Very nicely decorated room with all the usual amenities (coffee, tea, biscuits). For once a decent size tv but most of the channels seemed useless due poor signal. Fair sized bathroom but small shower. Enjoyed 'after arrival' beers and also had our dinner in the restaurant. Very charming, historic surroundings. Excellent breakfast, cooked to a choice on breakfast menu. A... More

Despite being a small (8 rooms) B&B over a Pub I was really impressed with the standard of my room and the food. Mine host, Simon could not do more to make my 2 night stay more welcoming and pleasing. The room was airy and large with an ensuite shower room. I needed to work in the room on one... More

We booked a 1 night stay due to us going to a wedding in the area. Even when we turned up early morning we were welcomed and shown to our room so we could freshen up and relax before heading off for the days event. Room was very clean and had everything you needed for a short stay. Full English... More

Stayed just one night here with an nCrowd deal, on our way up to Durham. Very welcoming staff, and food exceptional! Limited menu included in the deal but I chose smoked haddock risotto for a change. It was fantastic, with lots of smoked haddock and a poached egg on top. The breakfast was one of the best. Whilst my husband... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and once again could not fault either the service or the accommodation. The staff were friendly, efficient and nothing was too much trouble.
