The hotel has a 'old worldly' feel about the place. Good restaurant and bar. Good choice of beers and ciders .Food very good, both nights I stayed, I had steak which was perfectly cooked to my liking. Full range English breakfast. My room, Number 1, was a large double room, full of character. Uneven floor added to the quaintness of... More

We had a really wonderful evening on Saturday night at The Dusthole. The food really is home cooked and is very, very good. Both dinner and breakfast was absolutely delicious. The very cosy atmoshphere in this gorgeous old pub is completely down to the owner Tony and his lovely staff.

I visited on Saturday night around 8pm. Less than a dozen people in the bar but service was slow when ordering drink. 4 choices for vegetarians, I ordered the tomato and brie tart. Advertised as served with fresh veg. Technically, they may have been right but they should say salad if they mean salad. Dish cost £11.50, cider £3.75, frankly... More

Our 3 night stay was wonderful. Tony is a wonderful host has a wealth of local knowledge. The food is excellent and very good value. We stayed in cabin number 1 which was very warm and comfortable. Must also mention Tyson who also made us feel very welcome. Planning another visit very soon.

This was our second stay here, booked directly with Tony for same room, room number one, the bed is very comfy, the floorboards are negotiable with care...especially at the end of the bed! Lovely big room, plenty of space overlooking the front of the hotel. The dinner was enormous, the ambience good and breakfast was okay, self service, but plenty... More

In need of a complete redecoration, this place should be closed down and some money spent on it. The room was tatty, the bed uncomfortable and the shower hardly worked. Breakfast was a dried up self service in an untidy setting with dogs hanging around outside. Only plus point is the beer is decent, but that's about it.

We had a great stay. The room was lovely and had quirky stylish furniture and the biggest bed and bathroom I have ever had in this country. We were met by friendly bar staff and brought fresh milk for our room. The pub is lovely and the food looked good, breakfast was certainly good and in a great breakfast room.... More
