We popped in for a cream tea and it was very good, proper clotted cream, lovely jam, fresh scone and good quality tea. The atmosphere in the area we sat was good and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being in large old fashion type room.

We had a nice room, clean and smartly decorated. There is free parking and WiFi, the staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't eat in but the dinner menu looked good. Comfy nights sleep although the exit emergency light is a little annoying. Breakfast was very good as you would expect.
