Firstly the good points- the food was great, I had steak and ale pie and my partner had a sandwich. The pie was excellent, the steak very tender and the gravy was extremely tasty. The sandwich was also very good, the bread was delicious and the filling (brie and cranberry) was perfect. The staff were friendly and attentive and the... More

They accommodated 13 and 2 dogs and looked after us. Very generous portions all of a quality. Simple British pub grub done very well. They also keep good beer. The view across the valley is wonderful.

The Barrel is one of our local haunts and we regularly come here for good pub food. Large portions mean you never leave here hungry and the quality is consistently good. Service is fine, though less consistent.

The stunning view and sunset made up for what can only be said as a very average meal. The Steak pie I had was ok, let down a little by the stodgy pastry on top. The beer was not well kept. I doubt I'll be returning soon, and if I do only for the view.

Now whether it was the fact... More
