This was a pub unfamiliar to us but friends invited us to join them for dinner one Friday night. They were right to recommend it, as it offered some delicious food and very attentive service. The menu choice was extensive including both old favourites and some more unusual dishes. A very enjoyable evening. Many thanks.

Ate here for my birthday and had the salt and pepper spare ribs for starter with fish and chips for my main course. The ribs were excellent and not fatty like in some restaurants. Moving on to the fish and chips, the fish was very large and fried to perfection. The chips and mushy peas were also delicious. Very pleased... More

Visited here by chance as our intended location was closed but we were very pleased that we did, as the food, service and ambience were very good. Look forward to our next visit.

We were part of a large group who booked a table for Saturday night at the Davenport Arms. We arrived early and spent an hour at the bar, next to the coal/log fire, served by very pleasant bar staff. The surroundings were very clean and all nicely presented. We were taken into the restaurant at the allotted time and enjoyed... More
