Have been here twice now and both times have been fantastic, the food is amazing, the choice of drinks are good, staff always on hand and offer a great service. love the decor of this place which may be a bit dated but adds character and makes us want to come back.

I'm here at the moment, the service is slow and the meal is terrible hard to stuff up a pork roast but they have, my wife's meal of poached salmon is so bad after a few mouthfuls she refused to eat it, potatoes hard and uncooked, average salad. Mind you the deserts were OK

Landlady was welcoming and pleasant on arrival but I was soon wishing I'd slept in my car. The room was dirty with mouldy woodwork around windows and the toilet still had stains from previous occupant. In the morning I found the landing door locked so to get down to breakfast I had to go through a fire exit into the... More

Stopped here on the way to Cornwall. Great location being out on its own and the parking easy to access and plenty of spaces. The menu was extensive and reasonably priced, I had a jacket potato with prawns. There was a generous helping of prawns and a delicious side salad. The staff were more than helpful . Glad I stopped... More

Stayed here for one night (Sunday) over the May bank holiday weekend. Rooms are small but perfectly adequate. The bathroom was a little tight to move around in. Wifi throughout was free and good. We didn't have an evening meal but the menu looked pretty good. Full English breakfast in the morning was good. Good coffee as well!! It's a... More

Great little place. Steve (Guv) has a dry sense of humour. His wife, Pauline, is bright and bubbly. The staff throughout were excellent. Emma was superb, knows exactly what and where it's happening. Great food, beautifully cooked steaks. The bar has a good feel in the evenings, all the local guys chatty and helpful. Room was a little small but... More

3 of us stayed here recently as it was close to where we was working on arrival it seemed ok but it was short lived by the very rude owner hoverd around like a fly until we had finished our drinks. The gentleman (if he can be called that) is a down right rude and obnoxious person although his wife... More
