Excellent food - homemade chips are particularly good

Decent pub with a fire and proper beer. Food is excellent and it is good value especially at lunch for the quality of dishes. Cannot tell you the quality of deserts, never get that far due to the generous portion size.

Lovely homely pub, with welcoming staff and a nice wood fire warming the place on what was a cold winter evening. We hadn't booked a table, but managed to get one, but I would advise booking as...

The Smisby is such an unassuming pub but the food is on another level. Great steaks always heaps of specials. Food always arrives piping hot not service lamp warm like most places. Service always spot on. Really well priced. 5 stars. Visited Feb 2015 for the millionth time

Been here on many occasions and always had good meal. Sunday lunch is excellent. Large varied menu. My only minor complaint is that you only get the choice of chips and peas or potatoes and veg. I don't like peas, and they won't do chips and veg. I think they should be a bit more flexible.

It's a quiet pub with a restaurant vibe to it. Great food at reasonable prices. Great staff. Comfortable. Great for taking the older members of family. Or for family meals.

6 of us went for a birthday meal in September, the service was good but the food was fantastic never tasted steak like it, I want the recipe for the black pepper sauce. Home made chips were to die for. Just can't wait to go back.
