“new manager”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We have been to the pub/hotel many times. A lovely village setting over looking the common and cricket pitch. The pub and restaurant side of things are very nice. The hotel has a new manager who is trying to sort out many problems with that side of the operation. Others have mentioned some of the hotel rooms need updating. The problem is the hotel is within a commute of London and also near to the Harry potter experience, thus always very busy, as is every other establishment like it in the region. I feel that the chain see little need for improvement when the cash is flowing in and until recently not bothered updating rooms. We had the four poster bedroom. The bed itself was a bed with four posts, no drapping etc and the bathroom was small, shower was less than good and the ceiling badly stained where water was coming through from the above room. This is billed as one of the premier rooms in the hotel. But a new manager had been appointed and i am sure will address these problems given the right budget to play with. We have stayed in other rooms in the hotel which have been alot better.

Room Tip: wouldnt bother with the four poster.

Having read some of the previous reviews I was a bit worried about what to expect. All I can say is they must have stayed at a different hotel. The hotel is gorgeous in a beautiful location. The staff were all really cheerful, friendly and helpful. Large room with lovely decor and very clean, bathroom could do with an update but it was spotless. We ate in the restaurant the food was lovely and the portions a good size, hubby had to cancel his dessert as he was full after his main. The service was excellent. Overall a great hotel which is good value for money. I would stay there again

Stayed one night in double room. On arrival no one at reception. Rang buzzer as note left saying they may be busy. Eventually staff came. No explanation given about check out details, had to ask. No information given about breakfast times or location. We found this info in the room. The room was pleasant. During the night all you could hear was intermittent rumbling noise coming from the corridor. Bar closes at 11, staff leave shortly after so no late bar for 'hotel' guests. Bar wait poor. Breakfast dis organised. No guidance to a table, just help yourself! No glasses for juice, juices run out. No cups or tea pot lids! Had to ask. Toast comes with your cooked breakfast (long wait for cooked breakfast). Staff dont ask if everything is OK, you are just left to get on with it! No fresh coffee seen, just in ready made pots.Cooked breakfast needs improving, the tiniest drop of baked beans on the plate, was not tasty. Overall a lovely location but staff do not appear happy or helpful. The building itself is lovely but needs updating , looks tired. Bed comfortable and room clean. Car park with sufficient spaces. Beautiful location.

I have stayed here many times, but I have to say that our stay this time was very good and the staff were amazing. This is a lovely location - facing the common with plenty of outside seating for those sunny days. Great menu choices - good food (probably not as large portions as before but very good quality) but the service and genuine hospitality of the staff here made this a very enjoyable experience.

Excellent value for money for an overnight stay, great value food and good value drinks.

And fabulous staff!! Well worth a visit..

Was recommended this pub by a colleague on our way to Sandown Park Surrey. I have the lasagne and I have to say that it was one of the most delicious I have tasted in a while. My colleague had the steak and ale pie and again it looked superb, nice ambience and facilities, very good staff, deco recommend this place if you are in the area.

Delighted to say that when I booked for a meal and mentioned previous iffy reviews the man answering phone said he had just taken over as new manager and things would be better and they were- much better than when I went a few years ago.
Lovely Sunday roasts though my salmon was overdone as were my broad beans. My starter which was meant to be stuffed mushrooms simply was mushrooms on half a bagel!!!
However fudge choc cake was good and service was good and in view of fears I had, the meal was good. The waitresses were attentive and alert. Maybe they are better trained but I noticed them scanning the tables to check we were all ok. They were unobtrusive and pleasant.
THE STARTER AS ABOVE NEEDS TO BE FIXED. but other than that not much else to improve.

I booked this at late notice on late rooms.net as wanted an overnight stay after a trip to whipsnade. I was pleasantly surprised with how nice the place was considering some of the reviews I read on here. The room (double deluxe) was very cosy, nice big bed and the bathroom was in good condition. Very welcoming surroundings. We ate at the pub in the evening, I had the scallops to start followed by the burger and my partner had duck wings followed by the lamb. The food was a good standard and the pub was a pleasant place to sit for the evening. If I had one improvement the waiting service seemed slow, they seemed short staffed. The pub is in a nice location overlooking a cricket green so had a walk around there to walk off the food. A very nice place for a very reasonable price. Would have no hesitation in staying there again!
