After a number of recommendations from both friends and acquaintances over the past several months, we paid our first visit to the Calf's Head for lunch last Friday. The weather was absolutely glorious and we saw this beautiful tranquil setting at its very best. We arrived slightly early at what the owners describe as 'country restaurant, hotel and watering hole'... More

Ate at the Calf's Head last Saturday night for the first time. Very friendly staff, good value food from a very varied menu including the specials and, considering the vast number of diners, we were attended to very efficiently. The actual food took 30 minutes to arrive which on a busy Saturday night I rate as acceptable. I had Venison... More

If you look at the photo it will tell you the attention to detail as to both the premises and the food. None. If there was an apostrophe that has also fallen off. The food was diabolical. However, another blob as the staff were nice!

I lunched with a party of Women's institute members when a guest on one of their outings. The staff were friendly and attentive and the meal was well cooked (vegetables were not overcooked). We sat in the garden and chatted after the meal. A good lunch on a bus outing. The pub/B&B has private parking,and is located in a narrow... More

Always love visiting the calfs head with family, staff have always been friendly and pleasant, food is always to a great standard and they always manage to squeeze all 6+ of us in somewhere. Really happy to see their vegetarian options expanding too. I had the mushroom linguini last time there and it was superb! Couldnt recommend enough

Forty members of my husbands family met for lunch last Saturday. We had a very tasty carving buffet followed by the best sweet selection I have seen for years! The staff were very attentive and we were able to sit and chat for as long as we wanted. Altogether an excellent meal and great value for money.

We did not book ahead but arrived about midday (on a Thursday) with the thought it would be quiet. How wrong we were as most tables in the conservatory were reserved but fortunately we managed to get one of the last unreserved. Service was excellent with the young staff being very efficient and well trained. Food was very good with... More

What can I say fro the moment we walked in to the moment we left the service was fantastic nothing too much trouble. The portion size was amazing only to be out done by the flavour of the food.
