On the morning of our visit we received a short email to say that we could not stay - apparently some guests... More

This a beautiful pub in a lovely village. Quite a tranquil spot with a welcome team behind the bar. The beer was well kept and the food hit the spot. My wife and I didn't intend to eat. But when we spotted other diners with the house burger, we were immediately hungry. We ordered two, with a side order of... More

Went with friends recently for overnight stay. Assumed as there was no soap in the bathroom,to be an oversight. Not so. Apparently, they don't provide soap! Breakfast in the morning was a joke. The landlord appeared to be the only staff there. We waited 40 minutes for anything to appear on our table.....and I mean anything! There was no evidence... More

I had pre-booked a table for 1pm on Sunday for my family (7 people) and on arrival we were told that there was only one starter available - kidneys. Four of us ordered the kidneys - these took almost an hour to arrive. The young waitress apologised for the delay. The kidneys had not had the core removed and were... More

Chris S, Owner at The Black Pig, responded to this review

We are sorry that customers didn't experience our usual high standard of service and cuisine. However we are not prepared to tolerate rude and abusive behaviour to any of our staff. We appreciate all constructive criticism which is presented in the correct manner. In mitigation we were having difficulties with our chef who since then has been replaced. More

Myself and my partner stumbled across the Black pig. At a glance the building is phenomenal, which doesn't change when you enter the building. Lavished with black beams and a fire place, the cosy pub had a brilliant atmosphere. Myself and my partner picked up a menu, and was tempted by all of the food (Unfortunately we had to pick... More

This b&b is now under new management. Give it a go. Amazing food, clean and lovely landlords. Always doing great deals. Lovely large family rooms. Stay for the weekend, week day or even a week. You will never get bored of looking at this beautiful old building. Search the website for more info.

Booked here due to a special offer and the need for a place to stay before setting off to catch a ferry at the crack of dawn the next morning. Lovely little pub, cosy and warm although a bit empty (admitedly, it was Wednesday night in February). Food was lovely. Ample portions, well cooked and we managed a BOGOF offer... More
