My wife & I visited The Martyrs for lunch after visiting Arlington Hall. The menu was a little limited and most items were a bit on the "pricey" side but the food was very good, well presented and plenty of it. The staff were also welcoming and efficient.

The only pub in the village is a a community hub. Good food is served here, so if you are feeling peckish, this is worth the stop. I've eaten here several times over the past few years and the food was been consistently good. On the other hand, the real ale could be better. There are only two choices but... More

7 of us family members ate Sunday lunch here last week. It has to be said it was one of the best carveries I've ever had. The meat was succulent and fresh. The vegetables were gorgeous and always being replaced as the dishes were not too large. The Yorkshires were going like,.... well,....like hot Yorkshires!!! It was delicious. We also... More

Decided to have a meal at the Martyrs Inn after a pleasant visit to Atlehampton House .We were given a very warm welcome and our meals of crispy beef followed by the steak and potato pie washed down with a very nice glass of wine hit the spot. The music was a bit intrusive for a while but was turned... More

superb local pub, well-thought out interior results in good atmosphere. Very friendly, great service and good food. One minus point - they have had at times had annoying pop music playing - which can and does spoil the atmosphere

Warm welcome, nice decor, great food and excellent specials evenings. We went for the curry night there were four different curries laid on, plus accompaniments, a starter, drink & Indian dessert very good value.

My husband and I had a Saturday lunch here recently en route for Bournemouth from Somerset. We had been before with friends and as this latest visit was on a Saturday in August we expected it to be as crowded as then. When we arrived there was only one other and even when we left there were only about a... More

Found the pub by chance when taking a detour to learn about the famous 'Martyrs'. The lunch we had was excellent. Great menu, great food, great service and great value. We selected the roasted vegetable tart, steak and potato pie, and the cheese platter, with local cheeses.
