This is a lovely traditional pub, with great beer from the micro brewery and beyond. The food is much more than pub standard and the staff in the restaurant are so attentive and helpful. We would definitely recommend a trip out to Elford

Hi there we charge £13.95 for 2 courses or £16.95 for 3! I recommend booking to avoid disappointment. We serve 1-3.30 today.

Yes that's fine. We don't have any problems with dogs, but unfortunately we don't allow them in the restaurant area, though we have a lovely cosy private room that if it's not already booked we can sit you at.
