People lovely. Food poor quality in terms of ingredients. No beer on pump. Room spacious n clean but bed very very creaky. Beautiful building and location which has potential to be really fab. Great location for touring rest of area

After seeing previous two reviews and had a booking for 28th Dec, called the Black Bull (01434 230322). Advised by temporary tenant that the previous owners had left and the Black Bull was closed as had no heating or water, so certainly not open for guests. Disappointing that at short notice now trying to find accomodation for christmas week.

I booked a 3 night stay at this hotel on a Groupon deal. After travelling 75 miles I arrived there this afternoon at 2.45 pm to find the place locked and shuttered with notices on the window stating that the premises were protected by Mitie Security Company. The place was obviously empty and I called across the road to the... More

Room was shabby but very comfortable. Worth what we paid on Wowcher, Food was delicious and locally sourced. took home the sausages from the Farm shop next door they are that local. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Definitely needs money spending on decor but if you looked beyond that to the history of the building, the service provided by... More

I suppose as it was a groupon offer, the arguement is we got what we paid for ?. Defeats the whole point of groupon and other internet promotions surely ? Does groupon lower both customer expectation and hotelier effort ? So many questions and no answers. Staff very friendly and helpul. Its a pub, and there is provision for bed... More

Not very promising from the front when we arrived. Welcome fine and room was actually the pub flat so quite large. Looked promising. Then it all went downhill. Room was dark with emphasis on purple decor. Dust and cobwebs everywhere. Freezing cold with radiators that put out no heat. The fan heater in the lounge was terribly noisy. Festooned with... More

They are very helpful and gave us information on what to see around the area. Amazing food especially Tinas chocolate sensation to die for. Had a great time and planning our next trip back as this is quite central to see different areas
