What a lovely hotel, great location, fantastic staff and great food. My girlfriend, who is a vegetarian, said the fish and chips was one of the best she had ever had. Phil and Evelyn, the owners were really hands on and made us feel so welcomed. We shall be returning for sure. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Stayed for one night in the pump room, which has windows onto the main street. Noise was not a problem and we slept very well in the most comfortable bed. Only limitation with the room was poor (non-existent) WiFi. We ate supper and breakfast in the restaurant. Enjoyed both meals. For breakfast, there is a selection of cold options and... More

We stayed for three nights and had one evening meal. The room was clean and comfortable. We didn't find the menu terribly exciting, but the quality of the food more than made up for this. The steak was excellent, as was breakfast. There are two other very good eateries in the village, so no car needed to try different places... More
