A large group of us have stayed at this hotel over the past 2 years and have always received a friendly, warm and welcoming reception from the owners. However, last weekend, the owners were apparently away on holiday and on arrival we were greeted by a not so friendly, warm or welcoming reception and in fact the first words that...

Went here 6 weeks ago for a family funeral in the area. Took my 80 year old Mum. We were given rather lovely rooms and they made my Mum feel very special indeed. 150% for service! Rooms were great, food was awesome and the gardens are really special. There is a large stream running down at the bottom of the...

Called in here for dinner around 7:00pm on a weekday. The inside is a little tired but we sat in the very nice garden. The lad behind the bar (Daz) was rushed off his feet serving beer, taking orders, taking food out and clearing tables but he did a stellar job, was cheerful and never stopped moving. Chicken and ham...

The beer garden of this pub is fantastic, we always make sure to go and sit in the sun with a drink whenever we're up. Always (surprisingly) quiet, more often than not we're in there on our own with the dog. It overlooks the river and is quiet despite being on a busy road. Narrow range of lagers but it...

If you are not a big eater this may not be the ideal place for you to eat. Their portions are huge! Good wholesome food. If the weather is nice, sit out in the garden by the river. Lovely and very peaceful. Great stop after a day of walking. Friendly service.
