Really great place! Nice cosy atmosphere. Menu was interesting. Stand out flavours came from the Mushrooms on Sourdough, Fish Pie and crumble. Wow! Nice wine, and great service too. Would highly recommend.

Great evening for valentines, had the soup and beetroot for starters both were lovely, mains burgers really well cooked tender and side of hand made onion rings and hand made fries were great, lots of seafood on the menu. Great all round

This was our 4th time and it was great each time. I like the changing menu although I was stuck with roast on Sunday which is not my favourite. However, I would choose that roast again and again and again- delicious!

Lovely welcome from the landlord on coming through the door to a very busy pub. Great atmosphere, lovely seating area and tables. Great service and staff are wonderful. Thanks for Tom and Holly for taking care of us. Food was fabulous so glad we popped in for dinner. Definitely be back regularly. Highly recommend.

Great food and location! Lovely place.
The only disappointing thing was the waitress, she was quite rude and blunt and didn’t really act like she wanted to help.

The food & service was excellent.
We were in the barn which was quiet but not an issue as we could all talk comfortably, however the bar atmosphere was better. We were also sat at a 2 tier table which was slightly weird especially as other tables were free (we didn't ask to move as we had been told that it was busy, but it wasn't, and i'm sure if we had asked we could have)
Recommend the the roast but all dishes were excellent.

I do like this pub. Helpful, friendly staff and excellent food. Extra busy due to Xmas, affecting service a bit and very noisy, but still enjoyed it very much. Will definitely go back soon!

Excellent food, but quite a small venue. We were sat next to a table of eight which did not make for an intimate dinner for two. Probably best experienced in the summer.

Our first visit to this pub as a group of four where we were told that our table was in the Barn which was outside the pub in their garden area. Our food was lukewarm because it was carried along the path uncovered outside in the garden leading to the separate building - the Barn. It was very noisy as there were two large tables in the same room and the staff were not very attentive to us. Would not repeat the visit unless we had a table in the main pub area.

Our first visit to this pub, found at random by reading reviews etc. and it was a delight. Wonderful setting, with a contemporary but traditional decor, and a nice roaring fire in the corner. We were in the main pub, not the barn, but I did have a look and that also looked fab. Huge garden too!

Food was really good value, we had the Sunday menu and my roast sirloin beef was lovely and rare (as I had requested, and very unusual for a large joint so was really impressed, especially as they served a medium for others who asked for it), and amazing Yorkshire and roasted potatoes. All for £17!

The mushrooms on toast starter was also fabulous, and again I don't say that often!

The service was brilliant, very attentive, friendly and professional. To top it off, they also have a great selection of ales and beers, even "Good Old Boy" which I like a lot.

Overall, I was so impressed I felt compelled to write this review, so I recommend it highly!

The overall ambience is fantastic, the staff are friendly and very welcoming. Everyone in the bar and dining were having a lovely time and it felt very jolly. The beer and prosseco options were excellent and the wine was okay (would prefer a couple better Shiraz options). The bartender was outstanding and the service outstanding.
The food was okay - my scallops almost undercooked and great quality but lacked seasoning/taste, my fish, potatoes and veg again good quality produce but lacking in flavour and completely swimming in butter! The cheesecake okay and saved by the passion fruit coulee. The quality of produce very good but the taste/seasoning really lets this place down especially because it has a fantastic vibe and a wonderful locals feel. Perhaps they are trying to be too fancy and need to go back to basics with the food and offer quality tasty gastro pub food, ie delicious shepherds pie, apple crumble, etc.

Excellent Sunday lunch roast with the family. Roasts were delicious. Kids roasts at £12 each felt a bit expensive. We sat in the barn which was very cosy

We went on a Thursday expecting a good choice of fresh fish as per their website and found that due to a function that night the fish available was very limited. Two of us then chose fish and chips and when it arrived we sent it back because it was not cooked properly. Next time we will ring ahead and check menu status

We went there on Sunday for lunch as it was my birthday.I am a vegetarian so had to have the only choice of pasta which was veg dish.Well the pasta was over cooked and Luke warm.Didn’t look that great either.Considering it was my birthday I had the worst meal.The rest of the family had roast and they enjoyed it.Service was poor too.

High quality Sunday roast, well-presented and good portion size. Friendly staff, great ambiance, lovely surroundings. My only gripe is price of drinks which seemed a hit expensive.

Staff very welcoming and helpful, clearly a busy Saturday night, but this didn't phase the staff. Menu choices were excellent, scallops delicious and rib-eye steak perfectly cooked. Waiting staff happy to make menu adjustments when asked. The atmosphere was unhurried and made for a perfect night out with friends.

Lovely Sunday afternoon roast dinner with my daughter. I had the beef and my daughter went for the pork. Both excellent despite us being right at the end of the end of the service. Excellent glass of red to wash it all down too! Friendly service and warm welcome.

We had a great Sunday lunch at the Pinkneys Arms this week. Everything was cooked really well and they didn't scrimp on the portion sizes. I had the roast pork belly and porchetta and my companion had the roast sirloin of beef - there wasn't too much conversation as we were enjoying our food too much ! Service was excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and swift. We will be returning soon
