This 1774 building is lovely. Rooms are small but sufficient and clean. Breakfast freshly cooked and served in the old stables. Very nice. Service with a smile. What more could you want for the night and at such a good price. "Locals" advised us against staying here. Can't tell you why though. Perfectly adequate. Little noisy until the pub shut... More

Plenty of free parking, good free WiFi in the room and down in the public areas. Evening meal good and excellent cooked breakfast which set us up for the day ahead. We booked for... More

Friendly staff, but busy in the bar so had to find our own way to the room. No frills check in. Average sized but well appointed room with quite a small bathroom. Plenty of noise from the Wedding Party revellers in the courtyard below, but not really a problem. Restaurant hours are quite poor with everything over by 2030 so... More

Not a pub-goer so can't comment on that part as have never used it, but sparsely aesthetic with cobbled yard 'garden'. The attached Bistro serves the best 'Full English' breakfast ever; the 'small' being more than enough for me if not others! They also do excellent 'lunches for a fiver', Mon- Fri, including yummy roasts with all trimmings [get there... More

We stayed here in December, what a find!! the room was clean and HUGE, the bathroom looked brand new it was that clean. the welcome from the staff and locals in the bar made our trip very memorable. the only criticism was the breakfast was too big. Half the amount would have been more than adequate

We recently spent 2 nights here as part if a group of 3 couples/families. We received a friendly welcome and immediately shown to our room. The room although not very big was perfectly functional and spotlessly clean - there is no wardrobe which may be a problem if you were staying for longer - however the hanging rail and coat... More
