Family of 5 dropped in today as were in the area and we were not disappointed. It seems a slightly off the wall mix of Thai and British pub grub however it really works! I was spoiled for choice but opted for the lamb massaman curry ( large portion and the lamb was so tender) delicious , we also had... More

We have been coming here for 2 years and keep coming back. We always receive a warm welcome along with our 3 year old and our dog. The atmosphere is relaxed and there is always plenty of events on through the year. The food is consistently outstanding and the service and warmth mean this is a firm family favourite.

Went here on a midweek evening with a couple of friends and we all had a Thai Green curry, it was absolutely delicious! The portions are generous without being over the top and we were happy with the price paid which included Thai crackers with the meal. They seem quite busy there, we booked in advance for a Tuesday eve... More

This place cleverly combines the twin but separate wishes of pub drinkers and pub dinners in one space with ease. The bar area provides ample space for those just wishing to enjoy a drink and the Old Smithy Forge makes an atmospheric place for dining. The staff are courteous and welcoming and the food provides both excellent food standards as... More

It’s not the first time we’ve been here, but this was the best visit so far. We like the mix of traditional pub grub with Thai food and have to say the quality of the food was top-notch – whether it was lamb shanks, gourmet burger or one of the Pad dishes. Food was still piping hot, fresh - and... More

The place was certainly busy on a Sunday afternoon- so I would advise booking in advance to be assured of a table. The quality of the food matched the popularity of the venue. I had the roast lamb dinner. The lamb was flavoursome. Roast Potatoes perfect. Veg was not soggy. A delicious gravy also. A delight to eat. Nice beers... More

We popped in as we were passing and enjoyed a lovely lunch. The food was delicious and hot. We cannot fault the service the staff were very helpful, friendly and made you feel welcome. We will visit again very soon as we can't wait to explore their menu. We had the sweet and sour fish with rice today and can... More

Nice find. A warm welcome as we entered the pub. Small bar area with larger dining. Traditional looking and warm atmosphere of diners. With a nice open fire to create a homely feel. British Thai food pubs can often have a bad reputation as being confused. Not the case here! The Thai food was plentiful and very authentic. Really enjoyed... More
