Friendly and welcoming pub with a good choice of real ales and a very pleasing menu. Really enjoyed our meal especially the home made burgers and chips. Would recommend that you arrive before 7.30 as there is no booking and it starts to get really busy about then.

We were looking for somewhere to eat where we could take our dog and a number of people recommended this establishment. We arrived just after 7 pm and were able to secure a table in the bar area, dogs are not allowed in the main restaurant. My wife and I just had a main course as we weren't over hungry.... More

Three of us went for Sunday lunch. Rubbery pigeon breast and a couple of spoonfuls of crab for starters. Roast beef and lamb looked like they'd been boiled. Nice place. Well decorated. Clean. Friendly, casual service. Disappointing food. Great shame.

Service, food and real ale here were all brilliant. We ate in the restaurant attached to the bar. It was very well laid out, the menu was good and varied. Food really tasty and beautifully presented. Highly recommended.

Left Almouth on Friday after a super week. Had the best meal at the Bistro Thursday and on Friday morning we called in for a breakfast at ORL. There was only 1 other couple in. We ordered a full English and poach egg on toast. Over 40 minutes later the egg on toast arrived. Two dry slices of toast, no... More

went in here on a Saturday afternoon and an evening and it is a lovely pub. The food looked lovely and you can eat in the bar or dining room. The pub has a cosy feel with comfortable seats and cushions and a nice drop of Guinness too! Dogs are allowed and all the staff were friendly. We would eat... More

The seabass was tasty but a bit too buttery. My husband had the steak and ale pie and was really disappointed - no taste, chewy steak, soggy pastry. He didn't finish it which is not like him at all. It would have been ok if the meals were under £10 but they weren't. We came away feeling ripped off.

A lovely friendly pub. Lovely cider, especially the Thistlycross. We had a meal there on our second night. It was delicious. I had the lamb and my husband steak and ale pie. Both were perfectly cooked. I especially liked the slate plate that my lamb was served on. Will definitely be going back later in the year.
