Excellent stay. English breakfast was quality, the snack lunch and evening meals were exceptional. The real ale was in good form especially the Dukes Head bitter. The rooms very comfortable and clean. Staff were pleasant, polite and made our stay a very pleasant one.

I recently rang here to book a short break that I had purchased from Amazon Local, and to say that the person was unfriendly and unhelpful would be an understatement. I bought the voucher in February which had an expiry date of 31st July. I phoned on 6th April to make a booking for later that month, and the man... More

While tucking into excellent hearty home made food, Clive and Julie were very welcoming and went the extra mile in ensuring we had a good night. The Saturday evening after a long day out, we decided to call the pub to ask if they did take out (Not... More

before we arrived we checked the reviews which contained a few negative ones but Caroline and I were absolutely taken aback by the way we were treated by Clive and Julie as nothing was too much trouble...down to taking our wet clothes and drying them for us.Felt we got on like a house on fire and the staff were also...

Visited for Sunday lunch with friends and a wet Sunday! Please was warm and welcoming. We had a great lunch, very good value, nice atmosphere, and were well looked after. Didnt have a sweet but coffee was good.

Having spent two wonderful evenings at this Hotel I can only advise others to book and enjoy the friendly, homely atmosphere provide by the management and staff. Food excellent and plenty of it, accommodation and location very good. Words cannot praise the experience enough.

The adverse reviews dated 19th and 20th Feb are unfair and can be largely ignored as they are not based on the standard of the accommodation, the standard of food and drinks and the standard of customer service. Some people will moan for the sake of moaning. The amazon offer was incredibly popular and it had to be on a... More
