Whenever we visit the Bowling Green at Bradwell we are never disappointed with the choice of food or drinks available. There is always an excellent choice of meats on offer in the Carvery along with fresh vegetables. Compared to other eateries, we find it excellent value. The landlord and his staff always make you feel welcome. We'll be back soon!

Stopped at this very comfortable, welcoming establishment again and took the dog on this occasion. Everything was a perfect stay with beautiful dog friendly room and patio doors out on the back garden space. They do have dog rules which is quite correct and to want to leave our dog on her own in unfamiliar surroundings does make her nervous....

We arrived about half an hour before the stated time and instead of feeling welcome we felt we had to leave and return later. The rooms are excellent although the TV was minute and did not work very well. Although they say dogs are welcome they cannot stay in the room alone and when eating you are shoved into a...

Dear madam on arrival you were told very politely that the rooms would be ready in half an hour and you decided to go for a walk around the village.

We stayed for 1 night last night. We arrived, entered the pub and were immediately greeted by the landlord. He was a happy chap and very kind. We got shown our room by a lady, we had a double room. No its not a boutique hotel, like one we recently stayed in in Montreal, 5* level and all....but I'll tell...

We have used the pub for the past few years, the staff are always friendly and the place feels like a traditional country pub. Good food and good beer at a reasonable price would definitely recommend.

We have visited the Bowling green on a number of occasions and have always been met with a fabulous friendly team who make us feel welcome!

We used the pub several times when we stayed a few doors away over New Year. The gaffer and his staff were really friendly and the beer and food were good too. The atmosphere is chilled - even the quiz on Tuesday.
