Had a lovely meal yesterday the roast beef was beautifully cooked and the puddings were amazing. Really sad we can’t go back this Sunday. Look forward to going back in December.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed lovely food at The Dumb Post Inn. We were both really impressed with our starters and main course (couldn’t manage a pudding unfortunately). Would definitely recommend!

Such a lovely pub. I took my elderly parents out for a quiet lunch. I was not disappointed. They felt very safe and the waitress was SO patient. Thank you.
