We stayed just one night and had dinner in this charming pub and loved it. True there were things in our room we might have faulted but that would be ‘picky’. Our dinner was excellent, the room comfortable, the en-suite had a bath and fine toiletries.

I am mildly disabled & need crutches to walk. I also need a shower with a seat as opposed to a bath. Bed length-I am 6 feet, 4 inches tall.
The room known as "Langley" is on the ground floor & has a large shower, although, as yet, no stool. It also has no "grab rail" The disabled WC. is just outside the room. Tell them in advance of your requirements & I am sure that they will be helpful.

Are you able to book a table, or is it first come first serve?
It is certainly advisable to book at week ends. Probably wise to book in any event.
