Ghanain buffet was a triumph.

We were unsure when we booked for 5 of our friends whether it was a good idea as we have no experience of the food of Ghana, but it was a true delight. The chef (I believe he was a guest chef just for that evening) came round to the tables but we did not get a chance to thank... read more

We love visiting the Robin Hood. Since the new owners took over, the improvements are noticeable each time. The food is good and staff friendly and attentive. The sweet shop is a nice addition however given the lack of shop in the village I wonder whether it might be possible to also stock milk/bread etc too? Either way this is... More

Apologies for your visit. We had been extremely busy and staff had also let us down. The kitchen is only small, and we had run out of plates as well as food. We do hope that you try us again, and make a point of letting us know when you are in, so that we can apologise to you. Suzanne

Sampled the fish pie and the Lamb pie - both excellent, with chips and seasonal vegetables. Veg were nicely cooked and the chips were excellent. It was early when we... More

We were delighted when the pub changed hands earlier this year. We're keen walkers so regularly pass through Rainow, so it's perfect for lunch and a pint. There have been some good improvements - particularly with the addition of an amazing sun deck out the back. The food is quite good and very reasonably priced but service can be quite... More
