Stayed at the Inn for two nights with my wife, price was good and the rooms were clean and tidy, Tiny made us feel very welcome. Full English breakfast included. Good start to the day. We would use the Inn again so for me the place was perfect.

The quality of our dinner when it eventually arrived was okay but served on small plates therefore you don't receive as much food as...
