This pub is now run by Adam and Andrew who took over earlier this year, they've brought a tired pub back to life and you will always find a heartwarming welcome, a cheery chat and a wonderful atmosphere in this pub...they keep keg and draught beers and are now serving meals which are of a high quality and very reasonably priced, also their tasty roast dinner is served all day on a sunday and consists of a selection of extremely tender meats and locally bought fresh vegetables...well worth a visit...try it, i'm sure you won't be disappointed...they are also now taking bookings for christmas parties and christmas day lunch...oh and the phone number you have on this site is incorrect...they now have a land line and as soon as i am able to obtain it i will post to the site...

The food here was the worst pub food we have had in many years. We ordered:

fish and chips - this was fine.
Lam shank - normally shank meat falls off the bone. In this case, it was cooked so badly that I needed a steak knife to get the meat off it, and the meat was really tough. I couldn't work out whether it was undercooked or cooked too fast, but it was very poor.
Salmon with risotto - the salmon was small and very overcooked, shrivelled and dry. the risotto! Was more like dried up Indian pliau rice, it definately was not risoto.

For desert we ordered treacle tart and ice cream - and had to retuen the tarts as they were all cold! Who ever serves cold treacle tart!

I would avoid this pub for food, it was truelly dreadful.

Most of what i want to say has been said already. The nice builing, though the interior is a bit twee - it has a fantasic fireplace and both beer and naval memorabilia - not a shock, considering the pub is named after the famous 18th century admiral. Has a nice beer garden

Beer was excellent and with excellent choices. Hardy & Hansons Old Trip (which is what i had), Everards Sunchaser, Black Shhep, Old Spekky, Deuchars IPA, Timothy Taylor Landlord and Adnams Explorer. No MILD. Good choice of lagers too for those that like stuff.

After all this, a guy still ordered John Smiths!

Will go more often i think

The warmest of welcomes, excellent service in a relaxed atmosphere with the highest levels of professionalism from the staff is what I have found at The Admiral Rodney.
A true testament to the quality of the place is that the locals can all give you a run down of the menu whilst keeping you informed of any changes of ingredients to your favourites; one of my lads was told that his fishcakes were now salmon for a change by the young lady who lives over the road. Yes, the locals eat here as well.
I've had steaks, breakfasts, gammon, desserts, pies, fish and everything inbetween (I love eating out) and cannot fault anything I've tried. The chef(s) will happily alter the menu for your own particular preference as everything is prepared and cooked freshly.
The environment is clean and welcoming and the landlord has a killer sense of humour that keeps the drinkers entertained all night.
On the subject of drinking, there is usually a good mix of ales and an interesting quirk of this pub is that a running total of emptied casks is kept on a blackboard in the gent's.
I might have to move house to make this inn my local. Enjoy!
