Good location, beer choices and quality always good. Bit expensive when there are plenty of other choices in Knutsford to try out. Think it need to up its game a bit. Been in a few times when visiting but its not my first choice by a long way in Knutsford.

Handy for a weekend away, will return at the next opportunity. Very friendly owners, always eager to please and genuinely nice people. Felt very welcome. Beds were a little on the firm side, but that's subjective. For the price I'd recommend without hesitation.

This is a great location in the middle of knutsford with its own car park so very convenient. The pub is very nice good atmosphere and the breakfast was good. The accommodation was average and needs updating. The bathroom had some mould and the shower over the bath was very weak so not a good start to the day. The... More

Shower terrible Bottled water in room but no glasses. Headboard loose on bed. Room 'tired' in need of decoration Net curtains freyed. Didn't bother stopping for breakfast. Went to hand keys back...

I cannot recommend this dreadfully ran down establishment ...in dire need of a renovation / make over. The only three redeeming things, preventing a ' one ' score....were, pleasant staff, clean and comfortable bed /bedding and clean nice towels. Every other aspect really AWFUL.

TV in room missing for 2 weeks per previous review, staff claimed to know nothing about it. Lock to door didn't work. Room smelled & was dirty. Slept in a cupboard in the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. Didn't bother with breakfast after reading previous reviews. No wonder you pay up front in this hotel, stay away!!

Instead we had cold beans which were sent back and returned later still cold. Most of us had finished by the time the beans came back. Toast was... More
