Second visit here unfortunately was a little disappointing. We were a fairly large group (10) for a family celebration and were unfortunately seated in a corner on a table with no access to move around the table on one side and very little space on the other. With 2 active toddlers this made for some frustration as they constantly disturbed... More

Thank you for your feedback. We aim to make sure that everyone is well fed and enjoy their time at The Hodd. Especially children as we have a family ourselves and we know how hard it is to please them. When I spoke to you at the end of your meal and we were talking about your two children who... More

We went to the Hoddington Arms last night and the service and food were fab. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Will definitely return and if they do another Groupon deal, even better!

We had lunch at 'The Hodd' for the first time yesterday (Thurs 19th Feb) and it certainly won't be the last. Although we used a Travelzoo voucher we would be just as happy to pay full price. The place was warm and inviting and the staff very friendly and welcoming. The food was exceptional for a pub and the service... More

Really enjoyed our meal. Polite but friendly staff with really good food in a rural location. We plan to go back soon.

Four of us visited this pub during february half term for a birthday celebration, and found very little reason to be there. On arrival we found it uncomfortably cold without our coats on. However we were in the mood to have a good outing and had arrived in good time for our booking (1pm), ensuring (we thought) a relaxing two... More

I visited the Hoddington Arms in early February with a few of my work colleagues. We wanted a quiet lunch in a nice location not too far from our office. The food was very good, I especially enjoyed the belly pork which I'd ordered. The staff were friendly and attentive, and overall this was an enjoyable visit. Would definitely recommend.

Recently I have had a lunch with my wife in a number of local pubs, but the best lunch I have had by far, is at the Hodd. When we visited recently I had, what was advertised as 'home made' beef and mushroom pie, I am always suspicious of pubs offering 'home made', but this pie was delicious, definitely home... More

The staff were friendly and attentive and the menu looked excellent. We were not disappointed with our starters but, unfortunately, the main course meals were all luke-warm. The roast beef was gristly and the portions not as generous as in other similar places, although this restaurant was on the more expensive side. The cream and ice cream served with desserts... More
