What a lovely restaurant and pub. Whether you want just a drink or both, this is the place to come. We had Sunday lunch and its amazing with all the trimmings. You can see its frequented by regulars as the staff know the guests names and vice versa, which adds to the atmosphere. Be prepared to struggle to get up... More

Lovelly interior, wood beams, and fire place. The food is extreamly good, and this pub / restaurant is a mile or 2 off the beaten track, in the Countryside, it is a romantic hideaway. If you ask for the Garlic butter mushrooms, with melted chese, you will experience the best you ever had, with loads of melted chese, The meat... More

The Linny was looking particularly special last night, the owners had made a huge effort to dress the bar and Hayloft restaurant beautifully and create a romantic ambience. It really worked, in our opinion. We eat there regularly and always enjoy the roasts and bar specials. Our Valentine's Day meal in the Hayloft met all our (high) expectations and the... More

Visited the Linny for the first time on Valentines evening, managed to book the last table. On arrival the place was packed, the welcome was warm & friendly. All the food is cooked to order so there was a wait...however boy was it worth the wait, quite possibly the most perfectly cooked Fillet Steak we have ever eaten. Will definitely... More

Great food, friendly atmosphere and an idyllic setting. Your typical British country pub. I had the Skrei Cod and would highly reccommend it!

We went to the Linny to celebrate my 65th birthday. We were a party of 15 and all the food came out very close together and all of it was excellent. The service was excellent and the staff were really efficient and friendly. The Linny itself is what I would call olde world style with areas in the bar for... More
