Stopped here a few times now. Very nice place, food good staff great. The roast chickens are nice and tasty with the different spices on and very good value. The bedrooms are nice and are also very clean. Lovely place will be back again.

Looks lovely from the outside and is lovely inside. Ample parking. Some difficulty getting out of the car park at busy times if turning right - 40mph road near a bend. Women's toilets - only two - rather squashed! Seating outside at front over looking the main road so not sure about the pleasure in that. Seating outside also at... More

This is a super place and extremely reasonably priced. I booked two rooms, both of which were exceptionally clean, well-appointed and very comfortable. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food in the restaurant is very good and breakfast was excellent.

Was in area for a food fair. Called in here, never been before so had no expectations. Was fairly quiet and was served quickly. Adrian who served us was a star. Great menu and the food was served quickly, lovely and tastey. Highly recommended. Xx

A pleasant setting, nice outdoor area, but 1hour is along time to wait for 1 pie and chips and 1 scampi and chips. When it did finally arrive I couldn't complain about the food - perfectly acceptable pub grub.
