Just had a 2 night stay in an executive room. Very large pub with good local atmosphere and good selection of ales and food. Our room was located in the main building and was quite pleasant of a good size large bed, slightly dated decor but clean and comfortable. Bathroom however was very modern grey and white tiles large walk in shower and plenty of amenity kits more than you get in most 4-5* hotels.
We ate on the first night in the restaurant which just happened to be the jazz night. Quite enjoyable even if like me you are not a big Jazz fan, although at the age of 40 I felt like a youngster the average age must have been 75! But all good fun.
Food was pretty good nice choice and plenty of local produce used. I had Duck egg on black pudding for starters which was simple but delicious the wife had whitebait also really good. For mains I had a venison steak which was locally sourced cooked to perfection and served with chips. The chips were the only let down tasting very strongly of oil and being a little soggy. Wife's moussaka was good and my dessert of sticky toffee pudding was lovely. Breakfast was full English on both mornings cooked to order and very good, pastries and cereals,fruits yogurts also available.
Over all I really enjoyed my stay and must say that all the staff we encountered were really polite and friendly, even the cleaner asked us if we enjoyed our stay and wished us a good day! How good is that? Never in my 40 years has that ever happened to me credit to the management as staff customer focus is very good and believe me I'm a fussy git.
So if you are looking for good value accommodation with decent simple local food you would do well to give the Fisherman's Haunt a try.
