“Very different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Really authentic old pub in a wonderful village. The layout needs some getting used to but the food is excellent and the service friendly and helpful. I personally loved it but understand why some wouldn't. My only gripe was fellow diners who spoke loudly to each other in ghastly national theatre dialects. Given the layout it is imperative to be very friendly and willing to join in with each other...still the pub can't be held responsible for its clientele!

“Wonderful Food and Peace and Quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

No TV , no rubbish music (well noise), and no football on TV, no tv at all - excellent. Just an honest traditional pub that serves excellent food, well presented, piping hot, and bags of atmosphere. No bar counter, beer served direct from the barrel. Service very efficient and both our starters and mains wee excellent.

“Don't miss out! - ring and book..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

A fantastic evening with friends in this pretty pub. Great meal cooked to order served by lovely staff.
Ales from their 'Pump Room' hit the spot and a little banter with friendly locals topped the evening off.
I'm pretty sure we'll be back.

“Yet another great stay at The Low House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Yet another time to visit and stay at favourite pub if only for one night, we happened to pick a themed night for the food, which was Spanish night and good value at £15 a head for three course supper. The Tapa's starter was excellent, main course of paella very good and the dessert of flavoured ice cream (coconut and burnt caramel)absolutely the best ice cream I have ever tasted since holidaying in Italy several year's back.

“Quaint and welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

This is a very quaint pub in a very picturesque village. The staff were very welcoming and the food was good. there is a good choice of beers in the tap room. As the weather was warm we sat in the pleasant garden at the back.
