Description: Hello there! The Kicking Donkey is an elegant yet relaxed place to come and drink, eat and meet with friends and family. It's a classic country pub with bags of character, boasting a selection of cracking real ales and stunning wines, and has shelves crammed with gins, rums and single malts. On sunny days, there's a lovely south facing beer garden to soak up the rays. When things get a little chilly, there are three log fires to cosy up to, and little corners to lose yourself in for the afternoon with a paper. We are now fully open with a brilliant seasonal menu. Matt and the team can't wait to welcome you.

This pub is a really nice mix of classy and casual with a lot of nice touches like small vases of wildflowers and shelves of books. The food is great and there is a really good choice.

Called to the Kicking Donkey with my wife for Sunday Dinner.
On our arrival the staff were starting a Barbecue of which a menu was presented to us.
We decided to have a two course meal which was very nice and very tasty.
We moved tables due to the heat outside and finished our meals inside the Pub.
Lovely place to eat and the owners/staff are very friendly and welcoming.

We visited here today with our dog. We were made to feel really welcome and the food was beautiful and extremely tasty.
We could tell that the ingredients had been well sourced and were of a high quality. Pork Belly starter with fresh chillis and pea purée was really tender, Gammon roast dinner very tasty and the battered Haddock and chips, again really fresh and tasty.
It’s obvious time is taken over preparation and cooking and the ingredients are freshly prepared.
Definitely be returning.
