I've stayed here many times in the B&B rooms in a separate building next to the brewery and always had a warm welcome and good stay. The rooms are functional and very clean, with tv and tea making bits and pieces. Bring your own toiletries as only a tiny bar of soap is provided, but enjoy the powerful shower. The 2 top floor rooms are very airy, both with opening skylights that are very welcome on the odd warm evening.
The pub itself is not for those who love juke boxes, gaming machines or nattering on mobiles while others try to relax. Children under 14 aren't allowed in the bar, nor are phones. It is an old fashioned pub with scrubbed wooden tables and popular with those who appreciate a decent pint and place to enjoy it. In the winter the hosts, Jo and Paul, have a log fire roaring away and in the summer the pretty beer garden is at it's best.
Over time I've eaten my way through the limited but very good value menu. There is nothing fancy here, steaks, chilli, huge bacon rolls-good fresh pub grub. The steak I had on my last trip was cooked to perfection and tasted superb, all for around £10. Breakfasts are very good, all freshly prepared while you wait and with good quality ingredients.
If you are looking for a relaxing pint and a bite to eat that won't dent the wallet, then try here.
