A friendly local named Paul made us feel very... More

Warm welcome from Jules who saved the day with his knowledge of fishing in the area. Friendly staff and delicious food. Dog friendly. Can recommend the Real Ale especially sitting out on the sunny terrace.

Stayed one night whilst away on business. Quaint old hotel and pub with real character. Bendy walls and floors but added to the character. Really friendly and welcoming staff, nice food and a very comfortable bed and clean linen. No shower in room but had very enjoyable bath!
