The bedrooms have had a recent refurb and are comfy clean ,with all facilities, toiletries and soft fluffily white towels.... More

Booked one night without breakfast - £35. Initially shown to room with pair of trainers in corner and empty bottle of cider next to bed. Not the greatest start but lady returned to say she had given us wrong room! Returned after attending party nearby at 12pm. At 2am almighty noise of people running up and down stairs shouting.

After booking for 20ish people and ending up with 26 I was really impressed by the fast service, fabulous food and very reasonable prices. No one had to wait and the food was served piping hot by friendly, helpful and efficient staff. The one query we did have was swiftly rectified and there was more food than we could eat... More

What a find. This pub and accommodation is really good. Well stocked bar with a good variety of wines, spirits and beers, all reasonably priced. Four of us arrived for the weekend as we were attending a wedding at Warwick House, just 1.8 miles away. On the Friday evening we ate at The Great Western. The menu was extensive and... More

We stayed for one night last week,as we were attending a family wedding in the evening. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were 'tired' but clean, very clean and comfortable beds and large en suite shower rooms. We paid £88 for 3 adults and 1 child, including large breakfast, which I think was very good value. Would definitely... More

We were heading this way for a friend's wedding in a nearby village and stayed friday to sunday. When we arrived we noticed how nice the decor of the pub was and we were shown to our room by a girl named Kirsty who was very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable with a good sized bathroom and tea... More

Having eaten here some years ago and not having had a positive experience, I was somewhat nervous about returning as it was possibly the worst meal I had ever had. However, came on a Groupon voucher and decided to give it a go as it was under new management. I have to say it surpassed all my expectations. The staff... More

A little confused by the previous comments?! We certainly didn't see any friendly faces or a friendly atmosphere. The food was very average, the restaurant was cold, the best part of the night was the beer & coffee! A real shame, so much potential but we certainly won't be rushing back!
