Stayed there for one night on my own and had dinner at the bar. The place is busy, meaning that the locals find it a good place to go to. The staff were friendly, took me to my room, got me a table at the bar with a plug for my computer. Very nice. The food was reasonable, maybe a... More

A ladies lunch today with family, we were shown to a lovely set table with white table linen and fresh flowers in a beautiful room, the strutt room. The food was excellent and reasonably priced, and the service good too. We had a great afternoon catching up with family. We will definately go again and I highly recommend it.

Stayed for one night March 2015. Overall had a good experience. In a good central location and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The decor in the bar/restaurant was nice and modern and the breakfast was nice. The only negative was that we stayed in room 22 which wasn't one of the updated rooms and it's fair to... More

Went for a drink before a meal at the New Inn , OMG what a shock , pint of Poronie and a medium white wine £11.50 ! I questioned this and was told wine was from a £20 bottle , I didn't ask for wine from a £20 bottle so be aware ! We will not be returning
