My Mom and I popped into Knockerdown on our way back from a meeting and we had a lovely lunch. Great surroundings, great service (a thank you to our waitress Tracey) and great food. Just what you need for a good lunch!

We have dined both in the 'old pub' part and the nicely decorated restaurant section at the back, and both have been good meals with a nice atmosphere. Staff were attentive and helpful, and the food was good (and good value) The pub also operates a loyalty card which is unusual but a bonus if you are over in the... More
