Basically the room was on the small side, the carpet was absolutely disgustingly dirty, black mould in parts of the bathroom, bare plaster on parts of wall, very poor lighting and to top it all the mattress was the lumpiest we have ever had the misfortune to encounter in our travels round the world in the last thirty years.

The bed was clean fresh towels just a shame there was thick dustbin both bedside tables. The shower is very small. The noise from the creaking floor boards when anyone moved in the hall or neighbouring rooms was a bit disconcerting late at night. It sounded as though someone was coming into the room. For a one night staybitvwas fine... More

Standing in beautiful grounds this looked to be a classic place to call for a meal. We were served within minutes of arrival and our meals were ready in good time. Enjoyed the food, the staff were polite and the table and surrounding area was clean so we had no complaints at all. Would visit again without doubt.

We unpacked changed and went to dinner. Service was quick to start with but we were one of first few to be seated. Food was... More

Don't recommend this pub. I asked for the scampi changed to chicken on a combo starter because I am allergic to prawns and some fish. Got a NO. When I said all the other fayre and square pubs do this I still got a rude NO. We go to fayre and square a lot and never encountered this attitude before.

Stayed here one night on 2nd July. Had room 4 which is a large family room. Double bed was in fact two singles pushed together which didn't make for the best nights sleep. Both pub and hotel rooms need freshening up. Horrible stale smell in the stairwell leading up to the rooms. I ate here. The food is typical pub... More

Value for money it was adequate. Unfortunately our room obviously had two radiator leaks in the room as there were buckets and towels on the floor. I was not aware of this on arrival and not sure a wet floor is what you would want. Also the bathroom door was loose and came off. The staff were friendly and efficient... More
