Could be so much better with not much effort. Room 2 was cold and needing a coat of paint and a good clean especially in bathroom. Heating was turned off after pub closed on one of the coldest nights of the year, not great. Could hear every word the man said in the room next door and the creaking floorboards... More

The room was clean, the door locked and there was off-road parking. The bedside light and TV control didn't work, but were fixed. There was no wifi outside of the main building, which is where rooms 6&7 are. The bed is knackered; the springs gave out long ago. The meal was ok but the 'beer battered cod' had come from... More

Room was clean but no hot shower in the morning, it was barely warm. Breakfast was very nice overall, coffee wasn't upto much for my taste and sausage could of been cook a... More

Lovely friendly welcome from the staff and tasty breakfast with lots of variety. Room was warm and comfortable but needs a new mattress as it has sunk and a dust! The bathroom shower pressure was poor and little things like the toilet seat not staying up on its own need addressing. Fine stay but won't be back.

Room is basically a converted shed, mattress had more lumps and bumps than a camels back which squeaked like a rusty wheel every time you moved. I'm not tall but my feet were dangling off the end of the bed like Bigfoot. Lots of noise coming from the kitchen door slamming constantly all night which kept me up to the... More

The manager or owner need to take the time to sleep in room No.1. The bed was hard and uncomfortable and the pillows like bricks. We stayed 2 nights and were told on check in that if we wanted clean towels to leave them on the shower floor, which we did. On showering the following morning found the towels left... More

Very brief stay of 2 nights and Chris,a Staff member helped me out no end. The rooms were clean and tidy with a nice smell of fresh linen. We had a curry from the adjoining curry house,which was great,tasty and value for money. Make sure you say to the waiting staff that you are wanting the 'Banquet Menu' deal if... More

The room we had was very basic, but appeared ok for a few nights. However, the bed was unbelievably uncomfortable, with a mattress that needed replacing a long time ago. The bathroom was dirty with spiders webs (and spiders) and the shower filthy. The shower head had clearly never been cleaned. The bar was rough and ready, though the staff... More

Visited here purely by chance as struggled to find any local pub doing decent food on Sat evening. It is a rough and ready pub that does Indian food in the evening. The staff are OK and needed prompting when to take order etc. Food arrived piping hot and was delicious and more than enough to eat. Flavours great and... More
