Me and my wife stayed here for a couple of nights and were incredibly impressed with the whole package.
After a friendly welcome from the owners (Ivor and Joanne), we were shown to our room, which was magnificent! Very spacious and clean, with all the necessary mod-cons missing from many B&Bs these days. The room was based in a separate building from the Inn, but easy access to the pub was always there when a pint was needed! Had a very private feel to it.
The pub served a good selection of alcohols, and Ivor (the landlord) couldn't be friendlier. What makes a nice touch is the pubs' regulars, who were extremely friendly and could offer a good chat (but most certainly did NOT pester!). The food (which I hear is new) was fabulous! Traditional pub grub with the exception of that the "grub" was of very high quality.
The village setting is very quaint. Lound is a beautiful village with friendly faces everywhere. There are many places to go if you fancy going for walks and Retford is a short 5 minute drive away. It is definitely a dog walkers paradise!
Definitely a place worth a visit if you are in the area!
