We were staying on a campsite nearby and had this pub recommended to us. Booked and table the previous day, which was a good job as the place was heaving. Despite being busy we were greeted and shown to our table quickly. All the staff we encountered were friendly and efficient. The pub itself is beautiful, traditional and cosy. Good... More

Wanted a traditional inn that served top quality food and this was it. We booked for 19.45 on Thursday and it was just as well as it was very busy. A warm welcome and excellent local ale was followed by a well prepared and presented from an interesting menu with variety and some local twists. Service was a little patchy... More

We came here for Sunday lunch ( which it serves till 17:00) all the tables did have a reserved sign on them but we asked if they could fit is in which they did. We had a two course meal of £15 dogs were welcome which is nice to see. Well worth a try!

Nice looking pub but every member of our group of 15 who ordered a drink was met with the same sour faced and unfriendly guy behind the bar.

Targeting diners rather than smelly walkers with dogs, although they do accept dogs. Nice food. Maybe a little expensive for what it was. Jennings beers not my favorite brewery but well kept.

I'm sure the Horse & Farrier restaurant deserves all the good reviews however I recently dropped in just for a pint as it is stilled described as a 'traditional inn'. Unfortunately I found all the tables marked as reserved even though it was only 5pm and there was no one sitting at them!! I asked at the bar but was... More

Each of us had a different meal ( vegetarian lasagne, lamb, pork, chicken) and we were all impressed with its tastiness and presentation. The lamb Melted in... More
