The room was clean and tidy with all of the simple things that one needs for a couple of nights stay. The bed was on wheels and moved around all night which was kinda annoying. The staff were helpful and friendly and the food in the pub was excellent.

Stayed here for 1 night as we were attending a family party. Hopefully our room is about to be renovated as it really shouldn't be stayed in until it is. There was mould on the walls in the bathroom. the bathroom fan was so noisy, the toilet and bath were stained, the ceilings were stained, there were cobwebs in an... More

I stayed here for four nights on a business trip and found the accommodation clean, warm and comfortable. The room was in the lodge at the rear of the bar/restaurant and had a newly fitted shower room which I was told was the start of a full refurbishment of the lodge. The guys who run the place couldn't have been... More

Had a fantastic lunch today we were recommend the beef roast and it's one of the best I've tasted this year. Spot on. If you like beef try it, along with the house red by the glass a full bodied yet refreshingly light . The chicken burger was enjoyed by my daughter.

Stayed here previously and though it was ok but recently stopped off at the axe & compass overnight in one of their quaint lodge/hotel rooms. We met up with a number of friends and decided to spend the evening having dinner and drinks in the pub/restaurant. What can I say, got talking to the two new owners Jake and Ryan... More

I don't wish to describe all the things wrong with this accommodation but if you are looking for somewhere clean and welcoming this is not the place for you. There is nowhere to hang your clothes in the wardrobe as it has a fridge in it where you will find your breakfast (such as it is) The only reason I... More

We stayed here over Easter as a stop over on a charity bicycle ride. The rooms are very dated & need an over haul. We paid £45 for a double room for the night, however, the TV wouldn't work so we were refunded some. The bathroom was especially old, the fan was very noisy, towels grubby & old & the... More

I booked two rooms, for me and a work mate, then i read the reviews, and started to wish I had not, but am glad I did. What makes people write such false reviews is beyond me, especially the long winded one, the rooms are clean, the owner welcoming and friendly, fridge in the room, the only down side which... More
