Disappointing, we wont be returning. Being a beautiful sunny day my colleagues and I decided it would be a nice idea to go out and have lunch in the sun. I rang as soon as the pub was open and booked a table outside. In the past food has taken over half hour to arrive so we deliberately ordered simple... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lord Nelson for 3 nights for our daughter's wedding, with the pub doubling up as the reception venue in a marquee in the beer garden and in their conservatory. We spent the first two nights eating in the restaurant and drinking in the bar where we met a large number of very friendly... More

I stayed for two nights attending a wedding held in the summer house and marquee at the pub. Staff were friendly and hospitable and went above and beyond in making sure that we had a great stay. The rooms were warm, spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious and generous. Very good value for what was a lovely stay.

We had the absolute pleasure of having our wedding at The Lord Nelson. I stayed overnight ahead of the wedding and the staff were super attentive to our every need & desire. The rooms were perfect for getting ready. The 'family room' gave more than enough space for prep with me & all 6 (!) bridesmaids. And breakfast was heavenly!... More

We stayed 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend, the rooms are small but adequate, the staff were helpful especially the young girl who was behind the bar when we arrived on Saturday. The food was really tasty, & the breakfast was well worth the money. I told the owner that there were cobwebs in our room & within an... More

This was a very pleasant surprise to find a pub/hotel that was run by a family who really cared. The converted stable block was really interesting and we stayed in the "Tack" room. The furniture was better than some hotels we have stayed in and included colour TV which we didn't have much time for and an ensuite bathroom. Although... More

After having been to this pub a few weeks ago for the excellent fish and chip night, I thought I would take my wife and our two friends for the steak night which is £18.95 for two people for Rump steak including a glass of wine. When our food came it presented very well, however, when we attempted to cut... More

Just another pub with rooms. No way. This pub has style in their rooms. Our room was in a converted stable block with 2 single beds & a double. Beds where the comfiest I've ever slept in, room very spacious, well suited to a family. Had a meal in the bar. Good selection on the menu & also on the... More

Of all the places I have stayed this was the most pleasant surprise. I thought it was "just a pub" with rooms but this turned out to be excellent value and friendly as well. We were given the "Tack" room, which was part of a converted stable block and it was really the best and most comfortable as far as... More

Arrived mid afternoon and was promptly shown to our room. We had room 1 above the bar. Very nice room with a humungous bed, well decorated and en-suite. Only downside was that the shower did not work properly, it varied from freezing cold to roasting hot so you had to nip in and out when the temperature got bearable, then... More
