I have stay frequently at this lovely old hotel come pub, it appears to be an old pub (and indeed it is) howvere it has hotel in its name. Est in 1492 it ouzes character, The rooms are standard and what you can expect, a couple of issues. Wifi isnt available in every room which is annoying when staying on business and the other is my old chestnut, the shower. Ive stayed in two of the bedrooms on each occasion the water pressure and control of temp is awful. Apart from these two gripes I have to say the place is worth staying again and again. The service and selection of food is fab. The food is delicious!!!
