We booked on a recommendation a double and twin room for a family funeral nearby. There was a warm welcome after a long car journey, the public car park was conveniently next door because the hotel's was full with people having lunch, but we got a space later.

We enjoyed an evening at the Folk Club in a separate room in the back courtyard, the room was lovely, wooden beams, small bar, friendly service. The People running the Folk club made us feel very welcome, the folk music excellent, would recommend and would go again and again.

downsides... - room was very hot even with windows open - bath not very big and not that pleasant having the shower curtain hanging by your head when you're in it - couldn't open bathroom window - a bit annoying having to keep typing code for main door in, especially when carrying luggage etc. - small towels upsides... - lovely...

Had a lovely meal here with work colleagues. Watch out though as portion sizes are rather large! We all had starters and were nearly full - duck wrap was lovely. Fillet steak main was cooked perfectly and tasted yummy. Sadly no room for dessert!

The short break was most enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and always on hand. The rooms were adequate and at a reasonable price. The restaurant had a varied menu at a good price. The breakfast menu was also great. If you are looking for a place to stay I can recommend The Old Bull Inn.

Quick one night stay as we were in the area for a friend's birthday party. Friendly, helpful staff; warm welcome when we arrived. On site car park, with further public car park immediately adjacent. Our room was small and you had to mind your head as approached the door, but this is an old coaching inn, so you can forgive... More

Our room (with a four poster bed) was large and nicely furnished.....pipes were a tad noisy in the bathroom but the noise didn't go on for long. Great breakfast, with... More

Rooms vary but all are lovely though some are a tad small - but hey - its and old pub! Conference facilities were spot on. The bar was excellent... More
