“Great find only 10mins from Callow Top”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

11 adults and 15 children descended on them at the end of lunchtime but they dealt with us very smoothly. Everyone enjoyed their carver. good quality and large portions. Great children's play area that has chickens and a large rabbit running around in. They also had a bouncy castle on as it was May bank holiday which was great for the 15 children. 10 mins walk back up the steep hill back to Callow Top was tough but over relatively quickly and nice that you can walk their from the site rather than having to drive.

“Generous portions of good pub grub”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We visited this pub on the busy Easter Saturday and were very impressed. Our party of four adults and four children all enjoyed their meals which were very generous in size. Everything appeared to have been home made too including the delicious chips (my one gripe when attending any eaterie is frozen chips!) would definitely visit again.

“Black pudding!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Had the most comfortable stay, was made to feel at home. The rooms are very comfortable, newly refurbished with ensuite bathrooms.

Breakfast was incredible! Try the black pudding. Absolutely amazing!
