We went to the New Orleans for a drink and maybe stay on for dinner, the service was poor and the beers were all under the wrong taps very confusing.
The menu was basic and expensive for what was on offer so we moved on to the tap which was a much better experience.

We decided to have breakfast at the New Orleans Hotel and it was great. The was quite a cold morning and they have the fire roaring away which kept us nice and warm. Really nice and quiet place to have brekfast. I didn't realise until we went in that they had accommodation to offer as well which would have been good to have known beforehand. Maybe next time.

Nicely cooked breakfast - just delicious. We arrived to "The New Orleans Hotel" on a chilly morning in February (yes, on a freezing summer morning). The service was outstanding - very efficient and friendly. We sat there in front of the open fireplace, read some newspapers and watched TV. We had some Eggs Benedict with mushrooms, smoked salmon and spinach. Very tasty. Coffee and hot chocolates were very good. Chatting to the staff was easy and pleasant. We liked it there so much so we went to the New Orleans again on our Easter holiday in April. And again, we just loved that cosy place.

We stayed here over Easter and ate here 3 out 4 nights.
In a town that has lots of eateries, thats saying something.
I had roast Pork twice!, Chower another and Blue Cod the last night.
The portions were big, the service was relaxed and laid back.
Just what you would expect when paying pub prices.
Jugs of Ale and an extensive wine list were also on offer.
Its a really cool pub with lots of noise, banter and locals.
Next time we are in town we know where we will eat and sleep again!
