Visited whilst on holiday in the area, a friendly pub with a good menu. Pub classics such as pies and curry, plus specials which such as Kung Po Pork which was delicious. They were happily able to serve a veggie green thai curry (menu was advertising chicken option). It happened to be pub quiz night so we stayed for that... More

Always warm and inviting with an excellent menu. The food is of a great quality and they never disappoint. When you want a night out and you do not want to risk it being bad - you go here.

We visited the Milbank Arms during a one night stay nearby. We chose it due to the positive reviews on here and were not disappointed! The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere was relaxed and the food was delicious! We genuinely thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and my husband was a huge fan of the Blacksheep on tap.... More

We arrived with our two children (1 and 7) after a trashing day in the cold and we were instantly warmed by the lovely staff and homely, comfortable pub! There was so much choice on the menu and I wanted it all! Even the fussiest eater would find something on this luscious menu. The kids had fruit to start followed... More

This place is just the best. It boasts a cosy fire in the colder months. Really friendly staff, and the food is out of this world. Food is fresh local cooked food. We keep going back again and again and can't recommend it enough.

Excellent food, good service and good choice menu. We went on a Thursday evening and although it was a quiz night we were served with no bother at all. We stayed and did the quiz as well. We didn't win though.
