Another stop over for one night during the Coast to Coast bike ride - greeted by very friendly staff in the bar who showed us where to store our bikes over night and to our rooms. The rooms were ideal, and the staff made sure the radiators etc were on to let us dry our kit. Couldn't have wished for anything more in the room or bathroom - they were clean, spacious and comfortable. We stayed in the pub for food and again, the friendliness of the staff stood out. The meals were generous and tasty, as was the cider...
Breakfast the next morning was a relaxed affair, we went down when we were ready and it was prepared to order. Plenty of it too - shame they had run of sausages though!
Overall, an ideal stopover for anyone doing the Coast to Coast ride or for a longer stay. The pub is right next to the impressive castle and a pretty church. Highly recommended.
