Superb All Rounder!

Martinstown is a linear village easily missed if transiting on the main coast roads. But if found you will not be disappointed. A lovely old school village pub modernised for today's market but not a over modern fashion pub! Firstly the staff are fantastic they can not do enough to help, advise on... read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here, with a varied menu and specials board. Something for everyone, the service was great and you weren't waiting an eternity for your food either. The owners were really friendly and made you feel welcome. Would recommend highly to anyone in the area.

An excellent friendly pub for real ale enthusiasts. Great pub food in a relaxed atmosphere. The beers are good, but just can't quite match the quality of those of my own town, Nottingham.

Really enjoyed the food at the Brewers Arms, but only managed a main course, as it was so filling. Remember to book a table, if you want to eat, as it gets booked up.

Extremely friendly. Lovely notice saying dogs should be brought in and are welcome and not left in cars! Very smart inside and my husband had steak pie which was delicious. I had Thai beef curry but it was not as good as in a proper Thai restaurant. Vegetables just slightly overcooked. Well worth a visit but stick to the British... More

Great family run village pub, the Brewers us the heart of this community and yet makes travellers very welcome. Two outstanding bedrooms and superb pub grub.

The team are very friendly and child tolerant-although all the children in our group are pretty good. Food was plentiful, clearly all home made, lovely choice of veg that the kids all tucked into and the meat was excellent quality. Desserts are ridiculously indulgent and fab -best ice cream (cool flavours)! We had booked in advance as our friends know... More

We decided to eat here when we were passing one Sunday lunchtime. It was very busy and all the tables were taken, so after speaking to the gentleman behind the bar we decided to have a drink and sit out in the garden. Within 15 mins he came out and told us there was a table available. The staff were... More

Husband and self ordered a steak pie and a red Thai curry with chips earlier today. 20 minutes wait or so but the everyone's meals seemed to arrive at once! Beautiful food, well presented. Very attentive staff, asking if everything was okay. Will definitely visit again.
