A quick stop with our three kids on way back down the country uncovered this little gem. Amazing 2-bed cottage adjoining the pub gave us all we hoped for. No problem putting a 3rd bed into the kids room. Checking in was simple and friendly. Pub serves amazing food with great service. Seems very popular with the locals and no... More

We booked through Laterooms for a long weekend. The room was of a very high standard, we got a garden room which was fantastic for the dog with a garden at the back. We ate at the pub one night, and had a delicious meal. Prices are higher than some pubs, but the steak and gammon were cooked to our... More

I stayed here with three friends recently. We only stayed one night but would highly recommend staying. The room was fantastic value ( family room £109) for that price we weren't expecting the luxury that we got! The bathroom was amazing! Our evening meal was very good ( not the cheapest) but very high quality food. The burger was the... More

Firstly their main website is misleading. It reads as if premier rooms have bath included in price yet when you book with a bath you have to pay an additional £10.00. Also before booking I had telephoned to check the premier room price included bath and was told it did. However, once the booking went through it showed we had... More

I cannot for the life of me understand what people have to complain about!!!! This is a fantastic inn with rooms, not a hotel. We have always received a warm welcome from the staff and found the accommodation to a very high standard. It is an old coaching inn with beams and low ceilings but the rooms and bathrooms are...

Used this lovely old inn as a stopover from wales to Edinburgh. Having read previous reviews I telephoned ahead to request a room with good headroom as I'm quite tall. The reception staff were very helpful and even agreed the b&b price offered online.The room was very nice, was nicely decorated and a very comfortable bed. The management seemed to... More

We stayed here for one night on the way from York to the Lake District and found it very good. The room was fitted out and decorated to a standard well above most inns. Remember it is NOT actually a hotel, so there is a little noise from the pub business, but less than you might expect - and far... More

We were staying in a cottage near by and spotted this on the way past, thought we would check it out for a drink first and take the dogs. Great place to sit in the sun and also great for doggie people, water out front. Staff all young and very uninterested in people, we had a look at the menu... More

We treated ourselves to the 2 bedroom cottage on the end of the terrace. Whilst self catering is fine, we elected to order our meals from the pub and have them delivered to our front door when they were ready so that we could have an intimate meal for 2 in the cosy cottage. We have been several more times... More
