The best pub fish and chips I have ever had!! Always made to feel welcome by staff and regulars! Especially by the landlord Kerry (and Kev), a fantastic local pub with superb fish and chip Friday's

We were so lucky to decide to go The Great Western which is two steps from the station (which seems to have free parking as well). Great... More

Very basic food menu but average price!!! Food is OK but not much to choose from and the Sunday roast is a little plain and boring!! Not bad for a small back street pub!!!

Dear Customer Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review. I am however, disappointed that you rated us as poor. . I' m sorry that you found our Sunday Dinner 'plain and boring' - I believe that our dinner is competitively priced and with a choice of three meats and always four vegetables served along with Yorkshire puddings...

Situated just around the corner from Pen Mill station, this friendly backstreet pub serves far better than average pub food. The beers and cider are excellent and it's great to see the establishment back on its feet after some months of closure. It's well worth a visit, especially on a sunny day as the front terrace gets the sun all... More
