We visited in March, and had a lovely meal . We read The Druid Inn had been taken over. Our son was working down the road, and we need somewhere dog friendly , it made sense to go back but we were cautious about whether it would be as nice an experience .
We need not have worried, we were made welcome as soon as we stepped through the door, the lady working behind the bar was lovely and friendly .
We were a party of 8, we were sat in a little part that was sectioned off with one large table, it was perfect for us , as we had plenty to do catch up on .
I am quite a squeemish person, and cant help but check out cleanliness, everything was very clean, toilets, and the kitchen which I had a nosey at walking past, and everything was organised and very clean indeed .
Between our party , we had curry ( chilli chicken ) and was delicious , Steak and kidney puddings, fish and chips, a lamb curry dish , salads etc . There was something to suit everyone .
Considering we were a large party, all our food came together, and was fresh and hot , we had a few extra requests not on the menu, and there was no problem at all, if they could do it, they happily would . We had questions about the ingredients of the food, and they could answer them all, they clearly know everything about the food they cook in the kitchen .
The team who work there are an absolute credit to the owners , we had a lovely time back in March , but a lady called Sam has taken over since then, and this time we felt everyone went absolutely out of the way to make us welcome, to a point that without question we would return there because its so welcoming, not just because we can take our dog . .
Sam the new owner is really lovely, and is clearly passionate about looking after those who come and visit , we felt so looked after , it really was lovely .
I know dogs are not everyones cup of tea , but if we can't take our dog, then we tend not to visit , and The Druid Inn is still very dog friendly , and Max my dog was fussed by everyone, he was in heaven .
I'm quite difficult to please , and am quite fussy , so If I like somewhere, then it must be good , being a party of 8 with different likes and dislikes, and every single one of us happy with our meal, then it speaks for itself .
We will come back , but this time hopefully stay over , so that we can make the most of the stunning surroundings , its in a lovely area .
Great value too :)
