Traditional British pub

This is how an old sea dog like myself remembers pubs as they used to be, friendly, cheap beer, good atmosphere and no awful music. Plus I could watch the rugby in peace. A real treat.

As this review with only the title flagged up a red warning, I am now obliged to write something. My friend and I arrived and as my husband, who booked our hotel for us, had shown me the 'street view' on the computer, I picked up that we were staying at the Lady Hamilton! My friend asked me the name... More

Real home made Sunday lunch it really is nice, make sure you book in advance, in fact make sure you book for any meals in the restaurant, they have very few tables but are always busy, if the locals eat here you know they have something right

This nice old fashion pub is good on food and a quick drink if you are at midday or early evening. The staff is friendly and very helpful on all things.

Just about everything had been run down. No white wine, no proper draft beer and we were lucky to get a meal. Last night (14 September) was The Lady Hamiltons' current owners farewell. Actually it was like intruding on a wake for someone you didn't know. It's for sale but I wonder if anyone will stum up the asking price... More

We were staying at a hotel next door but our accommodation didn't have an area to dine for dinner, the front desk recommmened going to the Lady Hamilton. Yes it is Pub Grib but it was tasty and huge servings, good wine and ales.

Cosy as there was a party of 16 but all meals were lovely. Some not been before and they were impressed. Very good value for money, efficient service. I have been coming here particularly on a Sunday lunch for a few years and always had a good meal.

On my own on a Sunday I got the impression I was late and they wanted to close so just had a drink and left. Small place that does rooms and is close to The Keppel's Head Hotel
