Our extended family of 11 adults and 3 children stayed here for the second year running, for the weekend. The hotel suited us very well and we stayed on a "Dinner, bed and breakfast" basis. We found everyone very helpful and we had a lovely week end

Had a lovely one night stop here with DB&B. A cosy place, with oak panelled dining room and a quirky little pub. It's an old building but the room we were in (Master) had been refurbished to a high standard and was very clean. Beautiful outside seating but we didn't use it due to the weather. Will be back during... More

We stayed here for two nights with Dolly our cockapoo. Most 'dog friendly' hotels seem to have so many rules for the dog that the friendliness is lost. This hotel was fabulous. No long set of do's and don'ts. We were treated like grown ups who would obviously not let the dog do things it shouldn't which was really refreshing.... More

Our "very" modern bedroom 3 was superb with fantastic views and a great contrast to the well preserved and "old fashioned" bar areas, each with it's own wood burner. Nice to have the option of the " 3 sampler" glasses of real ale before deciding on full pint choice. We dined in on both nights and the food was freshly... More
