Lovely pub

We visited the Falcon for lunch on 16th May, and are so glad that we did! The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and reasonably priced and the atmosphere was relaxed. We would definitely visit again.

I visited this local pub with a group of friends on a Friday evening, booking is essential as our table was booked for 7.15pm and it was already busy. There is a small menu comprising of a choice of steaks, a vegetarian option. fish and chips, fish pie and a couple of meat dishes, and what seems to be very... More

Visited here again yesterday. Was our turn to find a great place for lunch, we take it in turns with our friends every few months to have a meal out. We could have settled for a pub nearer our home town but have been so disappointed with various places on our doorstep the best place to eat is by far... More

We were staying in Poulton so could walk to The Falcon in 2 mins, a visit was therefore high on our list of places to go! The beer was a disappointment (not from a local brewery) but the pub itself and the food was excellent. Good service and an interesting menu which looks to change every month. We could see... More

Visited early evening 30 April; usual frequent booking. Not many customers at 18.45, so were given the usual warm welcome and escorted to the table for which we asked. Regrettably, from that point, it all went uncharacteristically downhill. The beer was flat, and the top of the menu fillet steak we ordered bore no resemblance to that previously, and regularly,...

We are obviously disappointed you didn't enjoy your last meal with us. You raise a few points in your review which are incorrect, which we would like to address so others do not get the wrong impression. We can assure you the meat you received was fillet steak on both occasions. We are at a loss to explain why your... More

Found this lovely country pub by accident on a recent trip to the Cotswolds. Very clean, well decorated and stylish, the surroundings were supplemented with outstanding service, and very good food at a reasonable price, try it!

This is essentially a country pub in a small village that serves fabulous food. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. We opted for the ham and chicken terrine and vegetable risotto for starters and excellent they were too. The rib of beef and the fish pie were good examples of their type. Pudding choice included traditional options... More

We like to try out different places locally and The Falcon did not let us down. A lovely country pub with a nice interior. Plenty of space around the tables so not crowded in - nice atmosphere and more importantly excellent food with good friendly service. Highly recommended and we will no doubt go back again.
