We booked a family buffet to celebrate our 50th birthdays in November. We could not fault it, really good food/wine and great staff. We would definitely book a celebration here again.

By the time we realised there was no more hot food, the sausages were cold. The beef and turkey were out of tins. There were... More

I have (out of curiosity)read some of the reviews left regards the "Old Farmhouse" and can not believe what people say. I like to write a fair and honest review and not just review when I find something not... More

This was my second visit to this place. First one was may last year. What a difference....I'm not sure what was worse, the sub standard food or the lack of staff. I could understand if the staff were busy but one of them was on her phone for probably 5 mins while I was trying to order a drink. The... More

A Beautiful farm barn conversation on the edge of the National Park serving great British pub food. locally sourced and home made always served along with seasonal specials. A large 80 seater bar area with real log fire or a tastefully decorated restaurant for more cosy dining there's even a function suite available too. Just on the coast road towards Bardsea.
