Booked in for a pre Valentine night; Shown to our room & I noted the door handles were missing & the loo seat was partly detached. Initially shown a somewhat drab dinner table which was in a draft from the unlit fireplace.
This was changed to one much more congenial. We had an excellent evening meal in pleasant surroundings.
Went to bed to find that the bed was just awful. It was unsupportive, so one either rolled out sideways or else vanished into the central "sink hole".! Considered putting the mattress directly upon the floor, but compromised with stuffing pillows under.
Hence it is difficult to recommend a stay & many other reviews comment upon cleanliness & the beds. What a pity as it is a well known Pub & could be so much better.
Yes, I did mention the defects to management, but have yet to see any recompense which was mentioned.

They'll discover the pub is full of period charm, cosy nooks and roaring log-fires, and there's an alfresco dining area perfect for soaking up the British summer.Walkers will find it's a great base for exploring the Chiltern Hills, while families can burn off some energy at treetop adventure park Go Ape, or let their imagination wander through the nearby Roald Dahl Children's Gallery. ... more less
