“A little find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This used to be an old-fashioned pub serving typical pub food but was taken over in December. It now boasts a French Bistro menu as well as the pub menu which probably suits many couples. We went there last Saturday and shared a starter of prawns and chorizo, followed for me by cassoulet with slow-roasted duck. It was excellent. My husband is more conservative so chose steak and chips from the pub menu - it sounds ordinary but it was far better than that. With triple cooked chips and lovely garnishes, he was very complimentary. Neither of us wanted a large pudding so we opted to share a vanilla ice cream but, instead of the usual three scoops in a bowl, the chef made the ice cream into a desert of its own with fruit and sauce. When the decor is finished (they have extensive plans as explained by the French chef) this will be a lovely bistro with superb views which people will want to travel to. Good luck!

“1st visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Having seen good reviews on this Inn, we decided it was worth a visit.
We were given a warm welcome by the Bar Staff who immediately took our drinks order. Soon after, she returned to take our food order after explaining the different parts of the menu.
I ordered a Gammon with fried egg, mushy peas, side salad & triple cooked chips a speciality of theirs. My partner ordered Battered Cod with triple cooked chips & mushy peas.
The meals were very enjoyable & good value. I really must recommend a cask Ale they serve called "Doombar" ... an excellent pint.

“Looking forward to returning again soon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

It was our first visit to The Golden Mile for some years and we were delighted to enjoy some incredibly fresh and interesting food and some real ales catching up with good friends. Nothing seemed like too much trouble for the staff and the owners who were very welcoming, keen to provide excellent service and happy to chat and offer us a warm refuge well past closing time when our taxi was delayed. We learnt a lot about Cyril's passion for home cooked food and his ambitions for this lovely old pub. He deserves our support and we highly recommend you give it a try.

“Looks Can Be Deceptive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Ate here last friday night to celebrate a friends birthday knowing that there are new owners on the block. The pub is dated and hopefully in time this will be renovated but dont let that put you off. Unfortunatetly the french menu was a little too flamboyant for my taste so I opted to eat off the pub menu and OMG the tripple cooked chips are to die for - just the thought of them is making me salivate right now. And the chicken breast - actually tasted of chicken which was great. There is a little french bistro to the side of the pub which looks lovely if you want something a little more special and is perfect for couples. I cant wait to see how the pub develops as the food is fab :-)
