The friendliness of the staff running this pub more than makes up for the tired bedrooms. Unfortunately it seems that despite who ever is running the Haig, they have all had a constant battle with the owners (the brewery?) trying to persuade them to spend money on updating the bedroom facilities. Such a shame and very short sighted as this... More

..and I did have a decent night's sleep. I tried being clever and booking somewhere relatively cheap but, with seemingly good guest reviews. I made a mistake. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Dinner was poor: Frozen chips and veggies accompanying a rather dry steak and ale pie. But, I must mention the cooked breakfast. I know not how... More

My husband and our two children stayed at the Sir Douglas Haig. Our aim was to experience the qwerky charms of a countryside inn. This was IT! The rooms were spacious. The beds were clean and comfy.

As a business spending thousands of pounds each month on hotels for staff for over a decade now, this is a first for me. We booked the room bed and breakfast for last night, our rep turned up to check in, after a very long day, to find the hotel in darkness and no reply to the telephone or when... More

The food was very disappointing especially the Fish & Chips. Over-cooked (reheated?) fish, peas cold, chips dry and tasteless. Salad with dressing was also unnecessary with the fish & chips. Sausage & Mash was only just passable. Large lump of gristle in sausage. Improvement required.

Went here recently for a Sunday roast lunch with a friend. Food was absolutely horrible - the most tasteless everything I've ever had. Atmosphere horrible - it was pretty dead at Sunday lunch. Cheap tables and seating. I felt like I was sitting back in some grubby pub in South London rather than the lovely area this place actually is... More
