We were very impressed with our meal the food was of high quality and reasonably priced. All staff and management were very polite and accommodating. We lost track of time and were looked after very well ! Thanks for a great evening.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable with lots of oak beams. Plenty of hangers in the wardrobe and plenty of drawer space. The bed was very comfortable. Ensuite more than adequate. The food was good value for money.Plenty of car parking. Only slight drawback is that the road is quite noisy but we... More

This charming inn is very good with the potential to be great. The staff are the best I have encountered anywhere. The food is high quality and value for money. Just a few minuses...no chambermaid service on one day of our stay, and one room light not working. Also the room lights are too dim to allow reading easily after... More

Our room was right upstairs with wooden beams and sloping floors. Very nice bathroom and very comfortable bed. The only downside is the road right outside - very noisy in the day-time but quietens down at night and we were not disturbed by traffic. Very friendly helpful staff. Excellent food in the evenings but the breakfasts were slightly lacking in... More

We called into the Ram early evening, about 5.30 for something to eat. We were greeted and seated by a lovely girl. She took our drink order and served us quickly. We ordered our food and it came reasonably quickly. It was possibly the worst meal we have ever eaten. I had a vegetarian suet pudding/pie. The pastry was thick... More

It started with an extremely friendly welcome and then a delightful bedroom which was spotless and perfect. Mine host (and wife) couldn't do enough for us, and the waitresses were extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We hit upon a steak night - wonderful - and the restaurant was packed. We 4 all had steak, ranging from... More

Slow service, sticky tables, adequate if unadventurous food, sticky tables, chaotic checkout, shabby exterior and car-park, sticky tables - sorry to go on about them, but our party of 11 all commented on the tables, which were very, very sticky.

My mum and I met some friends here for lunch one Monday. When we arrived our friends were already seated so we naturally joined them, we were quickly bought menus, that's where the speed ended. A waiter then came over to ask if we'd ordered drinks, our friends had,, we had not. He then asked if we were ready to... More

Having not been to the Ram since John Trafford ruled the roast, I was somewhat dubious after reading the trip advisor comments. We arrived to a near empty car park which was not a good sign, the empty restaurant also added to our apprehension. Othe guests did arrive after a short time, but still not anywhere near full, this element... More

We visited this Friday, and stopped because it looked nice from the outside. We weeny disappointed. Though must admit we didn't have hot dinners so can't give a recommendation about those. However, based on what we had (bloomer sandwiches and ciabatta rolls) it was really really nice and huge portions too. I think we will make this a regular stop... More
