Arrived at property at midnight having been to a function nearby. Allocated room in serious need of attention and was colder than outside. Manager/owner had terrible attitude when asked for some help in warming the room. Cooked breakfast barely edible and tasteless. Never again.!!!!!

If you have already booked and cannot cancel I feel sorry for you. This pub is run down, the rooms are dirty and I had a separate bathroom across a corridor with no heating apart from a towel rail that did not work. The radiator in the bedroom was on full and could not be controlled BUT worst of all... More

Stayed a few nights in September and although the bed was very comfortable, the property is a bit run down for example, the paint in the bathroom was peeling. The breakfast was great so overall, we had a comfortable stay.

We expected more for the price we paid. We were surprised to find black hairs in the sink and a dirty mug next to the toilet. There was also Cobb webs over the bed. Service was slow at breakfast but the breakfast was decent.

Stayed for 2 nights and opted for the superior room. The room itself was big, but the bed was only a standard double. It was clean, the breakfast was delicious and the staff friendly enough, however there were lots of niggling things that let it down: No information/wifi password or even a pen in the room. I never managed to... More

My wife and I enjoyed the two meals for £9.95 lunch and will certainly call again when next in the area. The sausage and mash I had was a real treat at the price, likewise the gammon, egg and chips enjoyed by my wife .
