If only we had known how good it was going to be, we would have visited years ago!! A great, traditional village pub - warm welcome... read more

Stayed locally in Furzedon B&B for 3 nights. We were made welcome by staff and locals from the moment we stepped into the pub. We ate there every night afterwards. Good pub food - great chips - and good selection of beers and wines. Thoroughly recommended typical British pub.

There is a lovely bar with wood burner giving a really nice old traditional pub feel, excellent beers (well looked after), and a varied food menu. We had dinner in the snug... More

We arrived and was made very welcome, food served in small but cosy restaurant. We ordered a prawn cocktail jacket potato, so many prawns!! Scampi and chicken with chips served in a bucket, good portions! Would definitely visit again.

I have visited twice in the past few weeks and was not disappointed at all! The first time I had the baked Camembert starter which was a great portion and I didn't end up having a main! The second time I had a Sunday roast, blimey it was huge! More than generous! Absolutely lovely, great service! Couldn't complain! I will... More
