Business overview

Good Food at reasonable prices, with an excellent atmosphere and a service that you cant get anywhere else.

The Stocks Inn gets its name from the old village stocks that were situated just outside the building and remain to this day. It is rumoured they were installed next to the pub in order for the bar maids to provide water for the people being incarcerated in the stocks, sometimes for days at a time. Additionally, the local smuggler Isaac Gulliver was believed to have stashed his illegal contraband in the cellar beneath the pub.

First choice every time !

Really don't know where the negative reviewer went! This is our favourite place to eat - the food is always delicious and the staff couldn't be more accommodating of special diets.

Service? What service?

We went for lunch yesterday and had a really disappointing meal! We felt completely ignored and had to ask for everything twice - the drinks, water and even the bill! When eventually our drinks arrived, at least 30 minutes after being seated, the main course came at the same time! The plates and the food the food were so hot that it was obviously that they had been placed under a re - heating lamp. The gravy was grimy and thick accompanied by a few freshly steamed vegetables and soggy parmentier potatoes. Upon mentioning our disappointment, we were talked down and told that as far as they were concerned, everything had been as it should be. Needless to say, we shan't ever be returning!!
