We booked an overnight stop here and thought we had breakfast included which wasn’t and that was my fault but to be charged £42 for a small continental and a small English breakfast with coffee was outrageous in our opinion. The room was comfortable although small and the evening menu was short on choice and we were placed on a table away from the dining room in a severe draught. We won’t bother again.
Popped into the Porch House for lunch, staff were super friendly and both ordered the roast chicken lunch. The meal was faultless - and I am fussy (ask my kids). Chicken was cooked perfectly and super moist and served with bread sauces. Stuffing ball was so delicious - I could have eaten 4. Beautifully cooked carrots, green beans, roast potatoes and parsnips and the hugest homemade Yorkshire pudding you have ever seen with lashings of tasty gravy. Everything was perfect, and the service too. I know how hard it is to get all the components in a roast dinner right and at the right temperature but this ticked all my boxes and was well worth the £16.50.
We spent three nights in this quaint old inn and could not fault our stay .All the staff are very helpful especially the young girl who does breakfast times and also served us in the restaurant on our first night , she is an asset to the place and has a sunny smile for everybody each morning and very helpful to . Our room (9) was superb with a free standing bath at one end of the large room which was immaculately clean and had everything you needed,the decor was in keeping with the theme of an old world inn/ hotel that it is .All in all. we had a great time in a lovely place and would recommend anyone reading this to book .see you next year .
Generally excellent service and good food (outstanding breakfast)...we had a standard room which was very small but comfortable ..overall v pleasant stay in a historic old pub despite the Covid restrictions
Stayed overnight to break up a return journey from Cornwall. Though our bed was comfortable, the room was small. There was a high shelf in the wardrobe, but otherwise no where to put any luggage / clothes - no drawers, no bedside tables etc, not even a hook to hang a jacket - no need to unpack!. We showered on arrival, but there was no way of drying our towels - there was no way to switch on the radiators. In the morning we considered phoning reception to ask for fresh towels - but there is no phone in the room. The toilet / shower was small - unable to enter the shower without opening the bathroom door, unable to sit properly on the toilet as it is "shoe horned" between the sink and the cold radiator. Our room (no 10) was next to a courtyard area - twice at night I had to…
