We really enjoyed our break at the Lister Arms. We were especially impressed with the food. It was very tasty, unpretentious and yet imaginative. For example the shepherds pie had a topping of sweet potato, and you could really taste the ale in the beef and ale pie. On the downside you were required to order at the bar and queue was very long, for both the initial order and the desert. We felt that at the prices charged it wouldn't be unreasonable for the waiting staff to take the orders.
We found our room very pleasant, it overlooked the green and had everything we needed. Also staff happily supplied fresh milk on request for the tea in the room. I would agree with an earlier review that the mattress was a little thin on padding, but it was ok. If you are an early-to-bed type I also would suggest a room away from above the pub entrance; I was disturbed by people leaving about 12 and staff going to their rooms above ours at 1am, but I'm a light sleeper, my partner slept through it all!
The room was tastefully furnished and decorated; there are interesting and lovely paintings and prints throughout the Inn. There was a comfy pair of armchairs by the window which we enjoyed sitting in, watching the world go by.
All in all I would thoroughly recommend this place. And if you book midweek out of high season it is very good value for money.
