We tried to have a drink in a nearby hotel, but there were no visible life there. We started looking nearby and accidentally found this quaint pub. What a surprise! Beautiful inside and even more beautiful outside. We sat outside, weather helped, we had our drinks and had a sharing nibble ordered. I cannot wait to get back there. Pleasant... More

Recommended by our B&B, the Waterloo served us a good evening meal - excellent starters and very acceptable mains. Service excellent - one slight problem was dealt with quickly, efficiently and resulted in a discount to our bill which was both unrequested and unexpected. Staff exceptionally helpful while unobtrusive throughout. Recommended. Book if possible as very popular.

When I go to a pub I tend to be quite conservative , so if I have a pint of good ale and a good pie in reasonable surroundings I'm happy. The interior is what you might expect of a traditional old pub, but I'm afraid the beef and ale pie was rather stodgy and covered with a very strong... More

My wife and I have been staying at a hotel not far away from this pub where the staff had recommended taking a short walk to the pub in the evening. When we arrived it was very busy but a young member of staff ran instantly to clear us a table to sit at, brought us menus, showed us some... More

We had a family meal here recently and had a great experience. We were a large party - around 12 adults and 7 children - we called in the morning and the staff were very friendly and happy to accommodate us. Even though we arrived a little later than planned this was no problem and we were looked after very... More

After reading such fantastic reviews on here, my wife and I went for late lunch on the 8th September, we were greeted by the barmaid who persisted to call me 'Darling' and 'Honey' which I found very rude and patronising. We were given our drinks with a sour 'bored' look so we decided to sit in the garden. We were... More
