I visited with my wife this previous weekend. I was served by two very lovely young ladies called Jess and Alice, "pad". The two girls were delightful and made our meal very special by going that further mile. They recommended wine, deserts, and were so informative. The food was excellent. Cannot emphasize enough! Brilliant. Will be returning...

Richie and Charlotte were our caterers for our wedding earlier in the year, the food was so great we had to visit their pub The Bladebone for seconds. The sausages are delicious, especially when coated in Honey & Mustard dip. All the food is finished to a high standard, Richie and his team take pride in their food and it... More

It really is not clear what this place is. Is it a pub or a restaurant. The difficulty is that it's neither. It's very odd . It's set out as a restaurant but is actually a pub so the people next you might just be visiting for a drink and to read a newspaper . The tables surround the bar... More

Sine the Bladebone has reopened it has gone from strength to strength - consistency is key, but at the moment they are riding high! So good to fine somewhere local that serves such fine food.

This is lovely country pub/restaurant with charming, attentive staff and on a wet and cold Tuesday evening in November it was well patronised - and no wonder with such an interesting menu, delicious fresh ingredients and a warm atmosphere. We will return!

Interesting and varied menu. The scallops gruyere starter had lovely flavours, but was tiny, the smallest scallops ever seen. The fillet of salmon had beautiful crispy skin, resulting in being slightly overdone and a little dry. Chicken breast in cheese & truffle sauce with macaroni was very good and different. Good local beers available, but a vastly overpriced wine list.... More

On a lovely sunny day hopped onto our Harley Davidson road king and took a ride out into the country to have lunch at the Bladebone pub. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the pub has a light airy feel to the decor in the summer and I am told a roaring fire in the winter. We can strongly... More

We visited as a family. We had a very, very good Sunday Roast - probably one of the best ever in a pub/restaurant. Well Done Bladebone,a great local pub with reliable great food.
