Called in and bought drinks at the bar then ordered food with a rather disinterested young man, overheard two tables who both had wrong orders delivered. After about half an hour we asked what had happened to our food was told it was on its way from the kitchen. Soon after a young lady came to ask us if we...

Having just returned from the Mortal Man, I would like to say, from being ,met by Helen, who was standing in for Gary, what a warm welcome, we were shown around the hotel, then to our room, which was lovely warm and cosy, with an amazing view. The bar, well stocked with ciders, ales and anything else the heart desires,...

I was a little worried initially as there was some disinterest when booking and I had to remind them for a confirmation email. However when we arrived we had a drink in the bar before heading off for walk before check in. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the beer and the cider were good and they welcomed my...

We did not stay overnight as the booking info was misleading and three sites offered three different rates. The variances were nigh. I tried to book the cheapest and it would not complete, so we stayed elsewhere. Having stayed at The Mortal Man some years ago we decided to again eat there as we recall the food being particularly good...

Breakfast you had to pay an extra £5 for a cooked breakfast . Continental was included but this was just cereal and toast. the pub itself is very nice with open fires...

We visited the Mortal Man for dinner on New Years Eve. The food was absolutely fantastic, in fact we all said that it was the best meal we'd out ever! The pub itself was busy, but everything about the meal, service, atmosphere was fantastic.

Stayed in holiday cottage next to this pub and went there on first night for dinner. Pub was a bit weird, very dirty but the worst was the food. I'm sure everything is bought in, my main of chicken Kiev was utterly rank. The waitress (think could have been the landlady) asked how it was when coming to clear table,...

We travelled from kingswinford in the West midlands for 3 days away. The building is beautifully set within peaceful hills & has a lovely mature garden .Inside is traditionally furnished in keeping with the age of the property. The bar & lounge boasts 4 lovely open fires. The staff were friendly, chatty & attentive. The lounge & our bedroom overlooked...
