Review on The Falling Stone

The village is pronounced 'Twing' although not everyone agrees on this, and this brick-built pub (formerly the Rampant Horse) gets its unlikely name from a meteorite which plummeted from the skies and landed in these parts many moons ago. Situated in the northern reaches of the East Riding, some eight miles from Driffield and Bridlington, it still operates as a local watering hole and is now famous for its draught beers from the Wold Top Brewery (a micro-outfit operating from a farm a few miles away).

Inside, the place divides up between a traditional bar done out in classic style and a more modern, conservatory-style dining area decorated with pictures of street scenes. The food runs from dyed-in-the-wool pub grub (homemade soups, gammon and eggs, steaks, bread-and-butter pudding) to more upbeat specials - perhaps crispy duck pancakes, baked crab with chilli and herbs, chicken breast stuffed with Mozzarella and sun-dried tomato, and Malteser parfait.

After visiting The Falling Stone, please let us know which pronunciation of Thwing gets more smiles.

    Great evening, time after time

    We had heard about the falling stone from a friend of ours, it's a small boutique style gastro pub in the tiny little village of Thwing, about 6 miles from Bridlington.

    We first visited this pub in November last year and have been going regularly ever since.

    The food is fantastic, a great example of the English gastro pub niche, in a charming and simple setting, but it is not just the food that has compelled me to write this review, on two separate occasions our service has been truly exceptional, far and away beyond the call of duty.

    It has turned 'a meal' into 'an evening' , and 'a night out' into an event to be remembered.
