Excellent Pub Food

It was a good job that we had reserved a table as the pub was full when we visited. Noise levels were what you would expect for a full pub, this is not the venue to choose for an intimate romantic dinner. That said, the food was excellent; a starter of sprats with a spicy sauce followed by fish... read more

Found the Cott Inn on the internet as wanted somewhere nice for dinner that was dog friendly. Easy to book a table (and glad we did as it was packed!). Both of us opted for the local steaks and the meal was absolutely brilliant - beautiful food, well presented and good value for a more high end experience, The staff... More

Just had the most delicious meal at the Cott Inn. Staff very friendly, service excellent and the food was simply scrummy!!! The history embedded in the old stone walls adds to the feeling that you are somewhere special. Very reasonably priced too!!! Would not hesitate to recommend and we will definitely be returning.

The restaurant was booked by a relative and reading the reviews I expected a treat. On arrival the restaurant is in a great location and looks superb. It was however very noisy and chaotic. I started with crispy pigs cheeks which were a very small portion and tasteless possibly swamped by the mustard sauce. For main's I had the sole... More
