Went for a brilliant Sunday lunch, food and staff superb will definitely be going back, also went in on Friday afternoon, and the lady opened the kitchen especially for us !!! Now there aren't many pubs will do that for you, well worth a visit

Were glad to find this pub open on a Sunday evening as several others we tried were closed (in fact we rang ahead and the propriortor said he would keep the kitchen open for us). Quiet and very welcoming in a beautiful location, varied menu. Meals generally good - though sweet & sour chicken rather dry. Very reasonably priced.

The food here is excellent and has to be the best value for money in the area. We went for a steak on Thursday night (steak night) and could not believe that it was only £10 for a Sirloin steak with the best home cooked chips, peas, onions and mushrooms etc. There is an extensive menu with all sorts of...

First class proper food. Good prices we've had lamb shank and steaks there and there is always a good pint of real ale on there as well. Highly recommended.

Been to the Herbert Arms twice recently. Been for Sunday lunch and steak night on a Thursday. Both times we were welcomed by very friendly staff and they couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Sunday lunch is very nice with a choice of pork or beef or both ! Good selection of veg and dessert for 10.00. Steak night choice... More

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
