A busy, friendly and comfortable establishment. The set menu for a 3 course meal was chosen which was excellent value for money. The service was very good and we didn't have to wait long for any course. My only complaint was with the dessert; I opted for the Eton Mess and was disappointed with the amount of meringue that was... More

We got here shortly after they opened for dinner. As we walked in we where greeted by a lady behind a bar, she was very pleasant and made the usually awkward initial 'walk in' so easy and comfortable. The service was very good but with no compromise to the quality of food! Highly recommend!

The Goat Inn is a very old stone built building which has been there for ever. Different to how it used to be thirty years ago it is now a top class eatery with a varied and delicious menu, great friendly staff who during your meal ask if everything is okay. Highly recommended

Just happened to be driving past this lovely pub today and decided to stop in for Dinner - a decision that we would not regret! Lovely authentic country pub inside with a welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. The service was efficient and with a smile! The food was lovely, 4 courses later we were sufficiently stuffed! Each dish was well... More
