What a delight this pub is, and well worth jumping in the car to get to it. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and delicious food. Looking forward to my next visit.

Excellent friendly attentive service without being intrusive. Food excellent as was the wine by the glass (guess who was driving). Really impressed. Special occasion rather that everyday pub grub! We will go again and soon - just got to find any old excuse.

The Lickfold Inn is a traditional English pub that supplies a refined food and beverage offering, not only to the local community but the surrounding area and further a field over time. The kitchen is the operational engine and heartbeat of the Lickfold Inn and a huge amount of time and effort has been invested in it to ensure that the food we prepare and serve is outstanding. The state of the art equipment that has been installed into the specially designed kitchen allows the passionate kitchen team to cook to the highest level and produce their very best. The end result is progressive, delicious tasting food that captures the surrounding area, and that you see on the menu. The restaurant is situated upstairs in the Lickfold's beautiful dining room. With its Tudor features and exposed beams it is the perfect place to savour and enjoy Tom and Graham's original and fresh cuisine.
