This is a really nice hotel... Not great but really nice, as it does look a little tired in places. Ambiance in the bar and reception area is enhanced by having 2 open fires. Have to mention Clare...

We decided to try the advertised "Food Around the World" night. This is a buffet (eat all you can for £10.95) of foods from all over the world.

All the food our party tried was lovely but for a quick snack you can't go far wrong with their cheesy chips - the onion rings aren't too bad either. Just wish I'd had chance to try the Hunters Burger...next time for sure!
