    Satisfactory stay, very creaky floorboards so difficult to creep around!! Breakfast is good, like all the Old English Inns we have stayed in, but service needs addressing. More staff required. Ideal location for market and shops.

    We were there on a Sunday evening and had dinner. As it is a hotel and pub it is a seven day service so I cannot foresee any problems.
