Reviewed February 26, 2012

Stayed in the premier inn across the road, booked a table in the afternoon, had to eat on the bar not the restaurant, Same menu as we had in a different pub the night before! Food was eatable but not exciting.

Room Tip: If you go on a Saturday night, expect to be busy.

2 for £10 deal - you think it'll just be the average fare. Not at the Cocked Hat! The meals are huge - I had 2 large chicken breasts in my chicken burger. The chips were cooked to perfection. Friend had New York BBQ chicken - again a large portion and reported to be extremely tasty. Not a microwave in sight!

Drinks are overpriced for the location of the pub - glass of pepsi and a Crabbies cost over £5, but would return for the food - and get a glass of tap water to drink...

Room was clean, small, basic; bring your own lighting if you want to read. The bed was so soft it was like sleeping on jelly. I had the worst steak pie ever, soggy microwaved pastry, tasteless mashed potato, and about six peas. When I complained I was told management policy was at fault! The breakfast was no more than average. Overall, terrible value; the website said a double room was £35, the charge was £86 inc dinner and breakfast, reduced from £116 when they tried to charge again for items paid in cash. Not a happy experience; apparently the locals don't go there - I wish I had known in advance.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

To cheap I thought. I arrived at 2005hrs. Too late but the receptionist was happy to let me in. The room was basic. It was clean, tidy and had all I needed including warmth. Also it was quiet. For the price exceptional.

Convenient location whilst we stayed overnight at the Premier Inn. Also near a few supermarket, McDonalds and TGI Friday.
Good service provided by friendly staff. A variety of meal deals were available at very reasonable prices i.e. 2 meals for £10. We opted for a fish feast £8.79 each which was enormous and tasty.
Free wifi access and Sky television available.
There was a good atmosphere and the pub/restaurant was busy.
Rooms were available at excellent rates, £34 per night was advertised. We did not stay but would consider if we return to the area.
Thanks

The hotel has just had the rooms refurbished, mine was decorated well and bed was really comfortable and there were no issues with the shower. Free WiFi worked well in the rooms and the pub next door. I ate twice in the pub and on both nights the food was good, hot and not too fussy. staff good, very happy customer

Looks ok from the ouside but not so good from the inside.

The reception closes at 8 pm and the guest have to open the reception door with a key, so this looks like more a guest house than a hotel.

The staff it's friendly, not complaints about it.

The furniture it's old fashion and the illumination it's a bit poor.

The internet access in the room it's poor and the mattress it's not recomended for peopple with back problems (it should have been replaced about 10 years ago)

I booked for 3 nights but left after the 1st night

There's a pub in the hotel it's ok but you'll probably prefer to cross the road and have a meal on Fridays.
