I stayed at The Pied Bull 24th Nov 2009 for 2 nights B&B.

My room was warm, clean, constant hot water, a good size & had every thing you hope to expect (but do not always get). At the price I was not expecting too much & was more than pleased with what I got. This is not to imply I am used to staying in rubbish places, just that given the location, the history, the period features this place is a bargain.

The staff are wonderful - customer service at its best.

The inclusive breakfast was freshly cooked - full English, fried bread, hash brown, sausage, tomatoe, beans, bacon & fried egg with toast. Could have had cereal as well.

They also serve excellent food during the day & evening. The regulars rightly recommended eating there for quality, taste & value. The menu is comprehensive - all tastes catered for.

Give this place a go.

A very central location. Old pub with lots of interesting facts about the pub age and the fact that it is haunted!! Friendly and helpful staff. Only enough car parking for 4 cars at a cost of £10 per car per night (in the back yard of the hotel)!! Good food and reasonably priced. The main problem we all had were the beds, lets the accomodation down badly. The beds were like boards, rock hard and you could feel every spring. A past review stated that the beds were on order but sadly had not arrived in time for our weekend. Would definately stay there again but would make sure the new beds had arrived first!!

We stayed here for the races and the zoo. When we arrived had to wait for staff to give us rooms keys as they where serving food in the bar. Then we had to find our own room which was no hardship but it would have been nice to have been shown.

Breakfast was between 08.00 and 09.00 and was very limited (cereal and full english) and when we asked for more toast they said the allocated 1 slice per person!!!

The room was tatty and extremelly hot which made for an uncomfortable night sleep. As for the shower......it would not stay in the holder on the wall and would not turn off properly so all night we had the sound of running water.

We needed to change for the races and before we had finished getting ready we where told to leave our room otherwise they would not make the bed etc.

Our trip was for 3 nights and on the final night they where doing building work under our room.....we had drills and saws going from 22.30 until early hours of the morning. This made for no sleep (but guess who was first for breakfast) and no one in the hotel offered any explantion.

There were two members of staff that we cann't fault but as for the rest I would not stay there again.

This is the worst nights sleep I have ever had in hotel, B&B etc. The pub has a lot of good things going for it great location, lovely building, nice strong shower however there is a big BIG problem.

The bed was so awful that we unable to manage more than a few hours sleep in total despite being tired and going to bed early.

What riled is that when we complained they fully admitted that they knew about the problem 'had mattresses on order' but were willing to offer us nothing over and above a meaningless apology. Had I not been so tired I may have pushed it further.

I would advise any friend not to stay there.
