I booked a sparkling afternoon tea here for four via Groupon as a mothers day present, spending £36. When we got there, the place was quite dark and dingy and very cold. We had to ask for a heater to be brought out because there is no working fireplace and the heating was "broken." on arrival, there was no specially... More

First time visit here. Quite a nice room setting and clean. The food was really good and there was a good choice from the menu (2 for £12 at lunchtime). Well definitely go back and I recommend others to try it out

As usual we had a lovely family celebration here. It's just a shame that when its a larger party you have to pre order what you want....a week before you want it. As usual the food was lovely and the staff very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. Xxx

Visited this pub for afternoon tea with three friends. Whilst the food was lovely and fresh we felt there was little of it for the price we paid. One round of sandwiches each, a scone and two very small cakes. A pot of tea was served between two people and two of us had coffee. We were not offered or... More

My only gripe really would be about the cost of a glass of cola £2 is a bit OTT especially as its out of the way and... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights & on both nights ate in the restaurant. The food here is fantastic. All freshly cooked food with generous portions & attentive staff. The hotel is open to non residents & if I lived nearer here I'd be eating out here weekly! Highly recommended.

Re-visited this country pub with my wife on Monday 5th January 2015, as so greatly impressed on earlier visits. We were not disappointed! I had the best spanish omelet I've ever had, really tasty, with a side serving of salad. My wife chose the chicken. I recommend both dishes to anyone, with the addition of great service, surroundings and extraordinarily... More
