“Awesome steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Just had a meal and it was in the top 3 of all steak I have eaten. Friendly atmosphere and open log fire sets the mood wonderfully. I understand there are meal deals starting in the new year so hope to get back and test the steak again!

Stayed December 2012

Decidedly patchy experience this midweek lunchtime.
Flat Guinness, a kitchen that closed on the dot of 14:30 despite only half our party having ordered and a very off-hand attitude towards the three (very well behaved) teenagers in our group. They were told to stop slouching on the sofa!
If the pub was heaving it may have been acceptable to ask them to move up but apart from us there were three other patrons, and the three (teens) all had been bought soft drinks and snacks.

Just had a wonderful meal at the Rose, I had the steak and it was cooked just the way I liked, and my wife had the homemade burger, this must not be confused with the rubbish ones you get in fast food places, real meat and cooked just right.

We had a pleasant chat to the hosts, and found them friendly and not in your face, and was left alone once we started to eat, apart from being asked if our meal was ok. I have just read some of the comments below which I found quite surprizing, as I have just got back from the Canaries and I did not find it cold at all. Overall we have no complaints and would go back again.

After visiting the pub on a Saturday lunchtime and seeing delicious looking food being served to various tables, we decided to book a table for a Monday evening . We were shown into the small back room of the pub, where one other table was occupied. The food was average, but as the room felt cold, we asked the young waitress if it would be ok to close the open door to a corridor. We were told that this was not possible as 'people' were using it. By the time we had finished our main courses, we were freezing, the radiator behind us had been luke warm since we arrived. The landlady asked us if everything had been ok- we replied that we had been cold and had asked the waitress twice if we could close the door . Instead of an apology we were told that this was an old building, the radiator was on ( which was a joke) and we couldn,t expect a 400 year old building to be warm!! What happened to the customer is always right?? The landlady was totally unsympathetic and she really needs to understand that she needs to cater to the needs of her customers. This was a shame as the food was tasty and excellent beer on offer.

We spent an overnight stay here as we were attending a wedding locally. Our room was large and spacious with a good sized bed.
The en-suite bathroom was a different matter. It had a concertina door which opened outwards. Once you were in the bathroom there was absolutely no way you could close the door completely as the handle was on the outside - extremely disconcerting!!!
There was a large shower cubicle but the toilet was squeezed in between the wall and the side of the shower. The grouting in the shower cubicle was mucky and orange coloured and really needed a good scrub. The ventilation fan above the shower didn't work. I tried to wash my hands at the wash basin but even after seven minutes the hot tap was still pouring cold water.
We weren't asked to register when we arrived and were given no instructions as to how to gain entry to the pub if we arrived back after it had closed, what time breakfast was and were very much left to our own devices.
The television was an old style set with a digi-box underneath. We turned it on and there was a notice displayed on the screen dating back to September to say that the television needed to be re-tuned. My husband tried several times to do this but to no avail and we decided that although there is a television in the room it is obviously not destined to be watched!
We actually arrived back about 11.30 p.m. just as the pub was closing and organised what time we would have breakfast.
Once back in our room we tried to get hot water but again, no success. They offer a bottle of water which is lovely, but no glass to drink it from - and as the pub was closed there was no way we could go down and collect a glass from the bar.
The bed was way too soft but this is more down to individual choice and I'm sure other people would have been happy with it.
Following morning and still no hot water - really not good enough
Went down for breakfast and it was apparent that we were the only guests. Glass of orange juice already on the table and the owner asked what we would like for breakfast ...... we asked what there was and he said we could have what we wanted - we could have cereal, full English or perhaps scrambled egg and smoked salmon. It seemed very strange not to have some sort of menu to choose from. My husband had a full English breakfast and I chose the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon - all very well cooked and tasty with a choice of white and brown toast and croissants.
For the £80.00 we paid I really don't think it was value for money and I don't think we would stay there again

The good things: our evening meal was excellent & couldn't be faulted, a decent choice of cask ales to choose from too.
The staff we met were all very friendly as were the locals so created a lovely ambiance with the log fire in the old bar room.

The not so good things: Breakfast. Hmm. No choice. No cereals, yoghurt or fruits.
Fruit juice was already in a glass at the table so no choice of grapefuit/cranberry, if you didn't like orange, tough.
We had one vegetarian & one full english breakfast. The veggie breakfast was very nice but I'm afraid having peppers for breakfast isn't good for the digestive system!
On the full english asked for the bacon to be very well cooked, it came pink & fatty (ie to the chef's liking not the customer)
As with the fruit juice, we were not given any options, just the breakfast put in front of us.
The accommodation: the room was large and airy, one double bed & one single.
Beds were hard & the controls had been removed from the radiators so the temperature couldn't be adjusted.
The television was just a lot of white noise as it was an old cathode ray TV & the reconditioned digibox didn't work. Technically there was a TV in the room, practically there wasn't.
The hospitality tray was okay, cups were a bit on the dirty side & needed to be washed before use. There wasn't a socket near the tray so we took the kettle to the other side of the room to plug in.
Biscuits and bottled water were a nice touch.
The bathroom, oh dear, I haven't used a shower attached to the taps since the 1970's! Not much else to say except it was very clean in there.
Would I eat there again? Yes if I was passing (we detoured on the way home to call in for lunch only to find it locked up despite the website saying it was open).
Would I stay overnight? No. I can get comfier beds & more breakfast choice at the Premier inn for half the price.
