One of those places that you know of, you've just never been to for some reason! Very glad to finally visit though, because it was absolutely lovely. Food was delicious, staff were very friendly and the place is just really cosy and welcoming. Has a great little bar area with open fire and the restaurant area is well sectioned to... More

It was a treat to be able to eat at this restaurant 2 nights in a row. There are many beers and ciders on tap and this place seemed to be very popular with the locals. Since the owner is a butcher, all beef served here are incredibly fresh. For the money you get great food and great service. At... More

This is close by for us and we couldn't be bothered to cook after a late return from work. Fancied fish and chips with a good pint. Delivered here with a smile. Recommended .

Stayed at a local hotel and read the reviews on the Hare and Hounds so decided to book a table. We were greeted by friendly staff and showed to our table. The restaurant was clean and cosy. However, we specifically go out for rib eye steaks when eating out. So chose that after our starter. Hubby had the surf kebab... More

Well this ain't one of them pubs. Located just of the M4 , this pub is defiantly worth 5min detour. When we entered with our... More

Been here a few times now - always good food and really friendly service. Good beer and everything a pub should be. Can get quite busy so if you want to eat it is probably worth booking a table. Highly Recommended

I can't remember eating in any better pub than this. Cosy atmosphere, friendly staff, brilliant dishes. I ate crispy duck noodle salad which was simply delicious. It is a bit far away but definitely worth a visit!
