I must echo the comments of the previous guy. We arrived on Monday lunchtime for a spot of lunch after walking in the village and unfortunately it was the only day that they did not serve food, however the new Landlord, Jim, said that he would happily make a sandwich for both of us which he did... read more

We stayed at the Robin Hood over two nights - 20 and 21st February. We have stayed several times before. However, this was definitely our worst experience. On the first morning the chef arrived late to prepare breakfast ( we understood as there had been a light fall of snow). However, this happened again this morning. The chef had not... More

Called in for Sunday lunch expecting a Carvery but no longer available so we ordered beef roast from the menu.The meat was tough and inedible and the vegetables nearly raw. Dirty cutlery and slow service.All very disappointing especially as we were out to celebrate a birthday. We asked for a refund for the food which we did get.

Some places don't need to be flash when the hospitality is this good. Jim our landlord and host had only taken over the place 2 weeks prior but the level of commitment he showed to us made us feel so comfortable - and willing to go back. We were arriving NYE after the kitchen was going to close at 5...... More

I feel i should mention that the food and ambiance of this pub is lovely. However whilst tucking into a lovely steak baguette and my companion having fish and chips. The staff (Management) started having an all out family row, language was not pleasant. and to be honest we feel insulted that they felt that this is acceptable in front... More

Good place to stay - unbeatable value. See my review of the above. Trip Advisor need to improve the search, location finding and identification and rationalise the listings.

Went with a group of 4 friends for a mid week meal. The Robin Hood is a traditional pub, very homely. The staff are very friendly. We had a mixture of meals from the traditional type of pub menu. I had a pot of tea, the steak and cheese burger and a chocolate brownie dessert. It was all really lovely... More

Had a lovely meal with a young family today. Superb chips and nicely made sandwiches. The rest of the menu looked really impressive for a pub. We will be back as the food is clearly excellent. Beer garden is nice too and was lovely in the sun. Recommended.
