Had our Christmas meal at the Freke on the 12th of December. The meal was fantastic and great value for money. Staff were really lovely, and couldn't do enough for us. Best roast potatoes I have ever tasted!

This is one of my favorite places to eat. The food is amazing and excellent value for money. Staff are really welcoming and the place feels warm and friendly. My favorite meal is the steak, mushroom and ale pie. No other place I have tried can come anywhere near to that yummy pie.

i had a very nice meal at this pub this evening. Our party all selected meals from their special Xmas menu. The duck was a little bit tough but apart from that, the meals were very high quality. The atmosphere was great. Would definitely recommend this place to others.

just been out with the in-laws for a birthday celebration. What a well prepared meal. Cooked to perfection, with excellent service from the landlady and her excellent bar staff. Rest assured we will be back again and again. The beer, as always was excellent -worthy of a good cask pub! Well done everyone.
