I had the good fortune to grow up in Shropshire in the late 70's and early 80's. It was a time of freedom, simplicity and s feeling that's life was good. One area that didn't quite match these feelings was the "pub life" and more explicitly the food in English pubs. Pubs tended to be somewhat tired and borderline line... More

We tried this pub on an off chance on Friday evening. Although the dining room was nicely laid out it was empty early in the evening so Martin lit the wood burner in the bar and we ate in there. A few locals provided the proper pub atmosphere. Julie fed us well with Lebanese Curry and Rib Eye Steak. The... More

We were travelling through on the way to North Wales and just pulled in on the off chance. This is an old fashioned pub, no fuss, no glamour but very friendly. The menu was very simple and offered very reasonably priced traditional pub "bar meal' style.. scampi, steak, etc.. We both chose a small scampi and chips, it was huge!... More

There were 4 of us in the group and ate here on a Saturday night were surprised to find no diners. Dining room was cosy with a lovely wood burner and the menu was of a good variation with a good choice for vegetarians or meat eaters! All very reasonably priced and tasted delicious. We had sirloin steak for £12.95... More

We arrived in the area on a Sunday evening with no food for our self-catering cottage, and were afraid we would not get served so late. However the very kind landlady opened up the kitchen specially for us. Pretty standard pub fare, but we were very glad to have it. So often we have found places where staff were almost... More

We had quick stop at the Herbert Arms as we were passing through on our way to North Wales on a Friday lunchtime. The staff were very friendly and the food quality and service were very good. They provided a high chair for our lad and his meal was also very good. The pub was a little quiet, with nobody... More

Tried this at short notice and personally was disappointed. Should have taken more notice of one of the reviews!!!!! Who serves risotto on a bed of chips???? This plate arrived piled high, so many chips, not so much risotto, although what there was had lots of flavour. Please serve risotto either without chips or with them as a side dish... More

Friendly pub with good beer and food at very reasonable prices. Nice staff and a pleasant dining room. The fish and chips were excellent, and provided proof that the chef is a Yorkshire lass!
