Visited as a result of the Daily telegraph and tripadvisor. It was very pleasing that the opinions and reviews were all accurate! We went as a family of grandparents, parents and grandaughter at lunchtime Saturday 23 Feb. The welcome was first class and pens, crayons and drawing pad were offered immediately for the young one, 14 months. We were seated very comfortably with everyhing at hand and soon ordered our drinks and meal. Beer choices were good and so was the food. We were only having a quick lunch and so ham, cheese, cajun chicken, chicken goujons and hot beef rolls were the order of the day. They were all excellent and arrived very quickly with fantastic home made chips. All our plates were emptied and no complaints! We look forward to going again for an evening meal.

As soon as I stepped through the door the landlord took the mickey out of me. He's very good at weighing up his patrons.
Lovely place and excellent food. Very old building and you have to mind your head on the way to the bedrooms. Although the place is old, the rooms are very nice with modern facilities.

Stumbling on the Staff of Life by accident we were really impressed with what they served up. The food was well-cooked, served beautifully by friendly staff and was much enjoyed by us. The interior is quirky and pleasant and we will definitely be stumbling upon the Staff of Life again soon, hopefully for a longer stay! The chocolate brownie and ice cream was to die for!!!

We booked for a meal for 19 over New Year and although we missed the turn for car park arrived on Sat night to find a packed restaurant with great atmosphere and even better food!

The rack of ribs was more than a match for a big appetite and even the vegetarian option was described as really good.

A traditional British pub with flag stone floor serving excellent food and real ale all served in a warm and cosy environment.
Our first visit - but certainly won't be our last. Well done all at the Staff of life - keep up the good work.
