From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome, really nice pub inside. For the first time I can remember there was liver and bacon on the menu, it was first class, just like my mum used to make for me as a child. I...would highly recommend this pub everything about it was fantastic.More

We booked here while organising our christmas family break at Delemere forest holidays. For christmas eve we booked a table for 8 of us. The pub looked lovely outside amd very festive and welcoming inside. We had excellent service amd the food was lovely. Some...of us struggled to finish our mains as the starter was very filling. Steaks great as was the pies and fish amd chips. Lovely evening thanks again.More

Fantastic menu and so hard to choose from such a wide variety of sumptuous food. We had the festive menu and could only manage 2 courses. The turkey dinner was absolutely amazing, just wow!! The service was so helpful and friendly; thank you so much...Lily and Janey for making our visit that bit more special. Be back soon guys 😉More

Oh dear Hamilton and Brian, I don't think attacking people's opinion is what Tripadviser is about. Pubs/restaurants in 'walking' areas such as this get valuable business from people out waling in the forest with their dogs.
