Me and the wife chose to stay here again to enjoy the RWC2015 after staying here for one of the World Cup games last year. Great staff, Great food, Great Drinks, Great Room and Great Breakfast! We are back next Saturday for the next game and if a room becomes available the next game after that on the 3rd.

A fantastic pub, simple as that. No matter how busy it is service is excellent. The manageress keeps a great pint and the atmosphere is always spot on. It also does a great breakfast. I just love the place.

They all couldn't believe the value of what they paid for what they got! The breakfast was awesome and they easily... More
