We stayed in a 'dog' room and were warned on booking that it was above the bar. Having stayed in several pubs and inns around England above bars, we thought we knew what to expect. I asked how bad it was and was told it should be not bad as there was no live music.
Upon check-in, I had my doubts but the room was very large and comfortable, and there was some effort made at cleanliness and nice decoration. After a quiet start when we went to bed about 10, then the jukebox throbbed like it was in our room, people screeching and yelling outside and in until 1 a.m., and the dog and I didn't sleep a wink, although I think :my husband and son eventually got to sleep. I was told by staff the next day that the owner said it had been a very quiet night in the bar! We checked out early, and as were leaving, we saw a sign that they had a live band that night in the function room!!! Thank god we didn't stay the second night! Do not stay here unless you want to party with the locals.
