We were meeting friends all staying up the road. Nice old pub building with all the signs of being well kept. A menu in keeping with the place , my steak was fine as were the several pints of the well kept real ale. Service was polite and efficient keeping pace with the demand - the place was full when we were there.
And they have kept a history for the pub and the landlords going back centruries.So a well kept place putting together a well rounded offering. Keeping up the tradtion. And well worth the detour caused by the roadworks! So do keep it up please.

We visit this pub every year at christmas, it is a cosy, old, quaint pub. The main food is lovely but the sides dishes of croquet potatoes and frozen chips let it down, some nice homecooked chips is what it needs and nice new potatoes or mash. The toilets need a good decorate and new carpet, very old and cold. I have never found the staff to be rude though.

Having visited Haddon Hall and disappointed not to have gotten into the restaurant there, we found this gem of a country pub. We were late for lunch (they stop at 2pm), but we were shown a table and it was no bother to serve us. We had a good hearty soup followed by an excellent Roast Turkey & Roast Beef lunch. The meal was piping hot (as were the plates, which is rare these days) well presented and VERY tasty. The owner was extremly friendly and although we were late in there was no urgency to get us out of the pub. A very attractive friendly country pub with excellent service throughout, and worth a visit.

I have reviewed The Eyre Arms before (very favourably) about a year ago, so I'll keep it brief this time.
Yet again, excellent, friendly, relaxing and welcoming. Food great. Beer great. No pretension. A real tonic from the hassle of a working week.
Makes me happy going there.
