Gastro Pub
Dining at the Pandora is a real treat. Not only is food served all day, but you have lots of choices where to eat it too! Inside, the ground floor of the pub has plenty of cosy nooks and corners with plenty of secluded areas for you to dine. Outside you can eat at tables overlooking the water’s edge, or dine ‘on the water’ itself – seated on our pontoon. Back inside, the Upper Deck dining room is a beautiful vaulted space that can accommodate larger groups and parties.
The Pandora Inn has an extensive award-winning menu that changes with the seasons. We have a specials board that changes daily and always features fresh, local fish. Whether you want a sandwich, a light bite or the full-three courses, you’ll find something to whet your appetite.

    What a fantastic historic place to eat. Food and service was second to non. Shame people don't read the parking situation and feel they have a right to dump there cars incorrectly and not on the car park . If you are ever in the area please visit and enjoy the food

    The food and service were great. However it was unfortunate to find a large pebble in my food (Korean chicken burger). I did point it out to the waitress and she apologised and said she would inform the kitchen. I was expected to be offered a small refund or a free drink but nothing happened. Being British we put up with these things!

    What a great find. We had a great meal in a lovely setting, my only criticism was that we seemed to have been left towards the end of the meal, almost as if we had been forgotten. Apart from that it was a very pleasurable meal experience.

    On arrival was not given the ground floor dining as per my request so ended up on a poly table being the only one now left downstairs. My glass had lipstick marks on it. The plates were cold (“someone forgot to heat them up” we were told) Didn’t like the potatoes as they had an oily taste and weren’t good roast potatoes. There was plenty of food and good selection of vegetables but the plates were quite small.

    Although we enjoyed our evening ... its a shame you do not have more of a choice for vegetarians We did look at the menu before booking,but had hoped there might have been more vegetarian Main options on the board I wouldn't recommend to friends if they are vegetarian

    We have been coming to the Pandora Inn for many years when on holiday. It’s the sort of place you can be yourself, relaxed, and at ease with fellow diners. It has remained the same and never disappointed. Expect a wonderful dining experience with low beams , open fires, nooks and crannies to hide away and perhaps bump into Jack Sparrow. Tuck into home cooked Sunday roasts (best roasties ever). Moreish memorable fish pie. Even cream tea on the outside floating pontoon is just wonderful. A quirky gem - in fact a treasure to behold.

    Location food and service fantastic, just don’t expect to park, no spaces for the numbers it caters for. I had to pay a no show deposit, couldn’t park and ended up on a grass verge a mile away up an incredibly steep hill, I had no other choice due to the deposit. Nobody with a walking issue would manage it.

    We had the carvery. It was ok. If you told me that I was at a well known carvery food chain I’d have believed you. Plenty to eat though. Main negative for us was service which was weak. Waiting staff didn’t really seem to understand that they, not us, not the building, not the history etc set the tone. Carvery server seemed to not to want to be there!’ It was what it was’ is how we summed it up. Certainly satisfactory, but not memorable.
