The best pub I ever been. Family run, owner at bar, really friendly atmosphere, pleasant view inside. Good beer and very tasty food. If you would like to have feelings of mid England -you have to visit this pub

Had a lovely visit to The Blinking Owl on the weekend. A very traditional pub with roaring fires and a friendly smile to welcome you in. Food was all cooked fresh and very tasty. Highly recommended.
