We visited this pub 3 times on our weekend break. We stayed just down the road at Sunnyvale caravan park. Staff were very friendly and helpful the food was really good. Pub was very dog friendly which is always a bonus and the set up for covid was excellent. We will be returning on our next holiday break.
Very nice and modern pub due to the covid restrictions we sat on one of the 3 beer gardens and had a lovely time the staff were outstanding.
Firstly COVID measures are top notch and the first priority upon arrival Then seated at socially distanced tables. I had a Sunday lunch whilst the better half had hunters chicken. Service was friendly and pleasant and the meals served in a more than reasonable time frame. Both were hot and so tasty, the veg cooked to perfection. We followed this up with desert and again was not disappointed. The warm chocolate brownie was to die for. Very reasonably priced and all in all a wonderful dinning experience given the current climate. Here for a week and will definitely visit again.
Been before and was just the same, great staff, food and atmosphere. You can also take dogs in the bar, who also get snacks. What's not to like, give it a try.

Well done ladies it’s how it should be thank you for a lovely time.
Visited here when we were on holiday in Louth cannot tell you how good the food is in this pub would 100% recommend this place to anyone. Excellent service staff were amazing especially in the situation we find ourselves at the moment. If we are ever that way again it will be the first place on our list to visit. Must just say the portion sizes are fantastic cannot compliment it enough

The staff were great with my dairy free diet also!! Thank you Axe and Cleaver!
