We visited 3 times on a recent holiday, lovely staff who couldn’t do enough to help, great food and drink and a fantastic location.
What more could you ask for?

Well below standard, blame it on COVID but this inn will no longer feature on our must visit list.
We all know and appreciate the problems that COVID has caused, and we all want to do our bit to get things back to normal, but slow service and a lack of manners will make this an uphill struggle for the Beaver Inn, and if you are not careful will deter customers from returning.
From placing our order to receipt, took one hour, for sandwiches, unbelievable, the staff appeared to lack knowledge of what was available our waiter returned several times to explain what was and what wasn’t available, in the end we had waited so long ( one hour) that we just accepted what was brought to the table.
Based on previous visits this was not the way service had been in the past.

Firstly let me please apologise for your poor experience and I do understand that it is easy to pass the buck onto Covid but in regards to staff training, the only staff who returned from furlough were experienced core staff members... Opening up outside in April was a risk for us , we were back at work after 4 months off, on a brand new menu with a brand new ordering system ... We had to make sure we were wary of stock levels because a few days rain could mean having to dispose of fresh produce, similarly our staff levels were difficult to control for the same reason (especially as the 3+ forecast reports we were constantly checking all seemed to say different or be totally inaccurate!)
Thankfully that most difficult period has ended and we are now getting back to some kind of normality we are getting back into the swing and as you may have seen received some lovely reviews since... I am a little disappointed that this situation wasn't brought to our attention until this negative review but hope that you might return to give us another chance in the near future.

Had an early evening meal which was most enjoyable .Friendly efficient service even being fairly full . Only slight annoyance which we did not notice till later as I paid the bill quickly, we had been charged for two drinks which we never had!

Lovely welcoming staff, we hadn’t booked but they kindly found us a table, we both had the Beaver burger which was incredibly tasty. So nice to be able to eat indoors again especially as it was blowing a hooley outside, lovely to look out at the stunning view.
