We went on an Amazon 2 night deal. Our room needed refurbishment but was spotlessly clean. The deal included a 3 course meal the first night. Be warn if you are a veggie there is no choice. The starter was soup celery & stilton soup but made with a meat base so no good to a veggie, The main course was vegetable & chick pea tagine, but rather bland. The other person had a starter of ribs which he said was very nice & the main, cumberland sausage which was ok. The waitress was very nice & tried to sort out another starter for the veggie but the chef didn't seem to want make anything else. We didn't eat there again as no point for the vegetarian.
The inn is fine for a base to visit the area.
On our last day at breakfast we felt the landlady was very abrupt with us but seemed fine with the other guests. I can only assume it was because I had a problem in the room & asked for it to be sorted. Also at breakfast the next day I asked for tomatos, mushrooms & egg but didn't get the egg. If they had no eggs an explanation would have been nice.
