“Delightful meal but now shut”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed a delightful meal in the excellent new surroundings. Good food and good wine list at reasonable prices. Other locals were in that night - 18th October - which spoke for itself.

Have to stop there as see my final note:

Pity that the pub and restaurant has now closed - hope its only for a short while ....

“No surprise it's closed!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

Oh dear what a shame! We visited last week and yes we were the only 4 in the restaurant but the food was lovely!! I was about to title my review "should be busier!!) but have just read a previous review announcing the closure!!! We only found this pub a few weeks ago after recommendation and the manager told us it was a hidden gem!!! Oh dear!!! He must have known he was on his way to closing but was being optimistic! The waitress's are lovely and whilst my only criticism was the menus was limited and overpriced ( pie and mash £14.95!!!! Veg was extra!! Making it about £18!!! Maybe this was one if the reasons it wasn't making money. Let's hope someone comes up with a plan to reopen it as we need more good country pubs!!

“Regrettably Closed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

Closed with large fence around the pub.

Always was a lovely setting in the summer, but lost its charm during the renovations. Turned into just a large restaurant, with nowhere for people to just have a quiet drink.

If you are looking for somewhere good nearby, try the Red Lion at Newborough (about 2 miles down the road)

“Now closed (as of 27th October)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2014

The Meynell Ingram is now closed. There is a six foot high fence around it and signs warning of CCTV. Sign on fence says 'this establishment is now closed' - no hint of why or a re opening date. Contact via an e mail address.

My guess would be that the owners got fed up pouring money into the place.

Ate there last week and food was fine, but place wasn't busy. So lets wait to see the next chapter in this saga! What we really want is a return to a proper country pub....
