We went as a works outing for xmas and had a 4 course meal. Every one of us said that the food was way better than anyone would have expected for only £20 a head. Ive been before and the foods always Been excellent, but the value for money blew us away this time. Excellent.

We were visiting Blackpool on a recent Saturday, with a view to popping into Lake Windermere the following day. We found this Bed and Breakfast on Hotels.com paying £56 for the night. As other reviewers have noted, it's not a B&B in the traditional sense, which isn't a bad thing in our opinion. It's basically a hotel over a pub.... More

The portions were huge so we felt over faced with food but otherwise it was OK. The staff very friendly and offered good service. The wine selection as a little limited. Very handy for the B&B we were staying at.

We do appreciate the point about the portions being large, but are happy to cater for individual needs if asked. Our chef works on the basis that he wants to give quality and value; and we find that over... More
