“Nicely updated pub with good food and tasty beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We recently had a very good meal here, as we were stopping at a hotel in the area.
This pub had been recommended to us by a local, and they were right.
Decent sized car park, nice updated decor in the pub.
The two ladies who served us were both friendly and helpful.
The beer was well kept and more-ish.
We had starters and a main, all food was well prepared and quick to arrive.
It was also decently priced.
If this was my local I would be there all the time!

“Little Gem,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Arrange a visit to an adjacent pub, which was nice, lovely cosy open fire. We decided to have a walk, and luckily found the Houston Inn, very friendly and could not fault the meal.
Good service. It was also a luck break , because there was a local band on.
a great night. worth a visit again

“Typically good pub grub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

This pub/restaurant has been going through various changes over the past two years. It went from typical pub grub, through Italian, Indian and is now back to typical village menu.
It can very good, or it can be a bit average. It is seldom poor.
Nice atmosphere in the bar and the staff are always pleasant and efficient.
It is beginning to settle down since its last change of direction and is now, I believe, better than average.
This bar/restaurant is local to me and my wife and I frequent it. so it can't be rubbish.
