The bedrooms were thoughtfully converted with good quality fittings, ipod dock, decent TV, bathrobes, coffee facilities etc and were spotlessly clean. Unfortunately two issues significantly spoil a comfortable stay; the temperature that could not be reduced below 22 degrees (despite the outside temperature being less than 12) and noise from adjoining rooms; the pub welcomes dogs and we had one that persistently yapped in the next room which, combined with children that were playing in the room above and were clearly audible from six in the morning, did little towards any rural tranquillity. The restaurant rather resembled a crèche with crayoning paraphernalia provided to keep the children happy; great if you are a family but not for those who seek a peaceful dining experience. Food is generous in quantity and OK in quality but vegetables are generally an 'extra' which may explain why, of the three courses selected by the two neighbouring families, there was not a single contribution to the 'five a day';- roast beef and NO veg; each to their own! The pub is otherwise attractive with a good choice of reasonably priced beers and wines and pleasant service. Our final bill for our weekend was incorrect and their ultimate acknowledgement was more begrudging than apologetic which was an unnecessary pity.
