A very warm welcome from the landlord, the lunch was superb in fact the roast was exceptional value for money. Chicken in tarragon sauce tasted beautiful. The garden was really pretty and relaxing. Disappointed I didnt leave room for one of the homemade puddings!! looking forward to going back for Friday steak night very soon. Excellent couldn't fault anything.

Ate an evening meal which was good as pub food goes with ample quantities and reasonable prices. The pub would benefit from fresh decoration but the staff did their best to make us welcome. Could not say how typical this might be, but noise from the adjacent bar area became increasingly rowdy as the evening progressed and it was a... More

All the food is home made and the portion sizes are generous. You always receive a warm welcome and the food can not be faulted. We only discoverd it after finding different places to use our taste card. We now go regularly and have never had any issues. There is a lovely big garden, the inside is tastefully decorated and...

Booked a room for our 39th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, the b&b confirmed it on Thursday morning. On Saturday half an hour before we were due to leave home the owner rang and asked "is that budgon" I replied my surname is Burden. She then said that "for whatever reason we are unable to offer you the facilities". Not only... More

For years I have travelled past the Blacksmiths Head on the school run and only ventured into the pub in the last few months. Although there is a saloon bar area with pool table, the separate dining area is well appointed and decorated. The food is very, very good and the Tuesday night specials on the homemade burgers (the pork... More

Sunday Lunch with friends. Good menu choice to suit all pockets. All the food was cooked beautifully and good size portions. Very good service with attentive staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely eat here again in this charming pub. Great fireplace that will be lovely on a cold winters day. Lovely garden too for summer... More

This pub/b&b is a very good place to eat and stay. The food is of very good quality and the breakfast was very good and is included in the £50 price per room. It is very good value. They are very flexible with times, when you arrive and also when the eight of us left. Nothing was any trouble. Would... More

The Blacksmith's Head is a delightful find for a lunchtime,relaxed gathering, lovely old world interior, plus a charming garden. The young lady behind the bar was both attractive and extremely helpful, taking my order with very careful attention - from a menu which offered almost endless choice from baguettes to main meals, our selection included burgers, chicken and "fish finger"...

There were several of us meeting up for lunch. We had in fact chose a different venue but when we arrived there it was shut! We then drove onwards to this pub. We were met by a friendly face behind the bar and she was very helpful and happy to see us. The sun was out although it was a... More
