Myself and my husband frequently visit the Pointers, we were there again this evening for his birthday celebration. The staff are always friendly and look like they enjoy working there. They are always helpful and polite. I have never had a bad meal here, I can recommend the new church pie and the pavlova. There is not another venue on... More

We have been here twice now and it has been fantastic both times. We tried the Newchurch lamb pie which was delicious. Plenty of it too! The service was great and it was very cosy and warm inside on a cold December evening. It's a proper English country pub! I would highly recommend!

A minor niggle, but this place is so popular that you simply have to book in advance. The reason is simple, the food, and the service, is excellent! Though the pub is seemingly in the middle of nowhere, it has a large car park, but is not well served by public transport. For those who don't mind driving, but abstaining... More

Was recommended to visit the Pointer Inn Newchurch by my sister and was not disappointed. Lovely pint of London Pride bitter followed by an excellent meal. Started with chicken liver pate and main meal of Pork belly with black pudding mash and crispy crackling plus nice selection of fresh vegetables were excellent. Quick efficient service. One of the best pub... More

This is one of the nicest cosiest atmospheric pubs we have ever been in. The staff were very friendly and made us very welcome. The food was wonderful. Vast choice, something for every taste and Beautifully served. We ate there 3nights in a row and had something different every night. Highly recommend.

I ate here with 3 friends today, its the first time any of us had been but had been told by lots of people it was good so thought we would give it a go. I cant say a single bad word about the meal, it was really delicious and we all left happy. Will definitely be going back in... More

Have visited this lovely Country pub for many years. So were expecting the same quality of food we have had before, but very poor quality, beef , I enquired was it served rare or pink, to be told it was medium. But it was hard and over cooked. The rest of our party had lamb, not good! This was just... More

What a great find.. a really nice and welcoming pub. Stylish decor, clean and bright. The food is not cheap but is good value (always distinguish between price and value). The house 'pie' really is wonderful. If I was going to nit pick, it would have been so good to have the fire and candles lit for additional ambiance, and... More
