We booked a 3 night weekend stay so were able to take advantage of a good deal. Cannot praise the staff enough from the moment we arrived to when we left. Super friendly, super helpful - nothing is too much trouble. Our room was large and well appointed and the bathroom was HUGE with a deep roll top bath. VERY comfortable and big bed. Our only observations - one of which we pointed out when we left - a small easy chair would have been nice and also for the ladies, a magnifying mirror in the bathroom
. As other people have said it it is bit noisy from the street in the wee small hours but then you are very central. We did not hear any noise from the bar even though we were directly above it. Food is very good especially the fish supper served in newspaper. Cooked Breakfast was plentiful, not a huge choice of other things but what there is is extremely good. Very well stocked bar - found gins I had never heard of before!
We can highly recommend this pub come boutique hotel - you won't be disappointed!! Who needs faceless chain hotels when you can have quality and individuality like this !
