This pub is one of the best pubs I have ever been to and this is the pub I take my family too every time they come over the food and service is phenomenal. And the atmosphere is an old English cottage which is lovely. And the views from the pub is spectacular. Highly recommend. :-)

6 of us went for a Sunday lunch carvery in May, celebrating a birthday. All enjoyed the carvery very much. Excellent choice and very nicely cooked food all round. Slightly more expensive on a Sunday than in the week.

We had heard reports of the Punchbowl Inn - all good I might add - and we were not disappointed. Our visit was on the spur of the moment on a Wednesday. The place was full to the rafters (beams in this case) but, fortunately, a table for two had just been vacated. The waiter told us that booking a... More

Visited today for Mother's Day and it was their AGA carvery. I normally dislike carvery meals because they are too ordinary and easy to knock up at home. The Punchbowl Inn, however, has completely reversed ny opinion. The meal was perfect. Plenty of luscious meat, tasty and fresh vegetables, yorkies like my mother used to make and thick homemade gravy.... More
