As a lot of the local pubs/ restaurants in Ripley are a bit pretencious foodwise, and have visited the 'Jovial' plenty of times, decide to try out The Saddlers, i hadnt heard anything much about it - which is a shame as its quite nice! A quick look at he reviews prepared me - and a peek at the online menu confirmed it worth a try.
It is a bit past its sell by decor wise, but is full of character. The greetings were friendly, service good, and food very acceptable. We wanted a place to chat and catch up with visiting friends, and get a reasonable filling lunch. The Saddlers hit the spot. Unsure of our timings, i checked serving times, and was told If your in before 2.30 your fine. We were - and it was. Portions quite generous, i was particulary happy with my Burger, enough salad and chips, and huge tasty burger. I would go there again and recommend lunch, look beyond the wonky kitchen door, discoloured paint, see an old british pub, the likes of which are disappearing.
