We stayed here for literally a bed for the night which visiting silverstone. It was £50 a room. The room was basic but nice. Very comfy bed. Bathroom could do with a bit of an uplift. We had tea and coffee in our room and a TV. The bar staff were lovely and very helpful. We didn't eat while there.

We stayed one night for the MotoGP at Silverstone. Room was £50 per night so expecting basic. You will need to take all toiletries, even hand wash as they only provided 2 towels. The room was cleanish but I think they must have overlooked the bathroom sink as it was very dirty looked as if someone had been sick in...

A reasonable choice of good home cooking. Friendly staff. Cost based on size of meal portion. It's pub food but good pub food. Good value for money but I probably wouldn't bother with a dessert as they are less tasty.vThere are rooms but not seen them.

The best sunday roast for miles...the medium is enough to feed 5000 and very delicious, meats are cooked to perfection as are the fresh cooked roast potatoes and the vegegables on offer. Homely surroundings and excellent staff, would highly recommend, so much so, am having my sunday roast there every sunday. :)

This is a review of the restaurant, not the B&B. We visited at 3.30pm for the carvery - a dangerous time, as we've previously found as some of the food can be tired. Not here. Excellent choice of meat and vegetables and you also get a choice of small (2 slices), medium (3 slices) or large (4 slices). If you...
