This is a great hotel - clean, well maintained and very comfortable, with a very good restaurant/bar. The food was well cooked and had a choice of local dishes. Breakfast was exceptional, especially the porridge. I wholeheartedly recommend it and hope to stay again

Was surprised to find anywhere serving meals on a Sunday, let alone in what appears to be quite a backwater. But WHAT meals! Never tasted such succulent and more-ish Cumberland sausage and gravy for years, and the vegetables perfectly cooked. My friends had other dishes...More

We ate here on two evenings when we were staying in the village. The food was excellent, several different choices on the specials board each evening. Good range of beers. Friendly staff. Would definitely go back.
