I dont know if they plan to start serving food again. Its a very clean, trouble-free pub but the only thing is its a bit depressing as none of the clientele will talk to you unless they already know you from somewhere else.

Went here with my husband and my daughter at 1.45pm. Went inside and the man behind the bar said quite abruptly yes can i help you, said we were in for a meal, he told us they'd stop serving at 2. We only wanted something small and somewhere nice to feed my baby. Completely disappointed!!

Went here on Easter Sunday for meal and a few beverages. Plenty choice on the menu and good value for money. Will be back in the future.

As pub grub goes - this little gem of a place does it better than most. Been a few times now and will make it a regular outing. Staff are friendly, cheerful and chatty! It might seem a little tucked out the way - but it's worth the effort to go there.

We attended a wedding reception at Blacksmith's on 7 June. We had an excellent meal, served with smiles by the hardworking and cheerful staff. It was an ideal venue for a small wedding and we would be happy to go back there for a meal.
