We stopped here on spec as the outside view was spectacular. There are a good number of outside tables and chairs with umbrellas ( for rain or sun protection). Amazing menu where you are stuck to decide as you want everything. How often can you say that? Eventually opted for toasted bun with bbq pulled pork with coleslaw and crispy... More

We stopped off here for dinner after having been out walking during the afternoon. Its a lovely country pub nestled amongst some beautiful scenery. There seems to be a good mix of locals and tourists that visit it. The food we ordered (pie of the day, and a summer salad) was good pub food, and it came promptly.

Awesome place to stop by for lunch. Stunning view from the outside tables. Great little walks close by to work up an appetite. I recommend the ribs on the menu. Staff are polite - we didnt stay over just ate and drank.

We stayed in Lyth Cottage which has three levels - the kitchen and dining area on the first level, the lounge on the second and the bedroom on the third. The bathroom is on the same level as the bedroom and is wonderfully clean and well equipped with bath, hand and rain shower. The water pressure is good and the... More

Sunday afternoon meal with family - took two hours to serve two courses . My wife and I both had pheasant - served still part raw - when complained just got a shrug from the staff as an unmet promise to investigate with the chef. Was not asked on paying bill how we found the meal- would have given a... More

Stopped in the Strawberry Bank Suite for two nights and the quality of the suite was very high. Lovely kitchen area as soon as you walk in, with everything you could possibly need for a short stay, lots of utensils, plates, pans, washing up liquid etc. The bedroom part of the room was also lovely, great four poster bed with...

Called in for a drink and returned for lunch. Parking is somewhat hidden but once located is fine. Wonderful views over the valley. Bar is small and congested. However, the food and beer very good indeed and well worth the wait.

Dropped in for a quick bite on a Sunday lunchtime - mistake! Difficult parking, crowded pub, people and cyclists spilling into the awkward road junction. Best bits:- quick efficient bar service and helpful staff, clean toilets. Simple sandwich though cost over £5.
