Found this late on a Sunday afternoon when we were all starving. Phoned up for a late booking and they even said they would save us some of the Sunday carvery. Couldn't have been more accommodating and helped loads with the 3 kids with their food and some colouring books. Good Ales, great food, lovely ambience. What more could you... More

We ate there for the two nights when we stayed at the Hillcrest House bed and breakfast.The food was very good and the staff gave you a warm welcome when you arrived.We had the fish and chips the first night and the mixed grill the second night,both were excellent and very good portions.Would defiantly recommend.

Friendly staff, amazing food we ate here 3 nights and every meal was home cooked and delicious. It had the added bonus of a lovely play area which kept the little one amused. Highly recommend.

Home made chips and home made puddings too. The place was packed even on a rainy Thursday lunchtime. And a bonus for dog lovers, dogs... More

Great little pub, we were informed about this place by the Rangers at Ilam Hall campsite. Lovely food, great service, even do small portions at a reasonable price of your not too hungry.
