Good choice of dishes...portions huge, be warned you may not be able to do starters AND puds. Service was excellent bearing in mind they had a party of 20 in. Seated us away from the celebrations, and no delay on service. Can recommend the pork belly. Yum.

Lovely food and a warm welcome as usual. Very quiet dining room but full menu available. Steak pie must have had a whole cow in it. Very filling and delicious.

This is our favourite pub for a roast dinner! Everyone that works there is extremely lovely, and the food is always consistent, I mean always! From 2021 going for a roast to now in 2024 it has remained consistent which I think is something to be really proud of for a business, because I know when I recommend this place, they will have a good meal, 10/10!!! Thank you for being such a lovely, homely, consistent pub! Oh and they are also so friendly to the kids when we bring them and accommodating!

Warm welcome from sole member of staff working the front of house, which is always a nice bonus.Ordered kids fish and chips to arrive first when we ordered drinks, arrived very quickly and a huge portion too. Ordered two mains one from the special Cottage Pie with seasonal vegetables and Cajun chicken burger. Food was great quality traditional home style pub food, cottage pie was made with good quality mince, wasn’t a microwave special. Chicken burger was a proper piece of chicken in herbs and spices rather than just a frozen burger.Traditional log burner in the corner too, which we sat by, always gives a bit more atmosphere!Will definitely be returning go try the Sunday roast!

2nd time we have been here with a very large group including approx 10 kids. Considering it's a small pub, they did a great job both times. Food was good pub food, served with a smile and all pretty good in terms of timing (we ordered a lot of food!) All the options you need (veggie, sandwich, specials, big mains, kids menu).We will head back again in the summer, really pleased this place has reinvented itself!

Very clean and tidy country pub in Soberton Heath. Sunday lunch previously was great. Nice games room too.Well worth a visit.

Vistes this pub for the first time, soaking wet as was hiking. The greeting from the young barmaid the very nice and made to feel welcome. Order drinks and food. I highly recommend the ham,egg, chips and peas, absolutely lovely. This pub has ample parking and good outdoor space. Highly

This had some really good reviews so I am disappointed to write that my visit here wasn't one that would see me wanting to come back in a hurry.The location is nice, the decor is modern and clean, the staff are friendly, the biggest let down is the food.Our table ordered 2 jacket potatoes and the plates were collected with barely a 3rd eaten yet we weren't asked if everything was OK. The potatoes were brown on the inside and tasted horrible.Drinks were good.

Lovely find for a Sunday meal!Stumbled upon this pub on google when looking for somewhere to eat after a walk in Soberton. And i'm sooo glad we did because it was great!Food was really nice, good selection for adults and children.Waitresses were lovely and made a real effort to make sure we had everything we needed and edited the menu a bit for my daughter who has allergies.And the pub itself was beautiful, cosy and the music playlist was 10/10.another star added for the play area as was the best quality play area i've seen in a pub garden for a long time, was in good condition and my daughter had great fun.
