Excellent traditional pub

Friendly pub with good beer and food at very reasonable prices. Nice staff and a pleasant dining room. The fish and chips were excellent, and provided proof that the chef is a Yorkshire lass!

Tried this at short notice and personally was disappointed. Should have taken more notice of one of the reviews!!!!! Who serves risotto on a bed of chips???? This plate arrived piled high, so many chips, not so much risotto, although what there was had lots of flavour. Please serve risotto either without chips or with them as a side dish... More

We now call in regularly, the food is well priced and of good quality, lots to choose from off the menu. Martin and Julie are very welcoming. The beers are good and parking easy. A very friendly atmosphere.

Stopped here for Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. We all had the Sunday lunch and dessert. There was pork or beef and we all had beef, they even did a smaller portion for my younger son. Plenty of choice too if you did not want Sunday lunch. Other nights they do specials too. They are closed on Tuesday. Staff... More

Friendly welcome, great selection of food, and served quickly ( which is vital for dining with small children!). Well priced and good location. Worth booking if you plan to eat, but 'drop ins' also welcome.

We've become regulars here mainly down to the lovely owners who are very accommodating. The food is very good and there's an ecellent choice for vegetarians. Our children also enjoy the friendly welcoming atmosphere a swell as the pool table and dominoes! We always leave feeling very happy and well fed! ☺️

Veg a big let down. A mix of cabbage,carrot,peas, one sprout,already on the plate - should be separate - I hate cabbage and even more so Sprouts!! Even the... More

We have passed this country pub on a few occasions and we always arrived too early to eat but this time we travelled especially to eat as my mother was staying with us in Bishops Castle. The menu is pretty extensive and with plenty of vegetarian options. It was a delicious meal served by lovely staff and represented great value,... More
