Homely pub in a lovely country setting. Great garden with play area for the kids with nice views. We walked up from Bracelands campsite which took about 30 minutes. Two adults and two boys 13 and 9. One of the boys wanted whitebait for a main course (itwas a starter on the menu) and they were happy to accommodate him.... More

Enjoyed two meals on consecutive nights, both were wholesome and tasty. The generous proportions were more than adequate. The tastiest dish, was obviously their home made pie, which sold out by 8pm (even after an increase in stock on the second night). The steaks were also sold out. So eat early! The bar surface was completely covered in DOOMBAR mats,... More

As we were a little tired from our unexpected bike ride we decided to stop off on our way back. This is a lovely little place with a great atmosphere and garden. There is a huge car park with stunning views and once inside you can walk through to the garden out the back which has good sturdy new benches... More

We stayed at the Rock B&B, this as far as I know is the most local pub to it, it is within a 15 minute walk on the flat. Its what you would expect of a local in this area, open fires, beams, great garden, lots of exposed stone, I could go on for ever, the food is fantastic and... More

Called in for an evening meal and was very pleased we did. I had the cheese burger and chips which was very nice. My wife had the steak with a peppercorn sauce. Ordered it medium and it was ever so slightly under medium, which was a nice change as most other places massively over cook a 'medium'steak. She said the... More

Had a lovely meal in the beer garden and we could even take our family dog with us. Want to thank the staff for making us feel welcome , ,What a... More

This is a lovely traditional welcoming pub that does tasty meals . Free car park and plenty of seats indoors and outdoors . Only downside it's very popular and thus you may have to wait a while for meals after ordering !
