The food is great and in generous proportions. Sally (Welly Woo Woo) was very helpful and charming. The atmosphere was great and we got talking to the locals for a lot longer than we had anticipated. A lot of fun.

Great pub serving a wonderful range of real ales. The food is wonderful & it has been one of our favourite places to eat for many years & we are thankfully making a long overdue return visit next week. The staff are cheerful & have always bent over backwards to accomodate us over the years. The Beef Stroganoff is superb & my personal favourite, but it is all great food. Nothing fancy just well prepared. well cooked gorgeous grub. Don't even start me on the bread pudding!!! I am more than happy to recommend this pub & every person we have taken there, & there have been many have loved it & the local ones have also become regulars. They also do take away from their menu, so it just gets better.

Such a friendly atmosphere when you entered. The meals were promptly served and were delicious, as were the sweets. Nothing was too much trouble. With such a reasonable price we would recommend anyone to go there.

We were in a party of 12 including 4 children under 14 on a wet and cool Wednesday night. We clearly put the kitchen under pressure dealing with this number of guests all at once but once things got under-way it was a very nice experience. The menu is superb and would suit all tastes and the serving size is large so ensure you are hungry on the night you choose.Pricing is good and the drinks are not over priced either. This is not a posh place but comfortable and clean and the staff couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. They also do B&B
Highly recommended

Our family ate at the Cannon Inn twice in the evening and again one lunchtime.
We were impressed by the extensive choice of home cooked food and the size of the portions. They certainly believe in sending you home well fed. In fact it was fortunate that on each occasion we decided to walk home.
The rack of ribs served on a very large silver platter and the 16 ounce tea bone steak (which was a genuine 16 ounces) proved to be a worthwhile challenge... and that was only the main courses. The starters and sweets were equally HUGE!
The Cannon is more of a pub than a restaurant but it is a comfortable and relaxing place to dine. The staff are both efficient and friendly and the service could not be faulted.
It is best to book in advance on a Tuesday and a Thursday which are speciality nights. We turned up on a Thursday (curry night) without a booking, and in spite of the Cannon being very busy they found a table for us.
