Had to stay here for 3 nights in December whilst visiting family nearby. Room was basic and breakfast was bland. This would have been OK if staff had been friendly but they were offhand throughout the stay. All this for more than we ended up staying for a London hotel!

Arrived Christmas Day at 1pm for dinner and waited a further hour before we received any thing. Was asked twice by waiting staff if we had had any food before we were served the starter. Then waited again until we were fed up - no not with food - around another 30 mins - It took a complaint to the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights when we attended a bonfire party a few hundred yards away so it was very handy. Unfortunately we arrived on a very wet night and the main road and car park were flooded. Our room was in the new wing and furnished in the modern minimalistic style.. Looked good but a few... More

Have stopped at the Bickford Arms on two occasions. In June 2015 the service was not great - long wait for a pre-booked early breakfast. In August 2015 - new staff - service much better. Rooms are all clean, tidy and functional. Good value. Nice bar area and pub grub

With an excellent selection of real ales and home made meals makes for a cosy friendly place to stop over for a bite to eat. It is dog friendly as they have 2 dogs of their own. A young couple run the pub he is the chef and she is pleasing on the eye 😊 I would highly recommend it... More

We stayed as a last minute half-way stop, chosen on the basis of a Trip-Advisor rating of 4.3. We found this to be an accurate rating. The room was very comfortable, modern conveniences in an older building. The restaurant is a part of the bar - mixing local imbibers with dinner - no complaint. The menu was above average pub...
