I visited the Whittington Arms for lunch yesterday with three others. Food, drinks, surroundings and service were all most enjoyable. Our experience was certainly quite different from some of the lower ratings and adverse comments given by others. We'll certainly return.

Description
Sensitively restored and brimming with countryside charm, The Whittington Arms offers British pub hospitality. Mixing classic recipes and modern dishes, the menu is dictated by the seasons, with daily-changing specials also on offer. The bar is amply stocked with fine wines and smooth cask ales, and chunky wood furnishings and quirky décor make for a homely, relaxed ambience in the dining room. A menu just for kids offers fun yet nutritious choice for younger diners.
