We had a very nice meal the building is very old and quaint and remember to duck your head when you go in. Actually sold gluten free beer! We didn't stay in any of the accommodation... More

Initially booked for one night as part of motorcycling trip but were so impressed that we stayed for two, which we were able to do due to a cancellation. Twin room was large and comfortable and the pub and food in particular, excellent. Good choice of beer and the menu was great with lots of choice. Breakfast and evening meals... More

The condition of the car park, the poor state of the thatch and the external view alone is certainly a detraction........but we went for a Sunday lunch in the restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised - its been nicely modernised and furnished......and the food, and service, was very good. They deserve support and lets hope that this will eventually allow... More

We stayed for 2 nights, the main building is interesting and quaint. The rooms are at the back of the pub in chalets. The rooms are large with good shower rooms, clean and tidy but could do with a carpet refresh. The breakfast is very good, well cooked and plentiful. The bar meals are very good served by helpful staff.... More
