Lovely Staff, Nice Premises. Had the the Lamb shoulder, very nice but not a large portion of meat. Mother and Partner loved their Sea Bass. £82 for 3 mains, desserts and a few drinks and coffee. Great ambiance. Would visit again.

Teresa, Gareth and their staff made our special day extra special. Once we had left all the arranging of the drinks and canapes at the Music Hall (our wedding venue) and the details of the meals and drinks for the wedding breakfast at the golden Cross we knew we could forget about the stressful part of the wedding and just...

We stayed in room 3 which was beautifully decorated and very compact with the bed against the wall - but for 1 night was fine. The wet room was spacious and the toiletries and towels were good quality. The cafetiere and ground coffee was also a nice touch. The lighting in the room was very subdued and the small window...

We enjoyed a superb Sunday lunch at this unusual hotel. Very old property, characterful building with comfortable interior almost in a chic coffee shop style. Seriously sophisticated menu available, but chose the Sunday Roast which was delicious. Children happy with smaller portions of an Italian dish. Good service, relaxed atmosphere. Well recommended.

Beautiful inside and out, friendly staff, good selection of drinks and food. Fun hanging chairs in the garden! I would recommend it for good and bad weather as the restaurant has lovely soft furnishings!

We stopped here for one night on our way back to Ireland. We arrived about 5pm and we were welcomed by our male host/landlord. We were shown to room 11 on the first floor. One of the things you need to be aware of is that this is a very old building and I suspect a listed building. I think... More

Very picturesque pub with accommodation above. Obviously access is up steep stairs given the age of the building, which would restrict some visitors (thankfully not me). The attitude of the owners made me feel very much welcome & the commitment to good food made dining a pleasure. Parking of necessity was not easy, but that was only to be expected... More
