I visited the Durant arms yesterday for a wake. The staff welcomed us in with such kindness and had everything waiting for us the food was so fresh and delicious and they just kept bringing out more until everyone was full. What struck me the most though was how kind and courteous the staff were they made a difficult day...

Visited with two other couples for a night out. Very busy bar when we arrived so we went straight to our pre-booked table. Great choice of wines, menu was varied and food was very tasty and well presented. My only criticism was there could have been more vegetables to go with main courses. Service was good and it's a well...

Never stayed, have eaten here several times, on EVERY occasion we found both the food & welcome excellent. Out for a walk and a simple lunch or an evening meal both excellent. If you like ales... get the wife to drive!!

Renovated to a very high standard using local materials and maintaining the character of a traditional English inn, this village pub is a real find. Welcoming landlord and staff provide an excellent range of drinks in the bar whilst the dining area is light, warm and traditional. Menu choice is sensibly restricted so that food comes out fresh, plentiful, hot...

Never been before. Cracking village with pub in middle. Felt good as soon as arrived. Nice decor, good layout, tables well spaced apart. Roaring fires! 2 or 3 course Sunday lunch good value. Beef advertised as pink but came well done. Was taken away and replaced without any issues. One of the best pubs for Sunday lunch we have been...

Centred in a lovely village setting, with walks on the doorstep, this pub has everything going for it. Very welcoming, local feel with cosy bar area with real log burner, into a dining room with a traditional but snug intimate feel and real napkins on the table . Very friendly staff, good prices on the menu and great food delivered...

My impressions when first seeing the place was wow. It looked a very unique village, right out of a hammer HH, a village time forgot. The room was first class. En-suite bathroom, very very clean and picturesque and comfy. Was very roomy. The pub itself whilst small was really friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and arrived very fast...

Just left after an exceptional roast - we're massive foodies and agreed it was the best pub roast we've had. Warm service, lovely ale and really helpful with our 7 month old. Wish we lived nearer! Skip Sharpham (where they were very unhelpful and indifferent) and come here.

This is the second time that we have stayed here and we still had that wonderful feeling of peace and calm as we drove into this idyllic, sleepy village. On this occasion we were booked into room 3 which, being at the back of the hotel, didn't have the same wow factor as room 1 with its views of the...
