The lovely Julie, Dave and family took over the running of this pub in February 2015. We did not know the place under the previous people who we understand had run it down attracting bad reviews. Julie and Dave have certainly turned this place around and have brought back the locals who in are loving it! The feedback I had... More

Had an excellent meal despite a long delay due to an incredible response to a 2 for 1 offer in the local paper making exceptional value as the prices are very reasonable in any case. Lovely family run business that deserves to succeed.

Decore was a mixture of styles and the food wasn't that brilliant The menu was three pieces of paper on a clip board and the special board was out the way we never seen it till we were leaving. The staff were friendly and helpful car parking was minimal for the size of the place

We have just returned from the Chelston Manor, having been treated by friends. Carla normally has a poor appetite, but the food was so good that she nearly cleared her plate. We all had the Sunday roast, and I give it 10/10 the plates were hot and the meals piping hot, and we all ate too much. Absolutely superb, Thank... More

Reopened again! There was a limited menu when we had a meal, The food was good, and the service was OK.. The new landlord / landlady needs to engage with the locals a bit more, I would suggest. This is essentially a local pub that needs a lot of support if it is to survive. Time will tell..

Its the day after going to Chelston Manor after attending a friends wedding celebrations there. I so feel for the bride and groom. I think its disgusting that a couple that have paid an establishment to host their celebrations there have to put up with football coverage on the TV in the function room competing with the DJ, which they...

Dear Starchypig, Thank you for your post! However, I think that you should confirm the facts before going on a error strewn rant. Firstly, the bride and groom did not pay to hire the venue although they did pay for the DJ. The majority of the guests requested the football on the television; with the groom originally saying it would... More
