This is a great New Year experience as we were made to feel very welcome by Brian and Anne and all their staff. The dinner was excellent (with very good selection of food) and the piper was enjoyable, but maybe a bit long. We had good weather again for midnight out in the square with church bells, music and fireworks,... More

We have just returned from an impromptu night at the Dog and Bear. I booked it just a few days before, just looking for a nice night out somewhere local, it's 25 minutes from where we live. I realised when reading the reviews that it was a dog friendly hotel, therefore organised to take our small dog Ellie, at a... More

My first impressions was how nice the welcome was, laid back and friendly just the way it should be. The room was of adequate size for me and my mother, tea/coffee facilities and equipped with a trouser press. Very Cosy room, warm, beds comfortable. The bathroom could have been a little updated, the tap in the sink ( hot water... More

Second stay just as good as the first. The best steak and ale pie ever! Friendly staff and nothing too much trouble. Comfortable, spotless rooms with everything you could want. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the area.

We stayed there for a few days and what surprised us all along was the extreme friendliness of all the staff and the direction. There was not a request they didn't try to satisfy, always with a smile. The room was spacious, not very bright though, more lights would be appreciated. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was nice... More

Our room was made the priority when being cleaned so we could get in there early, get changed and leave without any stress or worry. Taxi numbers were also found for us and the service we received at... More

Good, strong tea, lovely warm scone and a generous helping of good quality jam. We really liked the atmoshere in the bar: dogs and... More
