We ate here a couple of weeks ago and decided to go back, I'm glad we did. The food was delicious, I had red Thai chicken curry and it was beautiful, just a little kick to it nothing to serious, my husband had Cajun chicken and that was equally nice. The staff were really nice, not too in your face...

This place is ideally located in the middle of Beckermet with picturesque surroundings opposite the village green, it has a nice bar/restaurant, a good selection of real ales and good food. We were initially placed in room 6, accessed via an external fire escape. This room was noisy being too near the kitchen so we asked to be moved further...

We went for a night's dinner, bed & breakfast. The meal, £65 for two of us, was a Valentine's Special Menu and it was so tasty, and great value with three courses and a 'sorbet refresher' course after the starter. We both had fish dishes for starter & mains and the mains in particular, hake with pasta in a cream...

Came here to eat several (8-10) times throughout November and December. Had to ask for the heating to be put on as it was a bit cold a couple of times, although there are a few tables right next to the fire at the bar level.

A warm venue with friendly staff, complete with an exceptional menu. As ever, my first choice was for steak pie, which surprisingly was absent from the menu!
