We called into the robin hood in rainow and were made to feel very welcome even with our dog. The food was gorgeous. Apparently the usual chef was off but if the stand in chef was anything to go by the full time chef has serious competition. The portions were huge and home cooked and really tasty, we went for...

Came for some food and a couple of drinks after work with colleagues. Could not fault the location or the appearance of the pub, however the food was very basic and tasted like it was from Iceland frozen foods. Outdoor seating area is lovely, would definitely recommend going for a drink there. Decent selection of cask ales which is always... More

Unfortunately, the room where we stayed was small, the double bed was cramped, the staircase to get to the room on the upper floor was narrow and steep. On arrival, even though the booking confirmation listed full English breakfast as included in the tariff, the proprietor told me that he usually only does a Continental breakfast on Monday mornings. However,... More

Visited during a walk out with friends. My wife and I had the steak and ale pie and it was lovely. Portion size was very generous too. Our friends had the oatcakes and they were very complimentary about them. Will definitely be visiting again soon.

Arrived 1230 Saturday on Easter Weekend & it looked like everyone had just got up. We were looking for shelter after a cold & blustery walk. The place was cold & fairly unwelcoming - the fire wasn't even lit. We left the place feeling colder than when we arrived! We have visited & enjoyed the pub for it's homeliness, whilst... More

Went to this Pub last week for the first time as its now our new local, the welcome by the owners and staff couldn't have been more friendly. It was a cold wet midweek evening and the log fire inside was very much a plus. We had an evening meal there off the main menu, which was homecooked and tasted... More
