Stayed here with my partner for weekend break. First impressions excellent. Frontage very nice indeed. Friendly welcoming staff really can tell this is a community run place as everyone shows such pride and care. Great little room. Loved the kitchenette where you can prepare breakfast with the delicious offerings from the shop curtesy of the local butchers. Best eggs I've...

My wife and I visited the Raven Inn for lunch during February 2017. This is a community run pub, and was extremely freindly. Locals were chatty, services was good, food was excellent and toilets were clean. Dogs are welcome in the pub, and several well behaved dogs were around the bar area. There are tables outside for when the sun...

What a fabulous traditional pub. The staff & locals were all very welcoming & a great advertisement for this community run venture. The four of us arrived in the cold & dark after a days walking having missed the ordering time for meals. However, this was no problem to the staff who still offered us a full menu. The choice...

Visited this lovely friendly place yesterday. Ordered meals for 7 of us from a great menu. All meals served hot and thouroughly enjoyed. The homemade cheese and onion pie was delicious. The all day breakfast was a hit with my husband. Thank you for great service friendly staff, we will definately return

We are very sorry indeed to hear of your experience on Sunday night. Please understand that the comments of this lady, who I understand was a customer at the pub and not officially acting as a member of staff at the time, were her personal view and not those of the Raven Inn. We are appalled that you have had...

Booked in for a Sunday lunch, it was beautiful. The service was polite and courteous. The food was great and the ales were very tasty. Couldn't believe it was a community run pub, which made it all the more enjoyable. Many thanks.

This jewel of a pub was a lovely surprise after 16 miles of Offa's Dyke. Not only was the food amazing but the welcoming atmosphere of the volunteer staff made it hard to leave. This is how local, village pubs should feel...the centre of the community not just a place to drink alcohol.

This little hotel goes to show what a community can do when it woks together. we started our evening with friendly drinks in the bar, and then had a superb meal. We had a great overnight here. Comfortable, clean rooms and great service. This is a must visit and we will be back.
