The Inn is an old coach house from the 16th century, it is quite a quirky building. We stayed in the room number 3 over-viewing the river. The room was clean as well as the bathroom, spacious shower which is quite nice. The room decor is up to date, kettle with coffee and tea, small screen tv. The downsize is... More

I've been coming for meals here nearly every week to meet up with friends, because it's just so wonderful! Really tasty food, a specials board which has new items every time I go in! Really friendly staff and a very warm welcome. Great prices, great pub! What more can I say?! You have yourself a very loyal customer. For those... More

First of all the good points, pub is very quaint and staff are helpful and friendly. Seems to be a couple of bars and a separate eating area too. Didn't eat here in the evening but both my daughters have on separate occasions and they both rate the food highly.. Breakfast was fine, no complaints. Now the room was another... More

Another day, another dollar! Lovely pub, really lovely bar staff, sincerely very lovely, very caring, welcoming and extremely friendly. Nice setting, very nice pub, small but lovely outside space. Nice looking food menu, plates coming out of the kitchen look nice. Shame about the landlady, seems to enjoy being rude when it suits her!!!!!!!!!!!

We also had dinner in the bar and found this to be very nice and good portion sizes. Breakfast was also plentiful... More

This is a charming old inn. It has a local bar and a very good restaurant. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are pleasant and helpful. The setting is charming. The car park is a bit tricky, but it is the UK.
