Spent the weekend at the Mug House. A brilliant location within a very attractive town. I was a little concerned about the parking but it wasn't an issue, despite the local council building a fun fair around my car on the Saturday morning! It's in an excellent location right in the centre of a town with no supermarket and hence some interesting shops and restaurants. We decided on an Indian meal on the Friday night and had a choice of restaurants and very little to choose between them.
On both evenings the bar was full but we had no problem finding a table and the service was both quick and friendly. On the Saturday we ate in the restaurant and could not fault the meal or the service. The room (Daffodil) was fine, with the usual sort of chorus created by the creaking boards that you get in old buildings. The fresh milk in the bedroom fridge was a very nice touch.
Breakfast on the Saturday was fine but on the Sunday my wife's scrambled egg arrived in a rubbery state. For her inedible. The reason given was that previous guests had requested their scrambled eggs dry and the chef had cooked hers the same. There was however a similarity between the eggs served and the kind you get in a buffet breakfast where the food is kept warm under lights. They immediately offered to replace the breakfast but unfortunately when your expectations have been dashed, your appetite disappears. The contrast with the previous night's dinner was startling.
In no way did it spoil our weekend and if the opportunity arises we will go back.
