The landlord here has run this pub for 20 years...... which is why he doesn't know that being rude to customers is no longer an acceptable pastime. Serving the crappiest selection of overpriced slush, as beer and wine, is no longer acceptable. Warming up last nights pie with oven chips....is outrageous, and standing behind the bar munching on a greasy... More

we ate here tonight, wanting to give the local pub a try in the hope that it would come up trumps. The 16oz steak was in sevderal pieces, overcooked and dry, the chilli was reasonable but the knickerbocker glories tasted like a dusty attic and the wine list was non existant - I didn't know whether I was drinking fermented...

in all my years I have never stayed in such a horrible place I would sooner sleep in the middle of a ploughed field being eaten alive by Peruvian killer ants, the best thing about this place is the pub opposite. tnek

However,Bob, if you read this for goodness sake get a decent mattress for the double bed.It was so noisy as to be unbelievable. Don't spoil the ship for a pennyworth... More

We took two rooms here one for us and for our kids, with a popup bed so all three could share the room. My overall impression was that it needs someone to take better care of the housekeeping. There was an untidy pile of wood at the back of the car park and the air of shabbiness follows you in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding locally. Rooms were a good size and clean and the en suite bathrooms were fine. I have never before stayed anywhere where the tea/coffee facilities were strictly timed and only offered in paper cups. Odd. The breakfast service was a little odd too. Despite coming downstairs a little... More

My friend and I stayed for three nights. This is a homely hotel and bar, We were made very welcome - Bob picked us up from the station and his son dropped us back there on our return, a really first class service. The breakfast was delicious and kept us going the whole day. Also, we had two evening meals... More
