Renamed in part to the Aidensfield Arms in a bid to woo Nick Berry Fans.

Mental Busy. Miserable Staff. Terrible Black Sheep beer in awful condition.

Think I'm exaggerating? Have a look at tripadvisor!

This has to be the most unfriendly pub we have ever visited! We were standing at the side of the bar waiting to be served and very abrubtly the bar maid said, "stand in front of the bar, not in the corridor". Then the landlord said, "the family room is there", pointing at a room at the side of the pub. Both were really abrupt, rude, unfriendly and treated us like third class citizens. And to cap it all the prices!!! I agree with other reviewers if it hadn't been for Heartbeat, they'd be history by now. Message to the's the tourists that keep you in business, not the locals!

It was 15 years ago last time we were in here just as it was then very tired now If heartbeat had not been filmed her this one and all the other business would have been closed now. Found the staff not friendly and if it was not for the trips they would be unemployed they want to think about that. AND MAKE PEOPLE WELCOME
