Not too far from the Abbey and the garden. I spent a night in the superior room and it exceeded any expectations. I was escorted to my room which was beautifully decorated, beyond spacious with a super-king bed and a great bath as well. Spotlessly clean. The staff were incredibly friendly and chatty. The breakfast in the morning was complimentary... More

What a wonderful find, we stayed here in our beautifully renovated loft room and wished we could have stayed longer. We had dinner the first night here and it was lovely as was both our breakfasts. The staff were fantastic and looked after us very well. The gorgeous grounds, gardens and Abbey ruins are just across the road and well... More

We were made very welcome by Tom and his team, we did have a problem with the sink tap but Tom got it sorted straight away with a call to there Plummer who attended on a Sunday to my amazement. Nothing was too much trouble which made our stay effortless. We stayed for 4 nights and the room was excellent,... More

A nice looking greene king pub in a good location next to the abbey gardens, a good menu and tasty food especially the fish and chips and the portions where massive and great value. Order from the Early bird type menu as the portions are big and great value.

Unlike many Green King pubs this still has all the character and charm you'd look for in an old pub, more should be listed to stop them doing this.
