We visited on the 2 Nd of February as we were going to Wetherby races.The pub was under new management.I had rang to confirm that we could be in our room by 10.30 which was apparently was fine.On arrival we were told that our room was not ready and we would have to get changed in a much smaller,cramped room.We had a nice day at the races and returned for a meal in the pubs restaurant,a restaurant that we had eaten in before and had really enjoyed.We were given a menu which contained a choice of about only 10 meals,which were very basic.We were also told that there was no wine list.The waitress brought us a bottle of wine that she said she liked.It was put on the table ,unpoured and without us trying it.The meals that we had were nice but there was not very much and they were served by a young lady who seemed as though she did not particularly want to be there.We ordered 2 Irish coffees. They were served with coffee and froth running down the outsides.The waitress threw a napkin on the table and said", i,VE BROUGHT YOU THIS TO WIPE THEM WITH."...We had booked the room with the four poster bed. The room was very dark and basic. There was a 1970,s trouser press and a kettle which needed an extension lead to reach the socket.The heating was on full blast and you could not open the windows.There was no handle on the inside of the toilet door so you had to sit with your foot on the door to contain your modesty.The shower was very small and all the tiles were covered in mould.needless to say I had the quickest shower I have ever had.It is a very old building and everything creaks especially the antiquated four poster which had tie backs missing and an inch of dust on the top.We were the only people having breakfast and had been seated next to a scolding hot radiator, which made me nearly pass out.The full English we had had been cooked by the lady new owner.The meal looked fine but was served on freezing cold plates unlike the radiator.There is nothing worse than mushrooms and black pudding on cold plates.We eat a small amount and went to pack.The establishment needs a lot of work and money spending on it to bring it any where near scratch and personally I do not think that the new owners will do this or are up to this.A bed and breakfast to keep away from until it is seriously revamped.
