We recently stayed here, as very close to Alton towers. We booked through agent, however when we tried to contact the inn, no one ever answered. The staff were a little clueless, however very polite, just seems they were just about getting by. Room was big, spacious, very stuffy though. Needs updating, especially the bathroom . Took me a while... More

We stayed for a family birthday party. Food was excellent, recommend the fish and chips. Room was clean and nice views although could do with a bit of updating and shower gel isn't provided in the bathroom. Pillows were hard but the bed in general was really comfy and we slept well.

My partner and I tried the railway for Sunday lunch, the menu was good but we are looking forward to trying the more extensive evening menu. The food was excellent and presentation faultless. Staff were friendly, value for money was great just hope when the new tenements have settled they might consider updating the pub a little. Overall we will... More

Spent the Saturday evening here. Considering that it had only been taking over four days previous the new owners were doing a great job. Everyone was helpful with a smile. Brilliant chef with reasonabley priced food and decent portions. Yes there are things that needed tweaking but it was clean, if we needed anything we only had to ask. Like... More
