Twenty eight walkers pre ordered lunch at this pub, then went for a two hour ramble arriving back to find a lovely warm welcome with our food already for us. From the moment we walked through the door the service and food was excellent. Well worth a visit.

Delightful staff, great food, a friendly happy atmosphere. I would be tempted to live in any village that had a pub like this - though as it is, Martinstown looks perfect!

Really great pub set next to a beautiful little stream. Took four generations of my family for a Sunday roast and everyone really enjoyed it. Good portion sizes and really good price. The beer garden is a sun trap, so will definitely pop down in the summer

We had 18 people booked in for a surprise Birthday Sunday lunch, which I had popped around the day before with decorations and a Birthday cake. We arrived to a decorated long table in the restaurant area already for when people people arrived at the bar for drinks and then to sit down. We all ordered our meals, most chose... More
