Great, great, great!!!!!!! Joe as has excelled himself. Moroccan burger and sweet potato fries. Can't wait for the winter menu to be launched. Bring on the hot pot, stew and Lasagne. Menu choice is great. Open fire is on and atmosphere is brilliant. Great evening.

Stayed at the bowl inn for our wedding night in the cottage. Wow wow wow. Beautiful decor, spotlessly clean, and incredibly comfortable. They made us feel welcome and looked after us so well! We visit regularly for drinks and food, so will definitely be back. Loved it! Only complaint is we didn't book for long enough!!

Had a lovely few hours here with best friends. Nice pub beautifully kept by extremely pleasant staff. Plenty of parking space in a nice setting. We had a great meal at very reasonable prices especially for the large portion size. Would definitely recommend and we will hopefully return
