Dirty carpets, old mattresses thrown out in the back yard, piles of dirty laundry in the corridor, room was not serviced for the 3 days I stayed there. Definitely needs a thorough "make over". Breakfast was so-so, no extra knife for toast & marmalade (and had to go searching for the marmalade!). Staff were friendly but still would not go... More

Stayed here this weekend and have very mixed thoughts. The whole place could do with a re vamp as carpets and décor very old and worn. We were given room 5 at the back which was a tiny ? double room even though I had booked a twin. We had to as ask for towels which were however provided straight... More

To have four pubs in a tiny pretty village square is amazing , to find one serving such ordinary fair is astounding. The competition in the square for customers must be an ongoing problem and the one thing that would have customers flocking in is good food. It's not rocket science. The menu is small with some interesting additions. I... More

Seven of us Saturday evening went for a family meal after visiting the Forbidden Corner up the road. Received good service: staff were pleasant and helpful. The menu was good and the food very tasty. The homemade chips were gorgeous. Even better was a very decent pint of Theakston's Old Peculiar. The kids loved their food too. General consensus was... More

Booked a table for 3 people, 8pm Bank Holiday Sunday. We arrived to be told they had run out of food at 2pm that day and that they had forgotten about our table! No apology was given to us although they did offer to invite the chef down to see what 'he could rustle up but it wouldn't be the... More

This is not 5 star so can't understand the negative reviews, you get exactly what you pay for in this life. 50 quid for room and breakfast which consists of full English, cereal, toast and preserves, juice etc so to me is fantastic value for money. Jon the landlord works tirelessly to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Rooms... More
