Based on a few visits, would categorise "the Kicker" as a friendly local traditional pub. Food limited, but baps are fine. Not particularly small child friendly (except in summer) which I'm ok with! Owners and most staff v.good, though when someone else is managing can...More

Stopped off for lunch on our trip from Lincolnshire to a week's holiday in Devon - a really good experience - very friendly staff, excellent value soup (proper home-made!) & sausage/onion roll delivered very promptly. Pity it's so far from home!

We popped in on the hunt for some good but they only serve food from 12 - 2.30 so we stayed and had a drink instead. A very old quaint pub but it was quite busy. A good range of ciders and some real ales...More

Old pub, lots of character, Beer great, food passable, however, the over-riding memory was the constant foul language from a group of middle-aged men clustered round a table nearby. Were they locals? It will prevent us making a return visit.
