The welcome was very friendly & polite and although a bit quiet the food was very good & the staff very attentive. A very unique menu but with all the old favourites as well. We went for the Asian selections & found the food full of flavour.

Since my last visit I am pleased to report that the pub menu has evolved (or regressed depending on your point of view), and there is now a more traditional pub menu found on the blackboard in the bar. So now, along with traditional Sunday roasts (which is only available on Sundays....obviously), there are steaks, burgers, scotch eggs, pies, chicken... More

My wife and I went for an evening meal at the Purefoy Arms on a Thursday evening in February. DETAIL (skip down to summary if that's all you're after): Service: Both on the phone and in person the service was first class. We were made to feel welcome and the gentlemen who served us knew his stuff about both the... More

Had a meal last week for a family members retirement and we were looked after especially well. Honesty is the best policy!....so I'll give you the warts and all of how I found the pub. Firstly the pub paid on a lovely table in the back of the restaurant - a nice touch, very appreciated. The welcome was super friendly... More

We haven't been since the change of ownership. The place was empty on a Saturday lunchtime. A mixed menu of traditional and Asian as some have mentioned. We decided to go the Asian route as if they are offering that style of food it must be good. Sadly no. Tempura was very oily, katsu ok, ramen was very much lacking... More

My girlfriend, friends and family have been going here since October 2016. The staff who are still new in the pub are excellent, have a great eye for detail and are generally all you could ask for from publicans. The food is to a really high standard (their Sunday lunches are incredible) and they have some really original and unique... More

It's nearly a year since I last visited. The food and ale was still excellent and the kids had fun in the garden again. A minor hiccough on the delivery of the kids food due to a member of staff being off unexpectedly so they were rushed off their feet, but they made up for it big time even though... More
