We stayed here for 2 nights (Mon - Tues). Nice pub with good local ale, friendly staff and the breakfast were particularly good. The cost was £80 Mon & £85 Tues very expensive for a pub. The rooms were clean and tidy but if you're going to stay here don't bring your cat; no room to swing it. One person... More

We stayed here for one night over the bank holiday weekend. The location was fab - very central but not noisy. Food wonderful, not cheap but good quality. Service great too (particularly the girl serving food/breakfasts) nothing was too much trouble. Room small but had everything we needed. Would stay again.

Nice friendly welcome, great location, lovely breakfast (although beans went missing on morning 2) and good food. Room was small but perfectly adequate. Only 2 small things I would change, better pillows and move the shelf over the sink. We stayed in rm 5, I thought it would be noisey being right over the bar, but it was fine. Parking... More
