We called in for Sunday lunch at this pub just after midday. We were given a table for 2 close to the doorway and advised it was reserved for someone at 1:30pm. The meal was good and the service adequate but the constant opening and closing of the door by people (with their dogs) was a bit tiresome. In order... More

Lovely range of pub classics at a really good price. Huge portions. Friendly service. I can't often be bothered to post a review even after a nice meal but was inspired to do so this evening. Good option if staying at sandy balls.

Mediocre pub food, watery curry with stodgy rice over priced drinks not a pleasant experience.Bar service very slow even though probably eight people in entire pub would not return again.

Some friends and I visited the pub on Saturday 12th November and it was lovely. I had the steak and ale pie which was exquisite and I was envious of everyone else's food. The dessert was awesome, a homemade bread pudding with custard. The ale they served was a nice traditional ale.

Lovely Autumnal dinner in a friendly, warm environment. Great menu board. Heartwarming meals on a cold November Saturday. Very reasonably priced.

We ate in this extremely friendly pub and had a really excellent meal. The steak pie is hard to beat and all the meals looked lovely. It is also a dog friendly pub. Welook forward to returning

Two family's with kids 6 and 8 we stayed at Sandy Balls camp and wanted to walk to the local pub. Looked nice and the donkeys outside were sweet. Upon walking up to the bar the bar lady didn't even welcome us or acknowledge us, just stood staring at us. Of course we happily greeted her, asking for a lunch... More

After hearing from the food staff that they had been having trouble with table numbers I went after half an hour waiting to check that all was well only to get an angry and sarcastic response for my question. I don't mind waiting too much but do not like rudeness. When our food arrived two out of the three meals... More
