There are pubs that promote themselves as gastro pubs where you get fussy food at high prices. Then there are pubs that sell good quality basic pub grub at sensible prices. The Wrey Arms is the latter. Add to that the great landlady, lovely staff,...More

Excellent meal. Good service. Cottage pie was very tasty. Veg cooked just right. I should have asked for extra gravy but no complaints about anything. The toilets are also well kept and clean. Really hoping that this pub finally gets the trade they deserve.
