Since Marie & Ashley took over, the pub has seen a much appreciated change for the better! The atmosphere is good, the food has certainly improved over the last few months and all in all, a lovely pub in a lovely village. Keep up the good work...

Lovely tasty meal at Loders Arms, I had the duck breast with cherry sauce and served on a bed of roast sweet potato, delicious. My husband had the lamb on Roast Veg, also delicious, had food envy, but mine was so good too. Will be visiting again soon, most likely for Sunday lunch. Keep up the good cooking.
