Had an overnight stay with a living social deal. The whole deal was excellent value! I read the previous review and was prepared to stay in the attic room! Lots of stairs to a secret hidden treasure! The bedroom we had was a twin room (we did put the beds together and made a giant king sized!!) which was tastefully... More

Me and my husband stayed here one week ago. The room was comfortable and clean, but could do with some updating. We ate in the restaurant and the food was nothing special, in fact I had Slow Cooked Braised Beef and I was actually unable to cut through it, to eat. My husband tried and he couldn't cut it neither.... More

We stayed here for one night with a Living Social deal. We stayed in roon 16, which was lovely. A lot of thought has gone into the room making it very warm and welcoming.

Hello, Thanks for leaving us a review, we do appreciate the comments. Sorry about the eggs benedict, it should say with or without ham for our vegetarian friends, it seems we have turned it into a vegetarian option, I will look into it. Thanks again and I hope you will visit in the not too distant future. Teresa More

Just returned from an overnight stay having previously stayed in January this year. Owners very thoughtfully put us in the room we stayed in last time, room 23, which in our opinion is a lovely room, albeit at the top of the hotel. Thank you for doing that Terry. We ate in the restaurant and the food was very nice,... More

My partner and I stayed here for 1 night with a groupon voucher. Our room was right on the top floor which was ok as it was very quiet. The room hadn't been refurbished but it was ok with a large bathroom and separate shower. We ate in the restaurant and the food was absolutely delicious! We even got a... More

This is a lovely little pub with an old fashioned, friendly bar with good staff. There was a band playing for someone’s birthday and they were really good, we thoroughly enjoyed listening to them and they made the place really lively. We did try to eat in the restaurant, which looked lovely and quite posh (compared to the bar) but... More
