I stayed here in a compact double room for one night in November 2013. The staff on reception and the bar/restaurant area were very nice and welcoming. They were quick to help and give advice. I had drinks at the bar which were fine and there are a large selection of different wines in the shop. Unfortunately I am not a connoisseur so didn't buy anything but the prices seemed reasonable and staff gave recommendations. I ate an evening meal in the restaurant. There is a large choice available and they are reasonably priced. I opted for cheddar rarebit for starters which was very tasty. I had lamb shank on a bed of garlic mash with seasonable veg. The meat was cooked well and tasty. The mash was slightly bland and tasted quite processed like instant mash. The veg was fine. For dessert I ate chocolate orange bread and butter pudding with clotted cream. It was scrumptious but by then I was pretty stuffed so couldn't finish. The room was quite basic yet comfortable. The downside was the overwhelming heat (in November!) despite no heating on. Could do with air con. I had to open a window but I was placed under the kitchen which was very noisy. Pans and cupboards being slammed, people talking loudly, banging and general noise. I wouldn't have been so bothered but I was tired after a long drive and had an early start so was quite annoyed. I didn't complain being typically English but would have done if it had continued much longer. The breakfast was lovely I had full English, with coffee and brown toast. Can't complain at that. So in summary it was a nice place to stay, not spectacular but not bad either. Good value for money overall.
