We didn't stay here as a b&b but went as a group of 13 lads for dinner. It's a beautiful country pub with all the character you would hope for. The menu was small but perfectly formed, everyone of us loved our meals! Pool table, stuffed animal heads and a friendly landlord, what more could you want?

I had a lovely stay here whilst attending a wedding at Ellingham Hall, Sylvia was so helpful after I arrived late following a HUGE traffic jam on the A1. The Inn is lovely, in a beautiful wee village. The facilities are excellent and so comfortable, the breakfast was lovely and the staff obliging. I was sad to have to leave... More

My partner and I stayed here overnight when we were invited to a wedding evening reception at Ellingham Hall which is just a short walk away, through the village. We did not actually use the pub facilities on the evening, but had a lovely friendly welcome on the afternoon by Sylvia, a very comfortable sleep after the wedding "do", and... More

Only opens at 18:30 and only serves food Wednesday to Saturday but worth the wait. When we arrived (4 adults and 2 kids) at 18:31 or thereabouts expecting to eat, a look of panic ensued because of staff shortage but once we made it apparent we weren't in a rush the staff relaxed and we chatted and joked. Yes we... More

This is a proper country pub with beautifully clean and well appoiinted guest rooms. We were going to a wedding party at nearby Ellingham Hall and used this as our base. We were welcomed on arrival, and on staggering back in late in the evening enjoyed a drink with the owners. The breakfast was delicious and the whole experience was... More

A group of 11 ladies celebrating a hen do over the weekend descended upon the Pack Horse Inn for a night in the local pub. We were welcomed by Stephen and his wife who were very accommodating for a group of ladies. We had a great evening spent here and all said we would love to visit again. Thanks for... More

I, along with my partner, visited the pack horse in for an evening meal. I have to say the waiting staff that served our food (dark haired girl) seemed uninterested and rude. However the food was spot on; presentation of food was great and it tasted as good as it looked. Recommended.
