We live not far from the jug and glass and often visit at weekend for a leisurely pint. We had a German visitor staying with us and decided to go to jug and glass for an evening meal on a Saturday night. Although they were busy and we had not booked we quickly had a table, drinks and a menu... More

Nice greeting and friendly service. Lunch was ok and reasonably enjoyable. Lamb Rogan Josh and Fish pie both nice but a little dearer than some pubs with nothing extra for the increased price. There was no pie available so on leaving I said that I would like to return and try the 'Homemade' pie on the board only to be... More

we booked in advance for an evening meal for 26, Landlord gave us a private room. The food was excellent, service cannot be faulted. They coped exceedingly well with our large group, all food tasty, well presented. Choice of local hand pulled ales. The pub was a short walk uphill from Pear tree farm where we were staying, just far... More

A beautiful old country pub/restaurant that allows dogs in the bar area. Good selection of beers and a good range of choices on the menu. Not over priced.

Stopped here for lunch whilst on a walk. It was a Friday lunchtime and sadly the place was very quiet but times are hard in the pub world. Friendly barman/ landlord and a good choice of food from full meals to light bites. My chilli was delicious. This place is how pubs should be - traditionally decorated, welcoming and serving...

I went to the Jug and Glass with some old (average age about 75) friends on a Saturday in June. There were about 18 of us. We had pre-booked and placed our orders in advance - only fair to do this with such a large party. The food choice was good and everyone was very pleased with the quality of... More

We walked here from Manor Farm B&B up the hill. What a delightful experience that was through the sheep fields and woods. We were all tired from traveling and this dinner was one of the best we have had. Great traditional Pub food and a good selection of ciders and beer. The waiter had a wonderful sense of humor and...

Have been here several times recently for an evening meal with friends. This is a lovely, friendly, traditional pub with a lovely, people-focussed atmosphere. If you like a musak-free pub with a burning log fire, you will love The Jug. The beers change, but are all excellent. The food is lovely, though prices seem to be creeping up and the... More

One of my frequently visited pubs. Cozy atmosphere with log fire, hearty pub grub like cheese and pickle baguettes, fish and chips, landlord is a lovely man even though we tease him rather a lot ;)
