We have eaten here on numerous occasions in the last 6 month. Steaks, casseroles, soup and more recently the amazing bull burgers. The food has always been top class. A great little village pub with a friendly atmosphere. Would definitely recommend

I took the wife out for a meal on our anniversary and we weren't disappointed! We both has "Surf and Turf". The steaks were cooked perfectly and the scallops were amazing. On previous visits we have had the Bull Burgers and I can honestly say they are the best burgers I have ever tasted. On top of this Nigel and Ali are brilliant hosts. I can't recommend it highly enough!

After making the most of Good Friday's amazing weather we stopped here and sat outside. Great ale and excellent food with the tranquil backdrop of Matfen's village green.

I am a local to Matfen and love what Alison and Nigel are providing for those of us lucky enough to have a village pub. The wine is great and it's a lovely atmosphere to dive into straight into straight from work on Fridays. Recently there has been an extra incentive to call in and that is the most delicious homemade beef burgers I can ever remember having. I urge anyone reading and thinking of visiting to call in and try one. Food is available Thursday -Sunday.

We enjoyed our visit on Saturday evening. Ali made us really welcome. This is a beautiful village pub. We came to listen to Tom McConville( "The Newcastle Fiddler ") who was on top form. We look forward to returning soon. Thank you Ali, Tom and Andy for a great evening.
