We stayed for two nights at the Old Lock Up and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The made to order full english breakfasts are fantastic (proper sausages and black pudding. The rooms are lovely with some great antique furniture to catch the eye. Showers could do with improving as they aren't particularly powerful. Tim (the owner) was very helpful throughout the whole stay, recommending a cracking walking, organising champagne in the room for our arrival ( it was a romantic getaway), and cooking up a awesome 3 course dinner in which he served a great chocolate dessert at our request. I left my phone charger there and he even posted it back to me, lovely chap, great place to stay!
