Please , update website

Nice food , attentive staff but please , update your website in terms of prices , if you advertise a deal online then customers reasonably expect that , but that aside it's a friendly pub and would eat there again and recommend.

A friendly and warm welcome and was also dog friendly. The food was good and the fact that it was also cooked to order and not ready prepared was good it was also plentiful

Went for a family meal whilst out camping. Was surprised by the decor inside, which was nice and clean. Greeted by friendly staff. When food came, I was a little shocked by the standard. My husband had veg with his pork loins. The swede is the cubed frozen, we know it was frozen as the middle of them was cold.... More

Thank you very much Claire for taking the time to write your review. Very sorry that you didn't enjoy your meals but i would like to assure you that other than the peas all our vegetables are bought fresh and prepared in our kitchen. Your complaint wasn't passed to the kitchen at the time which is dissappointing as both chefs... More

We were lucky enough to visit the pub twice for food and drinks while we were camping close by. All food was home cooked, presented beautifully and very tasty. I used to visit this pub when visiting grandparents 30 yrs ago so was great to visit and reminisce. Will definitely visit when in the area again.

took my son here for his birthday and was allowed to put balloons and banners up on our table which added an extra special touch to his meal, especially when his cake came out and other diners sang happy birthday to him. We were all very satisfied with our meals 3 of us had the lasagne and it was outstanding... More

Fantastic cuisine, lovely hidden gem of a pub with beautiful surrounds and a brilliant play park just a two minute stroll from the door.

We have just moved into the village and have been to the Cromwell Arms a few times for a drink and a meal. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming and the food and beer have been very good. We are very pleased to have this pub as our local.

Very friendly and welcoming. Food rather dull. A steak and kidney pudding arrived in a bowl and was surrounded by a deep pool of unctuous brown fluid pretending to be gravy. The pudding's innards were tough with only a little flavour. There was no effort apparent in the preparation of this dish. I had the worst of it but all... More
