Have eaten here several times in the last few months, as a couple, and with groups of 7, 17 and 20. Food and service have been excellent and the ambience ideal.

Located on the main road through the pictures village of Elton this pub is full of warmth and traditional friendly staff. We only stopped for a quick drink while touring through the village but this pub does have a restaurant which was very popular.

Service was dreadful and had to ask several times for drinks. Not offered the wine menu or coffee after the meal. Very disorganised and staff were scarce at times! Food average and not a place we would revisit. Our bill had other tables drinks on...More
