Evening meal here. Party of 12, greeted nicely upon arrival. Menu has a great choice. As soon as you walk in you can smell home cooked food. Well priced and not one of our table complained at a single thing. Will definitely be coming here again. Well done the davenport arms for nailing it on the head!!

Been to the Davenport many times now and never been disappointed. If you're looking for a nice atmosphere, friendly service and yummy non-chain pub food, then I highly recommend this place. You can choose to eat in either the bar side or restaurant or just have a pint at bar. Have enjoyed the gammon, homemade burgers, fish and chips and... More

We were celebrating my Mother's 100th birthday and when looking for somewhere for Sunday lunch, the staff were really helpful in accommodating our arrangements. There is also a play area and as we had a 4 and 2 year old in the party, this was a plus point. We were each able to choose from the menu rather than all... More

Hi Thank you for your review, so pleased you enjoyed your visit and that the staff were so attentive to you. I am sorry to learn that although we had no adverse feedback from you on the day, you say that your gammon was over done and that we charged you for toppings on the gammon. The gammon is served...

Daily Chefs Specials and Home made desserts. Well known for our Famous Fish and chips and Giant Rack of succulent Ribs!
Large garden with patio, decking and summer house.
