What a lovely establishment. We stayed here one night, in the Diamond Suite. This is a two room suite, one of the rooms being a large bathroom with claw foot bath. OK there is a bit of traffic noise as the suite is at the front of the pub on a busy-ish road, but the bed is so comfortable we were out like a light. You can't do much about traffic noise in a listed building - and what a beautiful building! The owners have made a great job of tastefully renovating this place. A good range of ales is complemented by the most wonderful tapas we have ever eaten. We arrived just as the chef was leaving but he nevertheless made us knocked us up some tapas. Our check-in was a little confusing due to some computer glitch - but it was soon sorted out. The breakfast the next morning was really delicious. This is where we met one of the owners who was very friendly and told us some of the interesting history of the pub/hotel. We loved the taps from the night before so much that we had booked lunch the following day - but we sadly had to cancel the lunch booking as we were still full from breakfast! All in all a really nice stay, highly recommended!
