Just home from a very relaxing break. We love it here as the food is good, man sized portions and friendly staff. Only grumbles are would of nice to have fires lit as it was a little cold in the bar and our lasagne was very dry but other than that great place. We keep going back and even our...

Just back from our 4th visit from this gorgeous Inn. New owners have got it perfect, food superb and staff wonderful. Got Room 10 again and it's just right for us, 6 year old and 2 dogs. Can't wait to return for next visit.

Stayed in room 5 for an evening. Room was nice, has a balcony (not a spectacular view but would be nice in summer) and the bed was relatively comfy. The room was quite warm even without the radiator on and that and the constant humming noise in the corner of the room suggested it was next to a boiler. TV...

After a recommendation from a customer at my pub I booked a few nights here. Can't speak highly enough. The people were very welcoming, the ale was superb and the food fantastic. Real pub food, done right.

Met up for lunch with my brother and his wife and their dog last Friday! What a menu, lots of variety especially as my brother is a veggie! The staff were so friendly and helpful while taking our order! After a very short wait the food arrived and it was gorgeous! Silence reigned over the table while we all tucked...

Lovely that the pub is dog friendly. After a really long walk we were really looking forward to a pub lunch, but it was just all pretty tasteless and like it had been got out of numerous packets from the freezer. It would be great if you could do a few things really well rather than trying to do everything...

A brilliant place to stop for just a bite and a pint or to stay over. Staff are excellent and cannot praise them highly enough. The Crown Inn was a favorite of ours when we often stayed here and we gave this place a try due to the change in management and are more than happy we did. Keep up...

Looks good from outside with lots of parking. Inside looks very tired and cramped. Very busy and noisy when we visited staff ignored our requests for menu. Tables were not particularly clean and were not being cleared quickly. Gave up and went elsewhere.

25 of us ate Sunday lunch here on 11th Dec. The portions were large, the service very good and the quality of the food also great - not easy with a party of 25! We arrived via the steamer ferry and managed to eat 2 courses and coffee before having to catch the last ferry back.
