Dropped in for a pub feed and a couple of ales and was astonished by the quality of the food. It was far and away the best meal we had during a 4 week tour of England and Wales. Beef and Ale pie and their Fish pie were both outstanding. The pub had a wonderful, welcoming, atmosphere and the new...

This lovely pub is open for food all day, we popped in after finding it open in the afternoon. The beer is great, a local brewery. We looked at the menu and decided to return for an evening meal. We were not disappointed. The quality was extremely high, and plenty of it. Good atmosphere. Friendly staff. Looking forward to a...

We had a great lunch after a two and a half hour walk. We all hoped that the Giants rest would do a quality ploughman's lunch and they surpassed our expectations. It was also extremely reasonably priced. We couldn't recommend this more!

More than one visit over a few years. Good local brewery beer, Long Man, excellent food choices for lunch and inner menu, reasonably priced. Pub parking limited. Combine with a walk (uphill) to Long Man of Wilmington landscape sculpture. Recommended.

Enjoyed a fabulous meal at this gem of a place this weekend. The food was divine, service was excellent and the atmosphere perfect. Would highly recommend. It's set in beautiful countryside so an ideal place to start or end a country walk.

I went with friends for a birthday celebration and we had a delicious meal and the service was great! Most of us had one of the specials which was sausages cooked in cider and it was a very generous portion and extremely tasty! They do have vegetarian options. Cider seems to be one of their specialties many different types! Highly...

Used to go this venue frequently but had not been for over a year. Wished I hadn't left it so long. Fantastic and attentive service and great food. We all had something different, Fish, Local Sausages, Chicken and a Halloumi Salad. Verdict from all 4 of us was we will be back.

Took some friends for dinner, food was absolutely excellent. I had belly of pork that was absolutely fantastic with roasted beetroot. My friends had equally good food, rabbit pie and sausage and mash. We drank long blonde, a truly marvellous ale.
