4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

this was a real surprise, a pub within fishing distance of the water, nautical themed but well appointed comfy bedrooms. The breakfast was great and staff keen to help with our multitude of bikes. No battle to get wifi. Right in town but very quiet at night,

My friends and I were greeted warmly at the pub (which is very cosy), and informed our room wasn't quite ready, so we decided to sit down to lunch. Food was very nice. The hotel rooms have recently been refurbished and they have done a lovely job. We had 4 single beds and plenty of space to move around. Everything... More

Shame it was only the one night. The lass who showed us the room, and took care of our breakfast in the morning was a credit to the place. I hope they are paying her enough, and that one day she can have a foreign holiday.

We had lunch here. Service was friendly, food was simple fare but good, atmosphere was genial, and the bar was packed at lunch time. Dogs were welcome which might bother some people where food is being served.

My wife and visited The Union Inn tonight (Friday 20th March) at 18.00hrs for something to eat and drink. It was recommended in the Good Beer Guide and so I decided to give it a try. I was rewarded with a very pleasant experience. An island bar dominates a pleasant area set aside for drinkers and diners. The decor is... More
