A six hour car journey deserves a special break and the Five Dials was well worth the hop off the direct route. So much so, we booked in for Sunday lunch on the way back. Excellent meals twice and would recommend it to anyone, very busy. Just a shame I was driving as the beer was nice too.

Both the fresh fish as well as the other foods on the menu are cooked to perfection and perfectly flavored. Local beers on tap are also very nice to drink.

Good food, worth the detour. Pub a little lacking in atmosphere. Landlords a little disinterested, the pub somewhat sterile but seemingly a good local clientele.

Whether you are a couple wanting a quiet dinner, a group celebrating a birthday, a family having Sunday lunch, a bunch of lads and lasses watching the 6 Nations rugby, or on your own reading your book in the corner, Sarah and Paul always make you feel right at home. No nasty packets of peanuts or cheap snacks, only the... More

Another lovely lunch at the five dials. Lots of fish dishes on offer, managed to steer myself away from the fantastic fish and chips this time and had mackerel fillets followed by brown sugar meringues. Service great, atmosphere friendly, food wonderful as ever. I am always pleasantly surprised by the bill, too, as food of this quality usually carries a... More

Had an excellent Sunday roast today. Great beef with some tasty vegetables, not like some of the bland veggies some places serve up. Also excellent friendly service as usual.
