This pub serves basic, good pub food. We were surprised to have freshly made delicious fish pies served to us, because we had expected defrosted frozen ones. The fisherman's Rest is deservedly popular for good honest food.

Generous portions of Beef and Pork for under a tenner, plenty of veg, add friendly staff, what more do you need. Extra bonus its only 100 yards from where we are staying. . Only thing that could improve it, "rare" roast Beef!!!.

Attentive and helpful staff. Lovely home cooked food. Reasonably priced and very good value for money. The decor is a bit dated but can be ignored.
