Stayed with a large group & looked after very well. Externally the building looks like a just another pub with a accommodation annexe next door. Internally it is a pub, looking a bit tired, with a larger restaurant area upstairs. The food is very very good & reasonably priced too. Does get busy at times so best to book ahead.... More

The hotel block stands alongside the pub where meals are served. We have stayed here many times when visiting our grandchildren. We are always warmly welcomed and all staff are very friendly even when we are still chatting in the bar late in the evening and are the only ones left. The problem is that their wines by the glass... More

Food is excellent . Sometimes it's difficult to eat as they don't always have availability ( this has happened a lot ) this is frustrating as they have another floor above that could be opened . I have never ever had a bad meal & I eat here approx once per week .

Helpful staff, amazing food, generous proportions and some of the tastiest vegetarian pies I've eaten. My family got the curry and rated it over our local indian restaurant. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Very comfortable stay, room immaculately clean and handy restaurant next door providing a hearty breakfast each morning. Also great and convenient for an evening meal - no need to search the area for a suitable restaurant. Staff very pleasant and helpful. All in... More

Shown to room by one of the barstaff, and given the usual spiel with breakfast between 7 and 9am. Decided to eat in restaurant/bar, shown to a table by the fire exit. Messed up the order for starters with... More

I used to eat here on a regular basis but the last occasion was not good. We went for Sunday lunch and waited for a table, not a problem as we are used to this but it does become very cramped in the small bar area, the Sunday lunch arrived quickly but the meat was cold, we couldn't get the...
