Popular and deservedly-so

Loved the quirky menu that offered tapas-style bar snacks as well as reasonably-priced and imaginative mains. The restaurant area is small and gets quickly-booked. Very popular with locals. You can eat in the bar also, but this, too, gets very busy. Great beers and ciders. The wine is pricey-ish... read more

Seem's they have a new chef! we had lunch there and the food had improved a lot since our last visit so its on the list again. It's always good to support local places but they have to keep an eye on quality. The management here obviously have and well done for that.

Amazing pub to eat at. Fresh baked bread and even hand churned butter supplied free. I had Smoked Mackerel starter followed by Pulled Pork and then Sticky Toffee Pudding with Clotted cream. The food was great the Ale was lovely and service with a smile. All for 20 quid. After coming all the way from New Zealand this was a... More

Went there for light lunch, great food and friendly service, well behaved dogs also allowed to visit! Interesting and imaginative menu which was refreshing and looks like there is a lot going on in the evenings. Highly recommended!

My Partner and I celebrated my birthday at the Coldstreamer in Gulval. The service was efficient and friendly. The choice of food was very good and not too extensive. We enjoyed our dinner immensely! The flavors of the beautifully presented dishes were exquisite and beautifully cooked. The desert that we both had was little short of Heavenly I will be... More

The husband and I visited yesterday for lunch yesterday after hearing good things about the coldstreamer. I was unsure when we first walked in as it looks a little tired and worn....service was good and the waitress was friendly.....food was absolutely delicious! We had 3 courses, all of which were amazing, the portion sizes were just right. The venison starter... More

I first visited The Coldstreamer in Gulval during October 2013. At the time, I considered the pub to be a real gem as it offered excellent, good value food. This year I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the standard has improved even further. Over this last week I have been fortunate enough to visit The Coldstreamer on a number... More

Visited the coldstreamer a couple of times for a meal. I have to say to get value for your money your better of going for the early dinner menu. The customer service needs improving on our last visit we felt that we were a massive inconvenience and every order was a huge chore for the waiter.
