Great pub, its a fantastic place if you like a real ale. I've stayed here twice now and the rooms are great too - a lot of character and a good size. The full cooked breakfast delivered straight to your room is excellent.

We have been here for 2 days coming from Wales for a short holiday. The place is peaceful, incredibly clean, breakfast is gorgeous, local musicians in the pub downstairs excellent. Warmly recommended.

A Great range of drinks, friendly staff, an eclectic mix of customers. The furniture isn't hugely comfy and when we visited the bathrooms needed a very good clean.
