Passed this several times but finally went in on our last night and so glad we did. You will never visit such an interesting pub, if your around you must go in. We were made to feel very welcome by Sally and she made it even more interesting. Full of history and years worth of hoarding but interesting. Didn't eat... More

Sadly the food let it down. We had microwaved pasties. Loved the unusual interior with nooks and crannys. We would like to come back and stay in the hotel, but we would make sure we didn't eat there. .

Stopped off at this inn to have a look. We were made very welcome and enjoyed the 'ironic' song sang to us by a local. A definite must if you are passing........My father visited 25 years ago and told me about it. I have actually gone to have a look now and will pass on this spectacular inn to others... More

Strangest experience of my life! God damn us not having much cash when we went as they don't take cards so regrettably could only stay for 1. Spooky, quirky, kooky, it's so hard to describe the place but totally fascinating and an absolute must if you are in the area! Still can't quite get my head around the place, it... More

Lovely little place to eat and drink with accommodation. So much history attached to the "Highwayman". It is well worth a visit to see this wonderful place. Run by a lovely couple who are friendly and welcoming to all.
