Arrived late lunchtime on Friday and nothing was too much trouble. Ordered steak and onion sandwich which was so tender. Served with chips and salad for under a tenner. Drink prices reasonable -...

Really lovely stay here, the bedroom had plenty of room and comfortable bed. The meal in the Pub was excellent could recommend either the beef and Stilton pie or the burger are good too. Will definitely stay here again.

Great place..beautiful views and nice people and food. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. We were in the annex and it was so peaceful and secluded. The staff were very attentitive during our evening meal, making sure we were happy with our food and checking whether more drinks were wanted. Would definately visit again 😊

Second time I have stayed here. A lovely find. Relaxed atmosphere,great ales and good food at a reasonable price. Friendly locals. Rooms in courtyard small but nicely furnished. Great breakfast and great staff. All for under £100 a night. Family room not big enough. Only ok for 2 max.

My mother, me and my three children decided to stay over night here to extend a day at the coast. A beautiful 18th century building which apart from the modern but fitting decor still retains most original features and had a fabulous historical atmosphere. It was a cold rainy evening when we arrived so the log burning fire and friendly... More

After the spectacular unpleasantness we experienced in the hotel where we stayed the previous night, The Willoughby Arms was an oasis of calm, friendliness and welcome. Large, well appointed rooms. Lovely and seemingly freshly renovated bathrooms. We all had a great night here. Super breakfast, where we are all well looked after. Good quality pints downstairs in the bar, all... More
