Description: Whether you’re up for a party, watching sport or meeting with friends and family for a bite to eat, the The Punch Tavern in Sturry is the place to relax and unwind. We’ve something for all the family – from our freshly carved, slow cooked roasts exactly how you like them, tasty pub food classics such as hand battered fish and steak and ale pie – all available on any day of the week. What’s more, every day we make our own fresh dough so you can tuck into freshly made stone baked pizzas and garlic bread. Or, we have a range of burgers and vegetarian dishes – and all main courses come with unlimited veg, salad and sides. With every plateful offering cracking value, it's no wonder locals in and around can't get enough.

General consensus in our group of eight was that the meat was ok, the rest was bland.
The Yorkshire puddings didn’t taste properly cooked, the cauliflower cheese contained very little cheese, the potatoes tasted as though they’d been sat on the hotplate for days and the only choice of gravy was beef and onion.

Overall the meal was a costly disappointment and none of us was at all satisfied with the poor quality of the food. Suffice to say we won’t be eating there again.

Nice location, food not great, very tired decor, tables not cleared promptly because it seems they short staffed.

We were staying just down the road and fancied a hearty meal and we found one! Dazzled by the small, medium, large or kingsize, both adults went for kingsize, "would you like half roast chicken with that?'....erm, 'yes?' The meal was huge, even by my large standards but this is not a complaint in the slightest, it was the nicest meal I have tasted in a long while, the only thing negative about it was the clumped together stuffing (which seems to happen everywhere you go), the price was brilliant too, it came it to £32.50 for a family of five with drinks, 3 small carverys (nothing small about them and they went back for second vegetables!) 2 kingsize, 2 pints of coke and 3 fruit juices.

I would go back again if in the area as the price was brilliant and the portion size aplenty (I wouldn't go kingsize again though!)

clean and tidy country pub, friendly staff and a nice beer garden, food tasty and ample at a very cheap price, honestly what some people expect after reading some of these reviews for less than a fiver is beyond me !!!!
