Popped in for dinner and drinks tonight cannot rate it high enough service was great and the pints were to die for thanks. Would completely recommend the Fish and chips. The locals were really friendly and our dog was made to feel at home.

After a long day travelling on business this was what I wanted. A quiet country pub where I could have a beer and something to eat. The room was large, as was the bathroom, and clean but both looked a bit tired. Bathroom did need the smell attending to. Was the only one staying that night. Breakfast was therefore fitted...

Thank you for staying and your review. We refurbish our rooms each winter as the demand for the rooms is lower between November, January and February. We have already completed the "refurbishment/ freshening up" of our four rooms. Rooms three and four have already been completed. Room 4 and Room 1 (which you used during your stay) remain to be...

We stayed here last weekend and had a lovely weekend. The pub and dining area has a great ambience with oak beams and a big fireplace. The food was the best I have tasted in a while, the three cheese crumble with soldiers, was a big hit. The rooms are comfortable and clean with tea and coffee facilities, and the...

Had dinner here last night while staying at Flowery Dell lodges in Richmond. Dog friendly pub which we were very grateful for. Food was excellent, better than your usual pub food. Staff and locals were all very friendly. Would highly recommend.

Stayed here for one Saturday as we were looking for somewhere not too far from the A1 on our route south.

It was bad enough having driven for 4 hours to this place (with my family) to find that the room that I had booked the previous month (and confirmed that very week) was now not available, but to be blamed by the proprietor for HIS error was the final straw. A simple admission of his error would have sufficed.

I have been waiting for your promised review since your abusive visit yesterday. I anticipated it would be on TripAdvisor as you did not book through Booking.com & did not stay here. TripAdvisor is the only on line review facility that allows individuals who have not used the facility to submit a review. Yesterday you were abusive & your review...
