There was live music downstairs but the room was quiet. There are several communal rooms downstairs as well as two good sized bar areas. The hotel also has a suite on... More

Dear Anne, Thank you for taking time to write your review and I am sorry that you were not completely satisfied. I am a bit confused as to why they waitress moved you to our rear courtyard, it is usually people from the opposite Public House we ask to move from our tables to make availability for our own guests....

We went here for a week day dinner and had a lovely warm welcome including water and biscuits for our dog. The service was excellent and the staff offered vegan as an option on lots of dishes before I had to ask. Both our meals were lovely and the room had a good atmosphere.
