Stayed for 2 days for my sisters birthday. Coming from Canada the staff was unbelievably accommodating to my timetable of arrival. The food was fantastic as well as affordable and the grounds were excellent for a nice walk or to enjoy a pint in the fresh air. Comfortable and clean rooms, great locals and staff that are out of this... More

I have stayed here a few times in the past to visit a friend and each time I have been, there has been a deterioration in standards. On my most recent visit, I stayed for two nights (bed and breakfast) and had dinner one night. The front of house bar area is still tidy and they serve a good range... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for the points you have risen. On the rare occasions that a party continues after midnight we do try to limit the noise for the rest of our guests and are disappointed that on this occasion we seem not to have succeeded. Our rooms are currently in the proccess... More

I grew up near the Furze Bush and went there all the time because we knew we'd get good food and friendly and relaxing service/ atmosphere. The last two visits (one about 3 years ago and one about 2 weeks ago) were completely different. On both occasions we were just there for drinks and the bar staff were really unfriendly/unwelcoming... More

We went down to the country to meet with old school chums I had not seen in 45 years. Very warm welcome & reception from the staff. We were booked into a wonderful large room, with an equally large bathroom - complete with modern shower and a claw foot bath tub! We then went down had drinks with our friends,... More

Over the last 2 years, I have visited the Furze Bush on about 6 occasions. Each time the welcome - particularly from the landlord, has been less than welcome - unless he seemingly knows you. Easy requests such as a glas of ice are met with a curt response, the reason being that 'it's more glasses to clear away'. When... More

We stayed a few weekends ago and I hesitate to write being in the same industry. Our welcome was warm and coffee in the lovely garden and sunshine was wonderful. From then on it was downhill. The bedroom was tiny for two although would have been adequate had the bathroom been clean, the carpet was okay but tired and crockery... More

This country inn was set in a lovely garden with an old fashioned public bar and good large restaurant. Five of us ate there on two evenings in July and enjoyed it very much. My husband and I stayed for two nights in a very comfortable room en suite.
