Excellently cooked honest pub food, served with love and attention to give you what you ordered at it's best. Great atmosphere, genuine people, and spotlessly clean. (Flowers in the bathroom was a nice touch).

We have been to the Aleppo now about four times and each time we were made very welcome by bar staff and locals alike. Only stopped for a couple of drinks, but heard reports of very good food too, so can't wait to visit again to sample the fare.

Staying at a nearby cottage, so popped in here on the Friday night. Bit early, but they were happy for us to order on arrival. Good choice of food, and very tasty. Especially liked the Woodpecker - always a rare treat to find this on tap!

We stopped for an impromptu lunch. They were not busy. Our lunch was enjoyable and the service swift. Our barmaid/waitress, Rachel, was friendly and informative. She is an asset to the business. We recommend this historic Inn.

Have enjoyed good meals at the Aleppo over the years but recently have been disappointed with the quality. On last visit had to request a replacement pint of Guinness that did not taste right (and I do know my Guinness). This was changed with no apology offered or word spoken. Then the gammon steak arrived. Small, cremated and hardly edible.... More
