stayed here for 2 nights for a family party. This review is no way reflective of the staff who are trying there best with what they have but there is no management control. So many things are wrong here.
The bar is a local centre for loud music and packed.
The bar is too small and understaffed to cope with demand. It took an hour to fight your way to the bar to get a drink. if you stay at the front of the hotel don't expect to sleep.
If you advertise yourself as a hotel, act like one. We were having a family reunion and when the bar closed even though we were not sitting in the bar we were told to get out and go to our rooms. This is how you treat people in a pub not a hotel. If you want to do this then advertise yourself as a 'Pub with Rooms'
The food is beyond awful. If you like badly reheated frozen food then this is the place for you.
The breakfast (which surprisingly takes over an hour to be delivered) was inedible. Suggest that you fetch from Costa a few doors up on the high street.

I stayed here last night with my work colleagues as we were working close by for 2 days. The room was great and has great character and charm. We have all stayed here in the past and will be staying here again the next time work brings us to the area. The breakfast was great with plenty of choice.
Thank you.

3night stay with kids and family.
Had a ground floor room next to car park which was great for access. We arrived at 11pm after a long drive and checked in fine even with a wedding function going on.
Sofa bed wasn't made up on arrival but bar staff were more than happy to sort it out and make it up, very apologetic and very prompt at sorting the bed.

Breakfast was lovely and good options which is great when you have kids,set us up for the day and comes as part of the room option.

Room was lovely and warm on arrival but unfortunately next night felt a wee bit chilly and I wasn't sure how to work the heating but once in bed I was fine.
The 3rd night it seemed to come on during the night so must be some sort of timer!
Shower was great, powerful and what you'd want at a hotel. Can't fault it.
Came back 9.30pm and even managed to get dinner for 5 people at that time of night so was very impressed.

Overall the hotel has a lot of charm, it's obviously an old building but it works and was nice staying somewhere with character.

A story. I was stood at the bar , second in line and the lady in front ordered a peroni and a half pint for herself. The half pint was so full she couldn't lift it without spilling and bent down to take several sips. There are so many establishments that short change you on your drink, where 90% seems the norm. I said "You've had your money's worth!" and nodded at her drink. The bar maid noticed the beer now 95% full and topped it up! I fell about laughing and the lady said "I could stay here all afternoon"

I've visited many times. The food is excellent, Beers good, bubbles on a Friday a bargain (I've been known to have four bottles with a friend) And the staff, what can I say that I haven't already?

I can only speak for the restaurant side of the business, but that was lacking.

The food itself is average - nothing special but priced appropriately. However, the amount of time it takes to come is an absolute joke. Even when the place is quiet and there are clearly enough staff, you'll be left waiting and waiting.

There are so many other pubs and restaurants in Stony that are far better for service.
