“Stunning setting”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

This place is simply beautiful. A welcome rest at the centre of a number of walks, the Grampus is a lovely old inn with a secluded cottage-style garden. The simple pub menu is well presented and reasonably priced and the beers are always good.

It can get very busy here. Make sure you're not in a hurry as even during quiet times, the service operates at a gentle and relaxed pace, never flustered -and why not?

“Overpriced ploughmans..very poor quality!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

After a long walk, stopped in pub garden for lunch.
Ordered ploughmans. 2 very small slices of bread, a smear of 'homemade' chutney ( half a teaspoon) and tasteless cheese. Cost £7.50 !!
I'd have been embarrassed to serve this...and at that price!

“Tasteless food and dirty”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Visited this pub for second time after six years. It has gone downhill. Toilet was filthy and window ledges with dead flies on. Staff very friendly but the food portions were small and home cooked dishes tasteless. A real shame as could be so lovely.
