Good Value

Came upon this by chance. Unpretentious pub, but excellent evening meal, good value and friendly service. Generous portions nicely presented.

Hair found in food, veg barely cooked and a weird combination for a roast because there was courgettes!!? roast potatoes hard and unpleasant to eat. Very small portions wasn't sure wether I has been mistaken to be given a child's portion by accident. There was no extra gravy given and a small amount of veg to share between a lot... More

Dropped in for an evening meal as we were staying nearby, the food was excellent and good value - around £50 for two with a bottle of wine and a couple of beers. Nice ambiance, looked like it had been recently redecorated.

The food was too expensive for pub grub. I had the beef pie. The vegetables & potatoes were perfectly cooked & hot but the pie was disappointing. The meat was lean but needed seasoning & the pastry was uncooked. My husband had the burger - which was really small. It came in a decent bun but the chips were poor... More

Went with family and had a mixture of starters mains and desserts. All food was very good quality and could not fault it. The only downside was the dining area was cold so could do with the heating turned on!

Delighted you enjoyed your meal. I'm so sorry you were cold. We have underfloor heating which is always on, it does take a few days to adjust to being turned up or down. I hope it won't put you off visiting us again. If you do and are cold again, please mention it to a member of staff and we'll... More

My sons enjoyed their meal. My pork and cider pie was rather bland and the pastry was a soggy mess. My partners fish was lovely but was let done by frozen chips. Fantastic real ales.

Decided to eat here for lunch and weren't disappointed. Had fish and chips, a treat for us, and it was really delicious. Crispy batter, juicy fresh fish and non oily chips. Pretty quiet in November but cosy with pleasant staff.

Good atmosphere and decor. Well patronised by locals but also welcoming to passing holiday makers like us. The hosts were very genial and chatty. The food was delicious and very generously proportioned. All the ingredients where possible seemed to be local and/or organic ( a well dressed and imaginative salad is always a good sign I think.) The homemade burger... More

Went in there really craving a steak which was tasty but was slightly small. Also why do all burgers cost over £10 now? Other people enjoyed their meal and the Doombar was flowing well
