Lovely place

What can I say. This little pub is brilliant. The food is absolutely lovely. Their chips are the best. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Just go!

Living in Broadway we feel very lucky to have such an outstanding local that serves great food and drinks. Our last meal was delicious and the triple cooked chips are to die for. The service Paul, Sarah and the staff give is consistently exceptional and they just add to the warm atmosphere that you experience as soon as you walk... More

Our local' and some of the best gastro pub food you will find. Exceptional reputation for their varied and imaginative fish dishes. Triple cooked chips a total diet killer. Puddings...groan, what can I say? Great ambiance for the pub and dining areas...just go! (but book!)

Found on TripAdvisor whilst passing through and glad we stopped. Excellent green olives, steak and two fish dishes. We recommend eating here.

We live just over 10 miles away, but make the trip fairly regularly, as the food, drink and warm welcome make this the best choice in the area for us.Once again, we were not disappointed.The pub always has a good mix of people there to eat and/or drink- always a good sign. Wish we had as good a 'local'.

A group of 6 of us stopped off en-route to Saunton Sands for a Saturday Lunch recently. Conveniently located just off the A303, this immaculate village pub was ideally located for our lunch stop. The pub itself looks to have been recently renovated to a high standard. The staff were very welcoming and looked after us extremely well. The cosy... More

Liked it all, great food menu and wine selection. Dessert was a real treat. I recommend staying for the breakfast alone.

This place had been recommended by various friends so we thought we would give it a try. Unfortunately we were 'fitted in' prior to a table of 43. Had we known that, we probably wouldn't have gone. We waited 40-45 mins for our meal, which is far too long. The meal was ok but nothing special. My view, don't accept... More
