Hi Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry your visit was disappointing. We do ask all customers if everything is okay so that we can put anything right if not. I am sorry your party did not give us the opportunity to put right the issues you raised. All your orders were placed and paid for separately hence they came out at different times. We will in future take this into account. We have received a lot of positive feedback on our new menu and our ales and constantly review our offering and service. We hope to see you again in the future. Best Tony

Yes, yes and yes! The Three Shires does do Sunday lunches and they are excellent. Given likely volumes of people, booking ahead might be sensible!

Definitely agree with Three Shires suggestion, we take room 5 for a long weekend each year, fantastic spot, lovely views, superb hospitality, can't beat it. The only other place with views from outside (not sure about rooms) is the Drunken Duck

"Rooms on both sides are quiet but ask about the mattresses if you prefer a room with one that is firm."
"We would recommend paying a little more and having a front room"
"Ask for a room at the front with a view."
"rooms at the front have very good views. Room 8 is a suite and excellent for a small family"
"Only ate here but friends had stayed and highly recommended the rooms."
