“Great local pub with exceptional food and service”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Five of us visited for dinner. We are all experienced travelers and dare I say, quite demanding when eating out. From the welcome as we entered the bar to the 'banter' and laughter as we departed, the service was consistently superb, extremely friendly and hyper-efficient. As to the food, all 3 courses were well presented, beautifully cooked and the steak were done to 'my satisfaction' to quote one of my senior friends (he doesn't enthuse that much!). All of us rate this pub highly and certainly we will return. Personally, don't miss the warm Chocolate fudge cake with ice cream - heaven. Thanks to all the staff for a great night out.

“What a wonderful place. ”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Heard about this place from friends so we had to try it....and I'm so pleased we did. A traditional pub serving traditional food. The owners were welcoming, and the food was beautifully cooked and fresh. I would recommend the steak and ale pie! Worth the 40 minute journey to get the, and yes, we will be going back!

“Traditional food with a twist”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Travelled 40 minutes in the car to get to the Axe & Cleaver, was well worth it.

Food was fantastic, one of us had the smoked haddock, one the beef and ale pie and the men had steak...... Apparently 16oz steaks, we think the scales need replacing because they were massive. The steaks were tender and cooked to perfection.

We would also recommend the deserts, the treacle pudding cakes were very light and full of flavour, the same goes for the cheesecake.

The staff were very friendly and excellent service.

As the proprietor states 'your only as good as your last performance'

You must visit.

“Lovely friendly landlord”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We visited for an evening meal. We were given a very friendly greeting. Food was OK - quite basic, but hot, fresh & plentiful.
