The inn is right on the main road so there is traffic noise, especially if you are in a room at the front. Lots of character and reputedly haunted! The inn has been recently recarpeted and new curtains. Also has a well equipped gym and a jacuzzi, both of which are a bit incongruous really and do not appear to... More

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your feedback. With reference to the gym & spa, it is constantly in use by residents who elect to use it and certainly not 'incongruous'. There is a huge poster outside the building advertising and showing the facilities and it is displayed on our website. One family booked the Inn exclusively for the use of... More

I was really surprised to see the negative reviews on here after a lovely break in the Inn. The rooms were homely and clean and the staff and management were all very chatty and helpful. Breakfast was just right - good sized full English without overdoing things. Access was great to local places being just off the A39 - heard... More

I've made a reservation through booking, in the reservation i've informed them of my dog's presence and their answer was a charge of 12,5 pounds each, so i've canceled the reservation in less than 24 our, and they took the entire payment in any case, and now after 2 months I'm still struggling to have my money back, cancellation was...

Dear Manuela, Our reservation policy states that cancellations must be made 48 hours prior to arrival and is very clearly stated on your paperwork terms and conditions. You had only elected to cancel your booking after you discovered (also stated on your paperwork) that we do implement a pet charge of £12.00 which is quite reasonable considering that other local...

Staff very rude, room shabby and unclean. Whiskers in sink. Kettle broken in room. Could be lovely with some TLC and staff with people skills. Problems high lighted but not listened to as staff too dismissive and kept saying that management were on holiday ! Not informed of any facilities, breakfast time etc on check in

Dear Lynn, I have consulted our staff and the Designated Premises Supervisor who was actually on site with you. She has worked here over 6 years and I do trust her management tasking. However, there were actually complaints received from other guests regarding your abrasive attitude toward staff and extreme demanding behaviour. Further, you neglected to fully pay what was...

Thank you for a lovely two days, I stayed with my daughter Friday and Saturday and I wanted to say how lovely the place is and full of character. I could just imagine the number of people who have stayed there before us. Apparently it is from the 1620s and the landlady has continued to preserve the heritage. The room... More

This pub is conveniently situated, albeit on a busy road, and could be a useful stopping place. However it is rather shabby and needs upgrading. Having said that the room we had was clean and neat but was let down by the lack of lighting make it difficult to read. It was very small but the price was wasn't. The... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you felt disappointed by our personalised service.

Our room was directly over what sounded like a very noisy generator that kept us awake all night. In the morning we were told it was the cellar cooler and we could have asked for it to be turned off!
