We brought my brother and his wife here for a meal after they had visited for a few days and before they drove back to Bloxwich, near Birmingham. They loved the ambience of the place and all the natural wood, the bar itself being of particular note. The staff were warm, friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble. The... More

The hotel it's self is lovely. The family room was brilliant. The staff were great and the food was great. I would have given it a five star if they had not left a piping hot oven outside with no signs stating this and my 17 month old son burnt his hand on it. I thought this was very irresponsible...

We appologise for the incident which occurred during your visit, the oven you are referring to is our Hog Roast which does have 'Caution Hot' signs printed on the sides, which would have been cooking for that evening. We regularly check this and do create a barrier surrounding the roast but we will look in to additional signs. Again we... More

I visit this place fairly regularly for meetings but we usually hang around afterwards to have a social drink in the bar. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the beer is well kept. There is a good choice of real ales. The decor is traditional English pub with low beams and it has a really nice atmosphere in... More

Stayed here last month, was planning to stay in Sheffield itself, but everything was booked/expensive because of the tramlines festival. This place was a pleasant surprise, very handy for the motorway, also easy to get into Sheffield straight along the main road. Breakfast was generally good, although the fruit was off one morning. Room was very comfy, but one of... More

Met up with a friend for an evening meal. It was the First time I'd eaten here in years and I must admit it was much improved. The food was superb, very attentive staff and a lovely atmosphere. I would highly recommend as offers great value for money.

Lovely place. I stayed with 4 friends for 3 nights. Very helpful staff, comfortable, very clean throughout - including hotel rooms, bathroom, pub toilets and restaurant.
