There were 4 of us in the group and ate here on a Saturday night were surprised to find no diners. Dining room was cosy with a lovely wood burner and the menu was of a good variation with a good choice for vegetarians or meat eaters! All very reasonably priced and tasted delicious. We had sirloin steak for £12.95... More

Super welcome and reception to this old pub. Quiet with cosy warm atmosphere aided by a nice warm fire. Delicious food served quickly with a smile.

We arrived in the area on a Sunday evening with no food for our self-catering cottage, and were afraid we would not get served so late. However the very kind landlady opened up the kitchen specially for us. Pretty standard pub fare, but we were very glad to have it. So often we have found places where staff were almost... More

We had quick stop at the Herbert Arms as we were passing through on our way to North Wales on a Friday lunchtime. The staff were very friendly and the food quality and service were very good. They provided a high chair for our lad and his meal was also very good. The pub was a little quiet, with nobody... More

Tried this at short notice and personally was disappointed. Should have taken more notice of one of the reviews!!!!! Who serves risotto on a bed of chips???? This plate arrived piled high, so many chips, not so much risotto, although what there was had lots of flavour. Please serve risotto either without chips or with them as a side dish... More

Friendly pub with good beer and food at very reasonable prices. Nice staff and a pleasant dining room. The fish and chips were excellent, and provided proof that the chef is a Yorkshire lass!

We now call in regularly, the food is well priced and of good quality, lots to choose from off the menu. Martin and Julie are very welcoming. The beers are good and parking easy. A very friendly atmosphere.

Stopped here for Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. We all had the Sunday lunch and dessert. There was pork or beef and we all had beef, they even did a smaller portion for my younger son. Plenty of choice too if you did not want Sunday lunch. Other nights they do specials too. They are closed on Tuesday. Staff... More

Friendly welcome, great selection of food, and served quickly ( which is vital for dining with small children!). Well priced and good location. Worth booking if you plan to eat, but 'drop ins' also welcome.

We've become regulars here mainly down to the lovely owners who are very accommodating. The food is very good and there's an ecellent choice for vegetarians. Our children also enjoy the friendly welcoming atmosphere a swell as the pool table and dominoes! We always leave feeling very happy and well fed! ☺️
