We went to the Hardwick Arms for Sunday lunch with a groupon voucher which entitled 4 of us for a Sunday main meal for £16 (for all of us). Staff were very welcoming and friendly and the meal was exceptional. We would certainly pay the full price for the meal. We would definately recommend this pub to friends and family.

Dined here as a party of 6 and wasn't disappointed at all Lovely fresh cooked food, very tasty and generous portions. We even saved room for desserts which were also very nice. Booking is highly recommended otherwise you may have a long wait. A great little place!!

Went on a Groupon deal, so to be honest wasn't expecting a lot. But both roasts we ordered were lovely. Loads of veg, lovely meat and a favourite with me...extra gravy!! No complaints at all, surrounding pleasant and staff helpful.
