On a warm sunny day we stumbled across this pub which looked lovely from the outside. Nice hanging baskets and the windows wide open to show the tables set for lunch. The staff were very pleasant and very prompt with drinks and food. The meals were average price and quality - nothing spectacular.

We did a day run to Bradford on Avon and raved about this lovely little town. For lunch we tried the Dandy Lion and were impressed.

I went with the prawn sandwich... More

A great atmosphere with excellent food and has managed to be consistently high standards for years. Drinks rather more expensive than the rest of town but always a nice visit

We dined here on a Monday evening and got the last table available. I think this may be because they are doing 2 for 1 before 7pm Monday - Thursday. The meal was just lovely. There was a really good choice available, and not just your typical pub grub. The service was very good too. We paid full price and... More

It was one of the few things that were open on a sunday... We both had some really nice food, especially the chips and our deserts. Great selection of ales and the atmosphere was excellent. Wonderful sunday evening!

Even though we were obviously Yanks, we were treated like valued guests, food was great, xlint variety of ales and some lagers (for my wife), Friendly, but not too noisy. Nothing was lacking, home away from home.
