We were quite disappointed with The Willows which looked old & quirky from the outside but lacked this on the inside which looked dated rather than old? The room was in a chalet block outside the back of the main building and was a decent size apart from the bathroom, lacked character and could do with some updating and didn't... More

Only stayed for one night as we were walking the Peddars Way. The accommodation was satisfactory. The food was unexpectedly good, both the evening meal in the bar and the breakfast. Staff very friendly and efficient.

At first a little disappointed by the rather shabby, tired decor - the place needs a little more money spent on it - but our room and (tiny) en suite were spotlessly clean. Generous breakfast with lots of good coffee included in the price of room. Staff were very kind and welcoming, and dinner... More

Delightfully presented & prepared dinner in the restaurant, comfortable quiet en-suite room charmingly decorated with rose petals and bubbly, excellent breakfast. The Willow House excelled that evening confirming them as our favourite 'local': they consistently offer tasty interesting modern... More

We wanted a last-minute overnight stay and booked The Willow House. Very pleased to have found this 12 hours before travelling. Our room was of a generous size with very comfortable beds. We ate in the restaurant in the evening, excellent food. It was a bit of a wait as everything was cooked from scratch, but we were in no... More

Really tasty food and friendly staff, comfy clean rooms and loads of character. A proper homely pub with a diverse menu and no snootiness. A gem, will definitely visit again and recommend to friends, especially those with dogs.

Year and a half since last visiting and it's still great. Nothing grand or pretentious, not a city smart setup, but cosy and friendly where nothing is a problem and everything works or can be accommodated. Main thing for me is the food is superb, by any standard, and like everything else it comes with a smile. Such an refresher... More
