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.

Had a pleasant Sunday lunch not exceptional but reasonably good price was mid range and portion size was average service was okay but the waiter would not bring condiments and Told us to go back to the bar from the beer garden which was odd seeing as the waitress brought them out for everyone else
