Really nice food in a local pub. Good sized portions and a nice Sunday roast. We even had a go at the quiz which was entertaining despite not winning!

Enjoyed a meal here with friends celebrating a birthday. We had a table booked for 7:30, and where seated promptly. We placed our drinks order, however where informed there will be a 45 minute wait for our meals due to being short staffed. We proceeded to order our food, and after the wait the friendly waitress brought out our meals.... More

to have a local pub like the Pointers - having just had our usual late lunch / early tea on a Saturday I had forgotten how good the Pate Ploughman's was (having eaten the fantastic fish & chips for almost every week for the past 12 months). As my wife & son couldn't quite manage to finish their lunch (as... More

First visit - the beef sandwich was so awful that I could not chew it - I left it and gave feedback. I have never complained about a... More

A table of 9 on New Years Eve in a busy pub would be enough to crack the smile of most waitresses, but not at the Pointers Inn. Amazing service and even better food made our night. There wasn't a thing on either the menu or specials board that wouldn't have sat comfortably on any Michelin rated Gastro Pub. I... More

We visited here for my sisters birthday on the 29th December. My family spoke highly of the pub and so I had high expectations. I'm pleased to say that I was impressed and we had a great night. The bar was busy but we were served courteously and directed to our table. The waitress was attentive and friendly, ensuring we... More
