My wife and I stayed one night for a good walk, a nice dinner and a few drinks without having to worry about driving home. Paid £57 for room 8 which included a continental breakfast. Room was cold and heating was off. Apart from a towel rail warmer (which was also switched off) there was no way of turning on the heating. The window was open and would not close. It had been this way for weeks as the net curtains were dirty as a result of the draft. I managed to close it but then again, I nearly had to rip it off the frame in order to achieve this. The room was OK but it was not really clean. The shower tray had some black mould around it and the throw over sheet was soiled (I will leave it to your imagination as to what it was soiled with!). The bed sheets were clean and the bed was comfortable, however, we had to leave at 5:30am as we could not sleep a wink. Every 10 minutes some kind of motor would kick in. I think it may be a water pump? Heavy trucks drive past this pub all night so it is quite noisy (can't imagine what it would have been like if I had not managed to close the window!). The pub food is ok, that is, when you find something on the menu that they have in stock. I visited the Boat in near Doncaster recently of which is in the same chain (Vintage Inn). My experience there was that they did not have all of the menu available. My first question was; "Is all of the menu available?" I was told "Yes it is". So I ordered the Sirloin Steak. At which point the member of staff replied "Oh sorry there is no Sirloin Steak tonight" I did not make a fuss. It was only later when another couple sat at a table nearby when I noted that they ordered 3 items which were not available. Soup, Chicken and finally when they ordered their sweet they were told that they had no cream. This was a Monday night and very quiet. Now let's think about this for a minute. Sirloin Steak, Chicken, Soup and Cream. Mmmmm pretty hard to come by (NOT) and seasonal? I did not complain on the night as the young girl that served was pleasant enough and I am sure she was not responsible for the management of this establishment. Looked at some of the other reviews and can only say that this place is inconsistent to say the least. Would I stay here again? Only if I had broken down out side with no RAC cover! Good luck, if our experience is anything to go by you may need it!
