An utter mistake. The bangers seemed to be made from potted meat, except I can eat potted meat. I had one bite as did my wife. Seemed to be battered on the inside. The fish and chips were also wretched. What appeared to be a...More

This is a no fuss pub, very basic but reasonable beer - good prices and friendly staff. Not your traditional market town pub it is decor from a designer that spent more time drinking than thinking, but if a pint in a no frills pub...More

We visited the Miltons Head today. We were greeted warmly and informed straight away that the regular chef was off poorly & this could result in a small delay for food. No problem at all, prefer up front communication. Nice food with a good selection....More

A group of us on a tour called in for a few drinks most of the party were from Germany and really enjoyed the atmosphere of an old English pub. Service was friendly if not particularly swift, the visit went down well with the group.

glad it was good and quick, because things like the pies they are made to order and can take 20 min's or so.

Popped in for a beer. Pub very busy but served very quickly and efficiently by the hard working landlord!! Beer quality was excellent!! Although we didn't eat the food coming out of the immaculate kitchen looked lovely and smelt great!!!!

glad you enjoyed, and you should try the food as it is a new menu, the pies are cooked to order so most meals do take 15 2 20 mins to come out. But its worth waiting for.
