“Cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Stayed here for the Whittlesey Strawbear weekend. Had a nice, clean, basic en suite room. Very reasonably priced. We are veggie so didn't take advantage of the large cooked breakfasts which appeared very generous. Chef was happy to make us what we wanted to accommodate unusual diet (veggie gluten free - took my own bread). Friendly staff. It was nice and quiet when we stayed and we got a good nights sleep - I guess that is dependent on other guests. Would be happy to stay there again - it ain't luxury, but they don't charge luxury prices either. Breakfast is served in the bar.

Went in a party of 11.Landlord wanted to give us the rooms he wanted rather than rooms booked.Therefore 2 rooms not ready.2 hrs later managed to get in final room.Beer/Lager/Cider rubbish.Feeling that breakfasts had been cooked the night previous and warmed up in microwave. Burgular alarm went off during night and owner did not seem to want to come and reset it.All in all a disaster,shall not be hurrying back!

Single person, business overnight - last minute. 24th October 2012. No customers in pub or hotel on arrival at 2000hurs. Indifferent reception. Room smelt slightly of damp on entry that increased when warm and traced to foul carpet. Otherwise ok, but then left at 2400 because of bites from bedbugs. Apparently on it's way downhill - avoid.

I stayed here the night before my skydive at north London parachute centre, it is about 25 minutes drive. The pub is very traditional and the staff were the most friendly welcoming people I have met! The rooms are very nice, plenty of space with coffee and tea making facilities, it is also next to a little river which is nice to go and sit by with your drink from the bar, would deffinately recommend staying here, cheap and cheerful!
