We stayed in Sutton Poyntz for a couple of days over half term to do some cliff walkies wt our dog. The Springhead was the coziest pub nearby. Had a few drinks there during our stay and a meal on Halloween night. There were a lot of activities organised for young and old and it felt the whole village had... More

We've visited this pub a number of times in the 20 odd years that we've lived in the area & it has changed hands/chefs at least 3 or 4 times to my knowledge. Previously, its been good, bad or indifferent, but the people running it now are doing OK. In September, 7 of us went for the Sunday carvery, which... More

Had a great meal at the Springhead and felt the need to post a review as the service we received from the staff was excellent. We took my mother in law who has just discovered she is gluten intolerant (and a bit of a fussy eater). The staff could not of been more accommodating to the point where the chef... More

Very friendly place to visit. Even the dog came and said hello and decided it liked me stroking it.....for quite a long time. Had a decent pint and enjoyed beer battered fish with real hand made chips with the skin on.... very very nice. Not expensive for what it was and I would certainly go there again

We ordered two coffees, both of which were luke warm, and the black coffee I had tasted so awful I had to put some sugar in it. The sandwiches weren't much better. The 'three cheese and spring onion... More
