Great service. Had fun watching the locals play skittles. Clean but very close to the busy road. Be careful when you exit!

We called into this family run pub on the off chance they could accommodate our family- 4 adults and 4 children on Easter Monday. We can't fault the friendly staff or service. Our food was lovely. Highly recommended.

The service was courteous, engaging and warm. The specials board was full of a wide variety of tasty treats and the ala carte full of fine fare. We decided... More

The veggie lasagne was tasty, the sea bass at £10 was good value, but the vegetables were bland and disappointing. Average pub grub.

Having known the Clockhouse before the fire my partner and I revisited it. We are sorry to say that the redecoration of this lovely house is bland to say the least... what a missed opportunity to make something spectacular... but no, magnolia and pine abound. Such a shame..

Hi Jo, Sorry the new look was not to your liking, we don't have any pine though, the panelling on the wall is over 300 years old, original before the fire and so pleased it was salvageable and reused. Bar surface, 500 year old oak, was originally the main beams in the bar that managed to get reused as bar... More
