The room was nice enough, decent sized room, bed and could move in the shower. Breakfast was the usual panic about what do vegans eat but I was happy with my plate - basically everything but the meat :0-) Staff were friendly and laid back.

Not a frequent visitor, but when we go you can always rely on excellent food, and service. We were a party of 6, and chose 5 different meals between us, all the meals looked appetising, I could have eaten either one of them. Good food, good service, reasonable prices, and good beer what more do you want.

By chance called into the Riflemans on Saturday 20/10/12, the hosts were very welcoming and the pub had a lovely atmosphere, you can enjoy a pint in front of the fire or use the restaurant next door which served very high class home cooked traditional food. Accomodation is available on site and looking forward to using these on my next... More
