We bought a voucher for 2 nights B &B & one dinner at a very reasonable price but some of the reviews on Trip Advisor were a little off putting. We had to cancel our original booking owing to illness and the person dealing with me when I rang to cancel was extremely helpful in re-arranging a new date even though it was outside the period originally stated on the offer.
We arrived on Sunday at lunch time and met family for drinks before being shown to our room by the proprietor who was pleasant & helpful all through our stay.
The room was spotless with plenty of towels and soap & shampoo with tea, coffee and chocolates provided. The room was not luxurious by any means and yes it did need some TLC but adequate for our needs as a place to sleep. The bathroom left something to be desired but again it was sufficent to keep clean for 2 nights.
The evening meal was very good and a good choice of menu. I only drank the beer, a local cask ale, which was excellent and all my family party enjoyed their various meals and drinks.
Breakfast on both mornings was superb with cereals, orange juice, fresh tiger loaf bread, and a cooked breakfast of 2 eggs, 2 rashers bacon, 2 sausages, beans, mushrooms & plum tomato with tea or coffee.
This pub provides accomodation which welcomes people with dogs as can be seen by the number of people who had them both in the bar (not the restaurant area) and in the bedrooms of some of those staying.
As a matter of interest we were in room 3 and are quite amused and astounded by the earlier comments made by a previous visitor.
I have been a mystery guest visitor for hotels for many years and found his one to be good value for the price and spotlessly clean.
