We found this hotel by chance. Stunning! Hosts are wonderful and very helpful. The place is full of character and the drive there is great! Trigger the dog is a smoother and likes to be patted. The rooms are small but have everything you need and the nice hot shower was a welcome relief after being stuck on the A36... More

Lovely old pub in an idilic spot BUT the people running it were miserable and VERY unwelcoming . We left and had a lovely warm welcome from the Horseshoe down the Lane , had lunch there and it was fab.

A wonderful old English country inn, set in a picturesque village. Dave, Linda and Trigger the dog were fantastic hosts. We spent one night here, but it felt like so much longer - for all the right reasons! It felt like a real escape, deep in the country, surrounded by rolling hills and paths to walk for hours. The locals... More

After a last minute booking we really didn't know what to expect but was extremely surprised and happy that we decided to stay in the Crown Inn. Could not fault this quaint and quirky true English tavern. The landlord Dave, is very knowledgeable and serves great local ale and if he likes you he will share his secret sloe gin... More

What a fab place! Booked as a last minute deal for my Boyfriend and I and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in Room 3 and it was lovely! Really nice bedding and really nicely decorated including a pretty sassy 400 years old mirror from Hampton Palace apparently! Had a lovely evening talking to Dave behind the bar and... More

A quintessential English country pub. Thatched roof, inglenook fireplace with open fires, low ceilings, creaky floor boards , friendly dog and welcoming landlords. Set in beautiful countryside with lots of good walks and places to visit. It is also dog welcoming. This pub is a great place to stay for a few days. It is cosy and welcoming. Dave is... More

This was a lucky find as we had been directed to other eateries and couldnt understand why this one hadnt been mentioned. We subsequently were told that reports on the food had varied. Well, we obviously struck lucky on a dark and stormy night. My companions had Steak pie, a Pasta dish and I had just cheesy chips and garlic... More

We stayed here Monday to Thursday, but ended up wishing we could have stayed longer. The rooms are homely and very reasonably priced. The meals we ate were delicious across the board, with the highlights being the fish/ steak and ale pie, and the Barnsley chop. We ended each day back at the pub, always being welcomed with a friendly... More
