“Proper grub!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Stayed at primrose valley for the week with 2 members of family who had previously been to this pub and were keen to take me. We went on the Monday and ordered hunters chicken, fish and chips and gammon and chips with sides of onion rings and mushrooms. I am a bit of a food snob but I honestly cannot fault any of the meal. Onion rings are massive and cooked to perfection, hunters chicken was without a doubt better than other eateries I have been to, Gammon and chips and the fish and chips went down a treat with my family too. I spoke to Terry the bar man and he is such a lovely warm character and is definitely a face you'll remember!! 'Health, wealth and happiness'- lovely to be greeted by this! We then went back on the Thursday and had different meals and I had the rump steak and wasn't expecting it to be as delicious but yes I was highly delighted and enjoyed yet anothed perfect meal. we managed to have puddings as it was our last night and they were gorgeous too. (Sorry for the long review but I have never eaten food of this quality before and it will be hard to beat) all the way from Exeter, I would happily return in the future when visiting family. Thank you for your great service!!

We stayed here for one night before Easter as we were going to Filey and fancied somewhere out of town.
Our room was small and the en suite shower equally cramped but at least they were clean and we slept well mostly due to the beautifully cooked and massive evening meal all washed down with some nice beer and a very reasonable bottle of wine.
Terry, who I believe looks after the front of house, was interesting to talk to and he did his best to make us welcome.
The place did lack atmosphere but we were there out of season and the bar/restaurant was quiet and I also suspect that we were the only residents that particular night.
The outside appearance is not inspiring but go inside and enjoy the brilliant food.

Hi there YorkshireTraveller, thanks for taking the time to post a review. Well you certainly live up to your name, you must have been 'travelling' because you visited us at Easter and haven't posted until October!!
Anyway, really pleased you enjoyed your time with us, if your room wasn't as large as you would expect you should have asked to be moved to another one, we always aim to please.
Thanks again and hope to see you again, maybe this time in Season.
Cheers, from all the staff

My son and daughter in law went to this pub last week and came home, giving us rave reviews, so this weekend, whilst at our caravan in the area, we gave it a try. Food was fabulous, and huge portions!! I couldn't finish it but what I did eat was delicious - next time I go, I shall starve all day first! The staff are lovely, very friendly and helpful - put me at a table where I didn't have to walk too far to doors etc because they noticed I was using a walking stick. Service was really fast, especially as food is cooked fresh to order. A really great find and we shall be making it our local when we are at the caravan now!

Hello TrishaHolderFisher, many thanks for your great review. We are really pleased you enjoyed your time with us and you found the staff attentive and helpful.
So glad you enjoyed our food as well, here's a little tip, if you can't finish your plate ask to take it home in a doggy bag, perfect for a midnight snack!!
Thanks again and hope to see you soon.

We found this to be a very friendly, clean and very comfortable little pub. Meals were delicious! If we return to England would love to stay there again. Terry and staff were very friendly and helpful.
