Lovely garden with well laid out children's play area. Between us we had two kids meals (lovely homemade... More

Not too sure I should tell you just how good this is for I want to become a regular and do not want to be told they are fully booked! We have a holiday home nearby and popped in for a meal and suddenly found we went three times in just 10 days. It is really excellent. The car park... More

The Black Dog Inn is a full-service B&B. The rooms are on the second level, first level is the Pub and restaurant. Rooms and bathrooms are recently renovated, very clean, modern and spacious. They do provide drinking water for the rooms since the bathroom water runs off a water softener (okay to brush teeth but not to drink). Beware of... More

We drove passed this pub at lunchtime and decide to stop. For a Saturday it was quiet, one couple inside the pub and a few families outside. Staff were friendly. Inside is a bit old fashioned/lacking character but outside front and back is nice and family friendly. There's a good amount of seating outside around the play area with parasols... More

Our party of four ladies had two en-suite rooms The rooms were modern and clean The beds were comfortable. Even though the rooms are above a pub, we did not hear any noise. Breakfasts were tasty and plentiful. The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The only negatives I can report is that the tap water in the... More
