This was our first visit here, and we will most certainly return. We stayed on the campsite in our motorhome. The views from the site are amazing. Watching the farmers working the fields, listening to the cattle and sheep nearby and the wonderful sound of birdsong all contribute to a restorative, tranquil experience. OK, the pitches aren't completely level, but not bad enough to be an issue, and levelling is not very difficult to do. The site is high up in the hills, and as a result it does get breezy, but the plus side is that you can see for miles. The showers and toilets were clean and well looked after, although I understand that the previous week someone had rammed a nappy down one of the gents toilets instead of bothering to put it where it belonged. This had caused a real problem blockage, but I understand that this was sorted out as quickly as possible once Bridget had been informed that there was a problem. Unlike other reviewers, we did not find the showers too small. We had a really lovely meal in the pub and were very well looked after by the staff, whose professionalism and friendliness cannot be faulted. We will most certainly return to this lovely place, and I envy everyone who lives close enough to visit on a regular basis.

What can I say, visited here numerous times and never faults. Anything from a snack to carvery/specials. Staff are welcoming and honest, dogs welcome (but they do advise you to book for a table with a dog) lovely views from campsite and beer garden, very clean and nothing too much trouble for the staff. Always fairly busy when we go so we do book. Has been tidied up a lot Over the past year. Traditional country pub in a lovely setting, what more could you want! Would definitely recommend and will be back soon.

Thoroughly enjoyable food and great atmosphere. The owners, Bridget & Gary, always ensure we are well looked after and fully satisfied with our meals (which are consistently great quality). The menus are diverse, catering for all dietary requirements with a specials board which is regularly updated. Highly recommend popping in whilst on your travels on the A515!

Ok let’s start with the camp site, pitches not level, paid for water hock up but then had to let a motor home use my tape ( not a issues ). Only two toilets in the gents along with Two showers, ( busy weekend ) hence you had to wait, if your a large person your going to struggle in the shower, plus nowhere to put your shower things. Then one of the toilets went out of order leave one, which isn’t the site fault but the person that broke it, however wasn’t fixed for two days. Washing up area no good without a plug....plus side, great views from our pitch.

Now the pub, if you have a dog, forget it unless you’ve booked a table, food was nice on our first night, but when our friends joined us we thought we would all go back for the last night and sat in the garden, went to the bar to order and was told that we had to wait 30 minutes before they would take our order, so we all left and went down to Royal Oak and spent £120 there instead.

The whole setup needs reviewing.

Would I go back again. No I’ll go over to the site on the other side of the road.
