My husband and I visited recently for our 1st wedding anniversary. Beautiful log cabins with everything you need and great value for money. All staff are very welcoming and the roast beef Sunday dinner was amazing. Can't wait to visit again :)

From our very arrival to our departure we could not have been made to feel more welcome. Staff, and in particular the owner, were excellent in all aspects. We could not find anywhere in the vicinity for the price and felt that it was excellent value for money. The pub was delightful and the lunches that we had were great... More

My partner and I visited in May for my 22nd Birthday, and I wasn't so sure what to expect but I should trust in his taste after all as this place was beautiful. Our cabin was immaculate, and I thought it was so lovely that the pub supplied milk and bread. The bed was very comfortable, and the views of... More

My friend and I recently arrived at The JT after a six mile bike ride around the area. We decided to stop at the JT to partake of some lunch and a drink before we carried on the other half of our ride. Unfortunately when we arrived the pub was closed for the afternoon - we had incorrectly assumed it... More

We stayed overnight in one of the cabins. It was very comfortable and reasonably priced. We had some breakfast left for the next day. Lovely walking nearby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely visit again.

Thankyou for hosting my party yesterday. Lovely environment for an afternoon barbecue. Everything went as planned and was enjoyed by all. The conservatory opening up onto the outside seating area is perfect for this type of event. Would recommend this venue.

This is the 5th year in a row we have visited, as a couple initially and now with a toddler. This year 16 of us went, 4 couples and 8 children under 5. We had a fab time. Lots of room to run, wine and beer a stones throw and very accommodating staff. Highly recommend. Thanks Nick and team.

Such a wonderful setting and so lovely to be able to take the dogs in however when UHT cream is served, as far as I'm concerned it's all down hill, and it was. Tasteless chips, yes as previous reviews have said the beef was lovely, everything else average. Very friendly staff, not the place for me however, and shows why... More

Last visited this establishment in December, 2014 and wanted to return. Wasn't disappointed ! Was invited by friends, and the party of 7 of us had a most enjoyable lunch served by super staff with excellent ambience. Excellent selection of real ales and the food is extremely good. highly recommended.
