Stayed 2 nights at the hotel which is a lovely traditional coaching house. Very friendly staff, helpful and room just fine. Had one meal from the extensive menu, great food and not too "gastro" so feel like you are getting your money's worth. Sport showing in main bar and lots of locals so a nice atmosphere, highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night last weekend and it was lovely. The room was very clean and a really good size too. The owner Tim was amazing, he looked after us very well and was so friendly it was like staying with a family member. Also the cooked breakfast was to die for and was so filling. Tim couldn't...
