The single room is very tired looking and needs attention. I can cope with dated decor but it would be simple and inexpensive to provide a decent (non lumpy) bed and a new (non sticky) carpet. I got several bites on the lower leg by something during my stay. The plumbing in this room was interesting and completing my shower... More

A warm welcome. It is a great friendly pub. Room was fine, bathroom small but it does the job. Lovely filling breakfast. Enjoyable stay will visit again. Halstead is an interesting town and plenty to do locally

The place was awful. I arrived to find they did not know I was coming as the company I booked through hadn't given my details. When I arrived at my room the window had been left open all day so it was freezing. This was probably trying to get rid of the smell of toilets that drifted down the corridor!... More

Hello, Thank you for posting your review, we are always interested to hear your views, whether good, or on this occasion bad. It's difficult to be prepared for guests if there has been an unfortunate lack of communication from the room booking sites. Even so, it seems that we missed the opportunity to turn the situation around on that occasion... More

When we arrived I could not believe that other reviewers had given this place an average rating. We were shown to a dingy room with only half the light bulbs working and black mould around the bath. When my husband reported the kettle was missing he was told that the previous people must have stolen it (classy) - when they... More

This is an old English pub as they use to be, small, cosy and welcoming, and situated just a few minutes stroll from Halstead town centre, (which is delightful). Yes, the rooms are basic but everything was spotless. The bed was comfortable and the water hot, only minor niggle was there was no wardrobe in the room. Plenty of drawer... More
