Booking into the B&B next door, we were recommended to ring and book a table for dinner. When we arrived, the pub was already quite busy (lots of visitors and local custom- always good) so we took our drinks and menus to sit in the garden area. We went in to order our food and sit at our allotted table. The young lady was very informative about the dishes on the menu and we were delighted to hear the ingredients were locally sourced, Our starters were delicious and we had a little rest before the main course, enjoying the banter in the busy bar area. The mains were just as exquisite as the starters, the burger was particularly tasty! Full to bursting we went back next door, very glad the pub was next door!

My son took me for Father's Day along with various members of the family. Two of us had a starter, the black pudding potato cake and poached egg. Very, very tasty potato cake and a perfectly poached egg. This was followed by a roast. The beef was pink, very tender and v dry tasty. The pork was moist and tender. Some had dessert and they all had something good to say about them, especially the ice cream. Washed down with a refreshing pint of bitter, a light golden colour and hoppy. Wonderful.

Staff were really friendly and we all enjoyed our meal. The only downside was the beef as I like mine well done, however staff took it away and gave me a new piece of meat. Very good service.

We stopped at the B&B next door to this pub, and when we arrived was advised to book in advance as it was a Bank Holiday weekend. I rang and got a table, when we arrived it was quiet, but trade soon picked up, some of the items on the menu was unavailable, but this was understandable due to it being a busy weekend, but alternatives were provided. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and didn't force an order, giving time to decide. The food, you could tell was local produce, and it tasted great. The decision was made before just to have a main, but the food looked and tasted that good, we opted for desert too! I highly recommend the apple and cinnamon crumble for desert. This place wasn't on our agenda when we came to visit Newark, but I'm so glad we came across it!

Very good food. We were impressed by the quality. It does get a bit crowded and can be a bit noisy when it does. We would be happy to return.
