We've eaten here recently a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed it on both occasions. The menu is great - lots of choice for starters and mains and the quality of food is superb. Today I had the fish cake starter which was very tasty, with a lovely salad and delicious citrus mayonnaise and spicy sweet chilli sauce. For mains... More

Due to this we decided to return yesterday for his birthday. Lovely meal, little bit disappointed that there were no burgers left even though we were there early at 6.30 (it only opens... More

We decided to go out for a meal and chose The Davenport Arms because of the website menu. It was busy and had a real buzz about the place. The staff were friendly and attentive and we both had superb meals. We couldn't find fault with any aspect of our evening and will certainly go back. Terrific quality of food... More

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.
