Four adults and four children, dropped in for a Friday afternoon lunch on the way back from Devon. Lovely place, easy to find and good parking. They were welcoming and moved two tables to seat us all. Good kids meals (with excellent ice cream desert included) adults have very reasonable and well cooked baguettes for the adults. All in all...

Enjoyed a good night out in this pub set in the delightful village of Martinstown. The welcome was great and the beer excellent - straight from the cask. The pub was humming with activity and clearly popular with the locals and visitors alike. The menu was not as wide-ranging as many other places but we had no complaints. Would certainly... More

Popped in to this pub last night and wow, what a lovely night we had. First and foremost we wanted a pub that was dog friendly but also served good food for us! We were no disappointed. As we went through the door we were warmly welcomed and although the bar was busy being a Saturday they accommodated us (5)... More

Haven't got a bad word to say about The Brewers. Food is always top quality and very reasonable prices. Service is excellent and attentive within a cosy and classy environment. Love this place every time we come whether it be as a group of family or couple. Highly recommend the butternut squash curry too!

Met some friends here as it was roughly half way. Turned up without booking and were told our dog was very welcome to come in, despite them being busy. Lovely service throughout, very friendly. Food was good, I call it good honest modern pub grub, certainly better than your average gastropub. Seemed to be very popular which is nice to... More

Booked a table for lunch some weeks ago, from first email contact to arriving today we had the most welcoming and attentive service. Food was excellent, all lunches arrived piping hot with extra gravy. Vegetables all perfectly cooked, puddings recommended too if you have room. Thoroughly recommend, we enjoyed so much we booked again for curry night on Tuesday!

We visited this pub after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We arrived at 1.45 on a packed Sunday lunchtime the place was buzzing and welcoming. We hadn't booked but was given a table within ten minutes of arriving. The staff were really friendly and made us feel part of the community. We had roast... More
