A group of us car fanatics visited here on a nice evening, I ate and my partner didn't. Prices- quite high. I ordered the "Cajun spiced black bream with mango salsa" off the fish board. (Put in quote marks because that is exactly what was wrote on there.) As you can see above, the description is... read more

Found this place on the Internet for my birthday celebration. Went with family and very surprised of the food. The food was excellent and friendly service . We seat in the restaurant and it was very cosy. They did not rushed us or pester us for time. Lovley views from the outside. After the great service and food we went... More

A genuine old fashioned rural hostelry. The situation is truly rural with outdoor seating on lawns. The bar is rustic with a large selection of beers and ciders and bar games. It is host to local beer and cider festivals at Bank Holidays. The restaurant produces high quality food. Booking is essential - however the staff are recruited locally as... More

My wife and I were staying at Clytha Castle about 500 yards down the road from the Clytha Arms. The house keeper said the pub was good so we thought we would try it. We arrived around noon and were told they didn't start serving food until 1230. So, we ordered a pint and coffee. As we drank our drinks... More

We went there as a party of five adults and 6 children for a Sunday lunch. The people behind the bar (kids) had no clew about customer services or about bar work - two or our party had virgin mary's and were served a tomato juice, no ice, or lemon or anything else - when we asked for the rest...

Excellent, plentiful food at good prices, check menu on web site. We drove here so didn't sample the wine. Daily Specials menu was superb, we had Char Grilled Salmon with asparagus & salad, and Bourride of fish & shellfish, a fish & shellfish stew (lobster tail, mussels, clams, large prawns & 2 x white fish fillets) with a selection of...

Lunch here over Easter. Service at bar good but slow when we ordered from the table. Seemed to be only one waitress serving. When the meals came they varied from excellent (the duck) to great (pollack and chips) to ok (sandwiches - too thick and butter overpowering the filling). Still it was good value for money.

Four of us ate here recently and despite traffic holding us up and missing our booking by almost half an hour they were polite and accommodating and offered us a table in the bar next to the open fire. The food was lovely, good Sunday lunch choices with a wide wine selection. Having not been here for a few years... More

Four of us well travelled 60 plus year old foodies visited for Sunday lunch. Nice atmosphere in the two bar and lounge rooms with open fires and an excellent selection of real ales so well done. Our starters were good but we were all let down by the main courses, the beef was tough and no seasoning, rabbit was ok... More
