Had a meal here on our recent visit to Sidford, this is a very friendly, no nonsense, village pub with a good menu and very good food. The young waitress who served us was a delight and very helpful, would not hesitate to recommend.

Waitress was rather indifferent but food was good and served quickly. The menu was varied with a good choice. My partner recommends the Steak and Ale Pie.

This Pub is probably the best food in the area in our opinion, because of “home cooking”. This pub changed hands well over a year ago. The food is superb, atmosphere far better. This is a traditional pub with local beer and great food. It...More
