Family friendly restaurant

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! ☺️

I had the pork lunch Four slices of Pork, apple sauce, roasties, new potatoes and the famous mix of veggies. I eventually managed it but although there is plenty of me it was a very close run thing.

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

Not bad but I won't rush back, the risotto was served on a bed of chips which made the chips go soggy. The portions are HUGE!

Enjoyed a Saturday night meal with friends to celebrate one of our parties birthday. On arriving at the pub we were a little concerned at its appearance and this concern remained with us when we entered the bar. However, we were immediately made to feel welcome and after ordering drinks we went through into the restaurant. We were given personal... More

Surprising menu in this un-prepossessing pub provided through many home produced ingredients. Home cured ham with, yes – egg and chips, is highly recommended. The ham just melted away in the mouth and was not at all expensive. One could say it was cheap, but not to belittle the quality. Highly recommended.

My wife and me remember Julie and Martin when they ran the Horseshoes at Berriew, and also after they took over at the Herbert Arms at Chirbury nr Montgomery. We had it into our heads that they had moved on again and as such haven't visited the Inn for some time, however, having decide to book for Sunday Lunch on... More
