An excellent value hotel with friendly staff and reasonably priced food. Room was adequate, if a little tired but clean and had a good view. Good breakfast cooked to order. Parking on site. Would stay again.

Having stayed at the Commodore once again we were not disappointed. I did mention to the manager that it was a shame that they were let down by Old English Inns on there once again very tired decor, to my surprise he informed us that at long last they were to get a refurbishment in May of this year.

needs decorating and some TLC. Dogs allowed in the bar /dining area which is ok unless you are allergic to them. People are eating in the same area. Food was served on hot plates which is good and was reasonably priced

Friendly staff we use commodore a lot when on special offer. Not good value other wise. Rooms and plumbing tired to say the least. Pub good atmosphere. Parking can be an issue. But we get on well with staff and they are always welcoming.

The atmosphere was electric all night with fantastic entertainment by a local duo who were happy to play requests and were outstanding. There was a lovely buffet laid... More

Justin (the new landlord) is running a very happy ship here. Everyone's smiling again, the service is excellent and the food is great value for money and better than other pub chains. they seem to put an extra effort in. Try the Chicken sizzler with tortillas, tastes as good as it smells, and wow the Ultimate Burger is fantastic! Wine... More
