“Unwelcoming”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

We visited with friends - 7 of us in total for drinks, and as we were staying locally, to consider eating there during our one week stay. We are sorry to report that it was a negative experience indeed. The bar staff were unfriendly, the beers were short measured, and a request to top them up was received very negatively. Two of the party live locally and were quite embarassed by the experience. There are many lovely welcoming pubs in the area, sadly not this one.

“Dog friendly pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Basic menu. Dog friendly pub. Local real ales. Food was adequate. Stay away from the steak unless you like it well done.

“Small quiet pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

We just happened to be in Taddington, a small quiet village now by-passed by a dual carriageway. We had Sunday lunch. Lamb roast which was excellent and accompanied by 7 veg. Not masses of it but it was a very nice mixture. The staff wre very friendly. I would certainly recommend it, but you have to go off the beaten track to find it which makes it all the better.
