over bank holiday. The food and service was great. Definitely recommend, but make sure you book.

We have just spend another week in Bradwell, eating out only at the Bowling Green. The pub is just want you want in the countryside, warm, welcoming with excellent food and friendly service. Every year we visit Bradwell, sometimes with family and everyone always wants to visit here before we've unpacked. Definitely be back.

I went with two friends for a meal on Boxing Day. This is such a lovely country pub, homely, friendly, clean. Even on Boxing Day,the carvery was £9.95 which was amazing value. The food was very good. As I don't eat meat, a cod loin was provided for me. I could certainly recommend.

We enjoyed our stay at this inn. The room was clean and comfortable but small. Our only complaint was lack of space for our luggage. We were surprised at how quiet it was. We were happy to have a first floor room with bath. The breakfast was very nice and the time was convenient. The staff was friendly and efficient.... More
