This is the best Sunday roast I've ever eaten, including our own home cooked roasts! Staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming, the pub feels like a pub and has so much charm and character with a beautiful log fire roaring away in the bar. Can't wait to come back for my Birthday!

We had dinner here on New Years Eve. The pub was extremely busy but the service and the food was still great. I recommend the home roasted ribs!

We stayed at Frogapits last year & again this year for xmas. Although it's only less than a minutes walk downhill to the near pub, it is well worth the trek up the steepish hill to the Napoleon. The staff & locals are all friendly & the food never lets you down. If you go on a Tuesday night you... More

We booked the Nap for our first ever Christmas dinner away from home and we were not disappointed. The courses were all home made, well prepared and served with a big smile. Nothing was to much bother and the staff catered to all our needs. Christmas Day lunch at the Nap is fun, relaxed, brilliantly cooked and excellent value for... More

We visited 'The Nap' last Friday evening. It was a cold, dark winter evening but it was lovely and warm inside and we quickly gravitated towards the cosy, roaring open fire. Bliss! One of us opted for the pork served with a mustard sauce and mash, the other had scampi. Both were delicious and served piping hot on equally hot... More
