After recently re-opening a few months ago my husband and I decided to give it a try for dinner and we were not disappointed. I had the fish and it was really good. Everything is cooked fresh to order and the little things like homemade tartare sauce go a long way. If you want good food for a good price...

I arrived here tonite to do a gig after travelling 75 miles to be told I was cancelled with no fee being offered for my expenses appalling behavior from management and bar staff and the Customers were also very unfriendly AND I certainly would not stay as it is very unclean.

We went on Saturday at 6pm. No need to book as it has recently re-opened after years of neglect and hasn't built its reputation up yet. It is a very old building. I believe it was built in 1911. The outside is fresh and welcoming. The restaurant side needs a bit tlc and a wee freshen up. Spacious and tables...

The earl david has reopened today after years of neglect and poor owners, the couple who now run have put 8 months of time and effort to get this bar open again and almost ready to serve meals and hotel rooms are also being gutted and transformed best of luck to them

The whole building was dirty and smelly. You could not see through the window for the dirt. In the room, there were pistachio shells left behind the bedside table. (And that is when I stopped looking behind the furniture). The desk was sticky. The carpet had dodgy stains.The soap tray in the shower had not been cleaned for ages. On...

While visiting family in the village, we decided to nip in for a quick pint. What greeted us inside can only be described as howling. The bar was poorly lit and the air smelled damp and stale. The floors were filthy and i felt instantly unclean as soon as we walked in. The landlord needs to sack the cleaner or...

Having visited this hotel for a few drinks whilst visiting family i must say i was disgusted. This place is a disgrace i am very surprised it has not been shut down by environmental health and that was just the toilets and restaurant/bar area never mind the rooms i dread to think what they are like!

Lovely, friendly hosts but sadly they are not in the right business. The building and room was not only dirty but literally falling apart in places. Our non-smoking room smelt of smoke and the door did not latch properly so we slept with a chair wedged against the back of the door. Could not see out of windows they were...
