Eating Out (Within Walking Distance)

The Old George Inn 01769 560513
This is our local pub and most probably the friendliest pub you have ever been too! It's only a 12 minute walk from the cottages (it is uphill to get there, but at least it's down hill on the way back!!).

The pub serves food a few days a week but please call to check and we would recommend booking. The Old George serves Real Ales, changed regularly and great food, they welcome dogs in the bar.

The Golden Lion 01769 560213
A pub for the locals! The haunt for the local football team and other sports team. A basic pub offering simple pub food.
