          Dropped in for a pub feed and a couple of ales and was astonished by the quality of the food. It was far and away the best meal we had during a 4 week tour of England and Wales. Beef and Ale pie and their...More

          We had a great lunch after a two and a half hour walk. We all hoped that the Giants rest would do a quality ploughman's lunch and they surpassed our expectations. It was also extremely reasonably priced. We couldn't recommend this more!

          More than one visit over a few years. Good local brewery beer, Long Man, excellent food choices for lunch and inner menu, reasonably priced. Pub parking limited. Combine with a walk (uphill) to Long Man of Wilmington landscape sculpture. Recommended.
