Kerry and all the other staff were very friendly, down-to-earth and helpful. They made my girlfriend and I very welcome. The pub itself has a good atmosphere, and we got excellent breakfasts. The rooms themselves were 'ok' but in need of some TLC before they meet the standard you'd expect for the price.

Stayed here as part of a wedding party. Rooms and facilities are adequate with the plumbing and decor being a bit tired, probably due to lack of investement by the pubco owning the place. Staff were friendly and efficient, service was excellent and the pub/restaurant offered plenty of choice at reasonable prices.
