Newly renovated bathroom very good but found the shower taps hard to regulate. Breakfast was average but the restaurant meals very good. Staff helpful. Car park at the back in... More

I would definitely eat... More

We thought we would have a drive out to this restaurant and have a change from the hotel we were staying in, that was the first mistake. Although the starter was really nice, the main was a bit of a let down. The fish batter was over cooked and the fish was tasteless and the chips weren't much better. Although... More

As the food is normally brilliant we were both looking forward to big, home made scones. We were VERY disappointed. I think a member of staff had run across to Greggs and bought the... More

Room was to rear well proportioned, with plenty of space to rear. Tried the ales, Theakstons Lightfoot was well kept and beautifully served. Would have eaten but they had an event... More

Stayed here on 30/05/15, Was greeted with a friendly face on reception, the room we had was at the back of the hotel with no view out the window, however it was clean and of a good size, the bathroom was newly refurbished and of a good standard. A lot of new carpets and updating appears to have been carried... More

The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful , as were the rest at the bar and in the restaurant . Dinner and breakfast were good... More
