We sought out the pub for lunch and were not disappointed with the atmosphere and warm welcome and the menu was extensive and beautifully presented. The service was great and we both opted for home-made pies (steak and turkey, leek and bacon). Both were served with well prepared and cooked veg and we followed on with home-made crumble, which was... More

A return visit was always our intention. We came for lunch and chose from the wide selection on the black board.. The order was taken and the food served in an acceptable time. We both chose the home made pie It was ok, but nothing special. It isn't expensive and they serve an adequate lunch time portion size. However its... More

We had an evening meal here on Thursday 31st July. There is a very wide ranging menu with something for everyone. I chose the goats cheese tart but in fact was told there was no goats cheese available so an alternative with nettle cheese was offered. This was a very interesting alternative - new to me but lovely. There was... More

A menu that has something for everyone. Quality food and lots of it, great value for money. We found the staff to be very friendly and attentive. Living in the Middle East, we look forward to returning to this pub each year for its fantastic food.

With a blackboard menu covering everything you can think of from simple gammon to game pie and spicy chicken salad, it took a lot of thought about what to order until I spotted the slow roast pork belly with black pudding and cider sauce at £10.95. The menu prices range from £7 to £17 for a main course. OH had... More

Having just completed a days hike in the moors above, I was looking forward to a swift pint before returning home. Upon entering The Punchbowl, I was met with a smiley happy greeting which was very welcomed. The place was packed with people having their Sunday lunch and the heavenly aroma from the kitchens wafted around the bar area. With... More

I visited this pub for food with some family members who were visiting as it looked nice when we drove past it and it had good reviews. The interior was nice and staff were friendly, but the food was terrible. I had a turkey and ham pie which was utterly tasteless, served with appalling oven chips, definitely not homemade ones....
