“Good grub, real ale.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Good pub food in a lovely old building. Kids also liked the food and they were helpful about kids portions of most meals.
The hotel looked very nice too.
We were staying in the holiday home next door (Playden forge) which was unfortunately awful so we had most dinners in the pub.

“Very good food”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We loved the food and the staff were very friendly. It's a charming little restaurant with a cozy bar at the front. Reasonably priced menu and a decent seafood selection.
