    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.

    Enjoyed a fabulous meal at this gem of a place this weekend. The food was divine, service was excellent and the atmosphere perfect. Would highly recommend. It's set in beautiful countryside so an ideal place to start or end a country walk.
