The crab sandwich was so delicious, and in such lovely surroundings. They even supply a blanket if you would like to sit in the Garden. We will be going back as soon as we can

Went here for Sunday lunch and it was amazing. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The food was first class, very well presented and very delicious. We came away feeling very satisfied and are already planning our next visit. A big thank you to all the staff.

We visited the Wise Man pub on 30th. September 2014 as we were staying in a B&B in the village, 2 mins walk away. The pub restaurant is capable of producing excellent food, so why am I complaining? The reason is that the main dish we ordered did not come as described and we were charged the full amount of... More

It's a shame we only found this pub on our last night in England .. however better late than never. The Wiseman has a very nice atmosphere and pleasant friendly service. It's definitely not in the cheaper catagory pub/restaurant but there again the menu selection was also definitely above average. Their Steak Pie is the best I've ever had outside... More

We stopped here for a spot of lunch today and were very impressed by the warm welcome we received. The children were well catered for both opting for the hand carved ham and eggs from the well crafted children's menu. I decided on one of the lighter bites, Bacon and brie sandwich which came served with a fantastic home made... More

Stopped for a snack lunch during the week. Welcoming staff, good choice of food, which was excellent quality, (we had trio of salmon and a crab sandwich, which came with a small bowl of soup), and some local beers. We were visiting the National Trusts Hardy's Cottage and Max Gate and it is well placed for a stop between these... More

We had a SUPERB Sunday lunch here and came back for an equally tasty weekday lunch. Food varied and plentiful, staff friendly, dogs welcome. It is worth paying more for such a wonderful pub. We will be back.

On a return Saturday night visit this pub was very busy, and noisy, as there's nothing to absorb the sound. The restaurant is at one end of the room and the bar is at the other. They let customers bring in dogs (this a country pub). Some tables have cloths, but otherwise the surrounding are simple. Quite an eclectic menu,... More

Excellent food, 4 different draught beers to choose from and very good service. Not the cheapest pub grub but worth it. Will return if in the area.
