We stayed for three nights in mid July. On arrival staff attitude seemed very relaxed, gave us our room key and not a lot else. The room was small but clean and tidy, As another reviewer also commented on, the pillows were very very thin. The bathroom was on the whole clean, not the best shower in the world but adequate enough. We ate at the pub on the Thursday evening and at 8pm most of the food was already sold out. The food was good, but poor value for money regards to the portion sizes. Our room was above the main entrance door, a fire door without a dampner. Between 10.30 and 12.30 other returning guests simply let this door slam and everything in our room rattled. On the Friday night, the doors slammed until 1.30 and we got little sleep for the second night. Saturday night, doors, showers, tv's, talking, you name it, we heard it, until 4.30am. The door was bad enough, but the walls between rooms and thin stud walls and all manner of sound travels. Breakfast was good, on the first day we were told breakfast started at 7am and when we put our order in at 7.30am was told the kitchen was actually closed, however the cook had arrived and would make us something, just this once !
The pub itself is very charming, the atmosphere seemed good, the food on the whole was good, however, this is a very noisy place to stay and in our opinion does not seem to focus enough on it's guest accomodation, you are left with the feeling that the B & B is an ancillary service rather than it's main purpose.
