Stayed overnight in room 1 to celebrate my husband's birthday, so neither of us had to drive after drinking. The bedroom was very spacious with a comfortable bed, functional en suite with quadrant electric shower (good water pressure), basin and loo. There were a couple of tub chairs and a coffee table, plus a small dining table and two dining... More

A pleasant village inn run by volunteers from the local community. We visited for lunch on a Saturday and had a nice window seat and were promptly given a menu by the friendly waitress, there was plenty of choice. The food, typical pub grub, was well presented and tasty, my only grumble was that my small portion of fish really... More

Thank you for your positive review and appreciation of what it is we are doing here at The Raven Community Inn.

Stopped along the way while hiking Offa's Dyke (and you really don't have much choice around here) However, very surprised with what a wonderful room we received. unfortunately, we arrived on Monday which is the only day the community run inn has no food or drink. however, i had called and Lorna kindly arranged to get us dinner and breakfast...

Monday is the only day our volunteers (and hard working chef) get to rest ! We're glad that Lorna could sort you out with sustenance. Our community-run village shop is open seven days though, so (during shop hours) you can be sure of getting something nice to prepare in your self catering room. Pleased you enjoyed your stopover and hope... More

Room was great - clean, spacious & well decorated but the toiletries in the bathroom need improving, a couple of liquid soap bottles is too downmarket. The main issue is the restaurant which is the only place to eat for miles. The menu & specials board was vast in the number of choices and apart from chips everything must be... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your impressions of your stay at The Raven a couple of weeks ago and for giving us 4 out of 5.

Stayed here when walking Offa's Dyke. Such a nice place. The rooms were clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate for making drinks and preparing breakfast and snacks. The staff, both in the pub and in the shop a few yards away, were so friendly and helpful. The food at the pub was really nice too.
