My first stay at the Diamond will not be my last. The rooms which are in an out building are superbly clean and well appointed with a luxurious shower. Breakfast has hearty and very well cooked. All in all a great stay marred only by non operational wifi in the room.

We recently came to the diamond inn for a birthday party! Lovely little function room with friendly staff! Only thing I would say was we had to wait for the bottle mixers every time we went to the bar but apart from that all was good!

Comfortable ensuite room in the annexe, which meant we weren't disturbed by the very busy weekend bar patrons. Very adequate lunch menu, all items £5. The goat's cheese and beetroot tart was excellent. No evening meals at the weekend, but recommend Fratellis Italian, a three minute walk away. Good cooked breakfast served with a smile. A most pleasant stay.

We stayed bed and breakfast and could not fault the breakfast. The staff were extremely attentive. The night of the wedding was in the private function room. It was an excellent night.

We hired the room upstairs for my daughters christening and the staff could not have been more accommodating, the food was lovely and the empty plates were replenished all afternoon, and the balcony was great to use when the sun came out. I would definitely book again - thank you! 😃
