We stayed over the weekend of a friend's wedding. Aesthetically, the pub and rooms were lovely, and supper on the first night was excellent. Full breakfast was cooked to order, fresh and filling, though a little more in the way of cereal or even porridge would have been appreciated. Even more so, even a single piece of fruit either in the room or with breakfast would have been thoughtful. Sandwiches ordered the following day were fairly basic and I was perhaps not unreasonably surprised to be charged £10 for two small egg mayonnaise portions stretching just shy of two slices of bread!
Generally, the stay was fine, but the staff were on several occasions less than helpful; the first night, enquiries about another of our party whose flight into the country had been delayed were met with unyielding adhesion to a set locking up time beyond which one of us would have to stay up to deliver her room key. Only one of the five or six bedrooms occupied by our party were serviced on the second day, meaning that we returned late after the wedding reception to wet towels and unwashed cups, and the explanation that we were at fault for not leaving our keys (despite our aiming to save the staff waiting up for us, and our not receiving any instruction about leaving them) was at best tenuous.
