I arrived dripping wet from day 4 of my coast to coast walk, the staff were helpful and welcoming despite me dripping on their floor. The drying room is inadequate for a pub that gets so many wet walkers arriving but the fire and the welcome and very warm. Room was clean and comfy if a little on the small... More

Jane and Chris, the owners, made our stay so relaxing. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Would definitely go again, and would highly recommend this... More

The brilliant thing is that we were able to take our dog with us and she was made extremely welcome being as she is... More
