The Sloop reopened this summer after a lengthy closure and it's a welcome return! The landlord, Gary, keeps a range of ales. lagers and ciders without a Stella, Carlsberg or any other big brand in sight. That means you get a tasty beverage every time and not the bland brand. The ales change regularly but there is always an interesting... More

I visited today with my elderly mum who is not very mobile. We were welcomed into the pub garden and the landlady even brought her a 'proper' chair. It is easy access along a flat path from the carpark (note, if you have children or less mobile adults you are better off using the car park on the same side... More

Had a fantastic Roast Beef cooked just the way I like it.... Melt in the mouth. The veg were all cooked firm and crunchy and presented hot. My wife was not very hungry and settled for a burger she was impressed with the portion and loved the chips. Well done Chef we will be back!!!

The pub has been refurbished, the garden is inviting and there is plenty of parking. Beers, lagers and a cider are not the run of the mill stuff. I enjoyed braised ox cheek with bone marrow mash & leeks which sound like a winter's meal but was very satisfying, my partner had the fish and chips with pea puree which... More

We were camping in wowo, and have been to this pub before it was refurbished. It is a lovely half hour walk through fields and woods to this pub which caters for casual diners and also now has a ''posh'' section for the more serious foodies! Having kids and dogs we sat outside as it was sunny, but you are... More

This charming pub has been renovated and reopened with a more upmarket menu. We have eaten here several times, both lunch and dinner, and the food is excellent . The decor is bright, and the owners are welcoming. There is a good choice of beer on tap, and a good choice of wines. The food is delicious - and although... More

Have not visited the Sloop since new owners took over. Was very pleasantly surprised. Booked Sunday Lunch for four adults and a child. Two ordered roast beef which was succulent, another had pork belly which was crisp and enjoyable and the fourth had hake again it was well presented. Congratulations to the Chef! Children could select from a separate menu.... More

After a major revamp and a new kitchen it is good to see The Sloop back in action. Great place on a sunny day with a large and attractive garden well served with seating. We only had a light lunch which was satisfactory without being outstanding with something of an obsession with ciabatta bread not only for all the sandwiches... More
