Stopped for a late lunch and chose from standard menu. The PB&C was one of the best from local bakery if you like a pie try this one. Beer and prices pretty standard staff obviously liked their job.

Had drinks & lunch here when spending the weekend in the village. The food was typical pub grub, but really good. The staff are really friendly & made us so welcome.
The atmosphere was super, seeing all the elderly ladies, couples & families pop in for a drink or a meal after shopping was lovely, at one point folk were being turned away as there were no seats left.
Will be back the next time we visit the area.

Comfortable. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Great pint(s)!! We saw the food as it came out of the kitchen - it looked and smelled great. It is right off the green so is easy access.

Pub was busy as world cup was on - but we were served promptly & received friendly service. Food was good value and well prepared. Great steaks and fish & chips. Will be back!

We visited The Balmoral a couple of weeks ago and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. Fish and chips was the best we have had for ages. Lovely fresh fish and crispy batter. Will be back.
