“Excellent food, fab views and amazing staff”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Great menu, very local choices. Lovely setting in the main restaurant with amazing views of the hills and countryside and great ambience. Staff really welcoming and friendly. Don't listen to people complaining, maybe on a busy day you may have to wait but I found my visit faultless. Definitely going back and can't wait!!! Defo in my top ten pubs ever visited.

“Shame about the food!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Arrived for birthday lunch on a quiet Monday lunch. Refurbished pub is excellent. Same you can't say the same about the service which was very slow. Food was also pretty poor. Had to send beef sandwich back because it was like the sole of an old boot. Replacement was a ham sandwich which was full of fat and tasteless. Sort the quality of the food out and stop trying to con people by the presentation.

“A Great Improvement”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I had visited the Pack Horse with friends over a number of years but sadly its service and the property deteriorated, so it was a pleasure to go to the place again after its upgrade, the layout has been greatly improved and makes more sense, the staff were welcoming and the range of food although limited was reasonably priced and presented well, I will be interested to see if they can maintain this, hopefully they will, I forgot to say the pub for those that do not know it situated in beautiful countryside and in parts there are views across the valley, than can be seen indoors or outdoors depending on the weather

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

We went on a Tuesday evening, the food and service were very good. There is plenty to choose from on the Menu and the wine is not overpriced. Very good Coffee to finish off. My only criticism is that there is a very limited choice of Brandy, I would have liked to see an Armagnac on the list. All in all a very pleasant visit.
