Only stay at the Pied Bull if your standards are as low as theirs.
Apart from being an interesting building in good location, there are no positives. The service was terrible, the room a shabby dissapointment, the price a rip-off and it was obvious that nobody cared.
From check-in by a poor kid with no training, to paying more that the rate being hawked outside because we had booked, to paying another ten pounds to park in an uncovered, unsecured yard with the bins and waiting over half an hour for breakfast when in a hurry, the whole experience was a low-grade rip-off.
The place promotes itself on the historic building and a panelled room with four-poster bed, but unless you pay even more for that, you get a tired room near the kitchen extractors and treatment that veers from obsessively drachonian (signing a H&S and guest behaviour policy, paying in advance and the number of notes in the room folder about what you can't do and when and the punishment for not returning their precious TV remote control) to low-grade ignoring (see yourself up to your room, wait at the bar, wait for breakfast when you have explained that you are in a hurry).
As is too often the case, the place and what it offers are oversold and the delivery so far from adequate that it is a joke. Don't stay there, they won't care.
