This old place has a lovely atmosphere, a large dining room and a small bar area with tables dotted around. We went there for sunday lunch and it was extremely busy. You cannot book and so you need to get there early. The service was excellent and there was a very good choice of sunday roast options. There is also... More

We arrived hungry, after a long day on the river. It's a very well kept establishment and decorated with character. We were welcomed and given a table quickly. The service was so swift that the last member of the group was still ordering as the first food arrived at the table. And it was delicious.

This just off the main road but quite, large car park and free car parking. the hotel is old and very interesting. We had lunch, the food was tasty, hot and the waiters very friendly. There is plenty to see and do from this hotel.

We ate in the restaurant on a Wednesday evening. The bar & function room were busy, but we had the restaurant to ourselves. The waiter was very friendly & attentive. He explained that the meals would be 30 minutes. This time flew by though as we made the most of exploring the room & taking in the scenery, including some... More

This is a great spot for a Drink and of snack. It easy to locate and should be plenty of room to park. If you are on a long drive from England to Wales , then pop in for a quick Break. DONE

Visiting the butterfly zoo and hedge maze across the road. The old court looked good from the outside but the food and atmosphere was poor. Not child friendly as the menu admits - I.e. Well behaved children are accepted, we do not do peas or beans, our chips are seasoned and we only do dressed salads so deal with it.... More

As a bunch of canoeists coming up for the march weekend, I don't think they would of expected us with all our empty stomachs to join them for the Saturday night, but after providing some notice, they were happy to accommodate us all! They provided us our own dining room and told us upfront that because of our large group... More
