The Tempest Arms has won numerous awards and it's easy to see why! Great food and fantastic atmosphere in a wonderful original old pub setting. It does get very busy and very hot and stuffy so be prepared for that. Whilst I had the best prawn toast I've ever had there on one occasion, I also had some of the worst roast potatoes, so they don't always get it right but it's easy to overlook that when overall, it's a lovely dining experience! We've also felt that sometimes staff could be friendlier.

had a lovely substantial meal here on sunday lunchtime. portions large and out of our party we would rate it as 4 dared very good and 3 rated excellent hence the 'very good ' rating. the starters arrived after a little wait and were mostly excellent but the game terrine was a little bland. although the accompanying pickles etc were its saving grace. ribs tender and tasy and omg - the yorkshire pudding starter was huge. the main courses were on the whole enjoyed very much apart from a steak ordered very well done turning out to be more medium rare. we did some swaps on table rather than send it back . most of us could not finish and had no room left for the puds although plenty tempted us. we waddled out with that warm feeling that a good, wholesom meal at a reasonable price gives you

Went with my husband for lunch with our excitable puppy. Staff were very accommodating and food was excellent. Really great setting, definitely recommend. Quite big portions, but still excellent quality.

Excellent pub food with an extensive and varied menu. Great choices for nibbles, starters, boards and mains. The wine list is also very good and the draught beers, both local and national, well kept with a good selection.
The staff are always welcoming, cheerful and helpful - but then you would have to be working with Martin a masterly "mine host" setting high standards by his own example.
The Tempest has a great ambiance and is most times comfortably busy but there always seems to be a table to be found for you ere long. That's why we go back frequently.
You will not leave The Tempest hungry or disappointed.
PS - The parking is easy as well.
