Booked a little 1 nighter at the Bridge Inn, as Ma & Pa were staying nearby, we've eaten there before and knew it was good. Camped in the field next to the pub, fine by us. Had a lush walk along The Cats Back (Black Hill) to Hay Bluff and back for a couple of pints, quick shower (all clean & tidy) & dinner booked for 8.30, with the Olds. The food is fantiastic, 1 ribeye, 1 hake, 1 chicken, 1 salmon, all delicious, plentiful, cooked to perfection. Not really enough room for pud, but we forced a couple down anyway. Great wine....not overpriced, loads of ales etc. Lovely staff that just seemed pleased that we were enjoying ourselves. And they were flat out busy.
Next day had a bit of eggs'n toast with a coffee. Later booked in for what must be one of the best Sunday Lunches in the UK (and we work our way around the South West trying them out).
Slow cooked meat, Pork Belly, Blade of Beef, Rump of Lamb, so much veg you can't eat it all, but also a wicked cheesy/potato croquette, yorkshires to die for and not too much spud, the gravy is like the best pie filling juice you ever had. Again, brilliant. Sadly we then had to leave. The place is a little chaotic, and haphazard, but in a good way. Embrace it, enjoy yourself and don't be too uptight. it's a pub in the middle of nowhere that is always full of happy contented full up faces. Excellent. can't wait for my next trip.
