Fabulous pub/restaurant. Very warm and welcoming with gorgeous food. Slightly expensive for an everyday evening meal, but certainly worth it.

Booked a table for 2 at this pub/restaurant after checking reviews on various establishments in the region of our holiday home. A warm, friendly welcome from the landlord as we entered. Very tastefully decorated interior in keeping with the area and building. As expected from the name, each table was candlelit, but good additional lighting too. We visited on a... More

Lovely local pub, buzzing and welcoming. Plenty of staff all on the ball. Table appearance great, bread and butter to nibble on. Execellent food, not cheap but mid price for a good location. Will be back especially when log fires are burning.

Fisrt time visit to teh Candlelight Inn last night - Every village needs a pub like this. Warm welcome, lively locals, fantastic food and ample ales. One slight negative woudkl be the speed of service, but the pub was packed with diners.

Liked? Everything disliked? - nothing. The candlelight may be hidden away from the centre of things and long may it stay so as this is a gem in our dining choices - we don't want everyone finding out about it so don't pass this review on!!
