Quite uninviting for passing visitors but seemingly loved by the locals. Just stopped for hot drinks but they weren’t great- just handed over in a mug. Might be nicer for dinner but not great for a quick coffee stop.

Something for everyone. Fish & chips - beef rendang. A restaurant that caters for all taste, traditional English or something with zing. Lovely staff, restaurant or bar snacks. There is something for everyone. If you’ve got an early start, go for breakfast!!

We have started coming to The Blean Tavern regularly. The food is a combination of traditional British and a touch of Eastern magic. Goats cheese, pate, chicken satay are just a few of the starters, and the selection of main courses is amazing. The fish...More

Service is friendly and the food is astonishingly good . Whilst it was not a cheap meal the quality of the cooking was in my view exceptional. We have also had two breakfasts there recently and here to it is one of the best around
