While driving cross country towards Bristol I happened across this delightful old world charm establishment and was pleased to get a room , some dinner and drinks and pass an enjoyable evening. The friendly greeting on arrival and the upgrade to a superior room was apreciated. They charge £75 single occupancy in a standard room. £85 in an upgraded room and £95 for superior. I paid the £75 and not sure what I was upgraded to , but it was enough for the room they gave me.. I think all rooms should be the same price, £75 is enough . The BIG drawbackfor me, which should be addressed if there is to be a future is the total lack of WiFi and even more disturbing is NO PHONE SIGNAL FOR O2..network. People today must be contactable. Apart fron this the place is warm and cosy but the housekeeping is a little stale. Looks like they try to run the place on a tight budget, and almost pull it off. The Bar and Dining facilities are excellent, even if a little removed from the main accomodation section. Pints of Guinness at £4.40 is a little OTT as is a 250ml glass of red at £6.55 but my main of local Phesant was perfect at £14.50.. All in all I would return but only 1 night at ba time as the lack of mobile signal and wifi is too restrictive. Perhaps the propitors like it that way ?
