Its partly the setting, almost hidden in the trees but on the Greensand Way, partly the beers, partly the authentically old interior, partly the food but mostly the feeling that you are sitting somewhere away from it all if you get an outside table. There's...More

We booked a table at the skim for a Friday night meal.Unfortunately the whole evening was ruined by a large crowd of young children. The food was average and a cheap bottle of wine expensive. Thankfully as locals we will use another pub nearby.

The Skim does amazing roast dinners. Bring your appetite because they are huge! Booking is essential on a Sunday and don't plan anything for afterwards because you'll be too stuffed to move! I especially love that they are nice and generous with the quantity of...More

No. Skimmington Castle is quite tight on space, it has four rooms if your children are small and prone to running about this is not the place for you. Some of the rooms are contectected by a steep flight of stairs... More
