Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a lovely place to stay. I stayed overnight here whilst working in the area. I am glad I did. The staff are friendly and very efficient. . . The food is absolutely spot on ! I couldn't fault one little item. Coming from someone who spends every week on the road that is one heck of a compliment - I don't say that about many places.

Had a very nice meal. It was a good job we chose the 'light bites' as they were large portions, the larger meals would have been too big for us. We were very satisfied with the staff, the service and the quality and quantity of the food. Keep up the good work.

A pretty B&B/Restaurant. Booked on last minute so didn’t arrive until late afternoon. Quickly booked in and shown to our room, which was nice as it’s usually a ‘point in the general direction’!! Went straight to bar which was lovely and comfy and welcoming as were the Staff. Cannot fault service at all. Unfortunately I think we arrived at a ‘baby weekend’! At one point conversation became impossible due to High pitched screeching of various babies who’s parents seem to think no one minds so ignore it!! Our Dinner table was booked for 8pm but we asked for earlier as we had begun to get quite peckish, this request again met with a smile and a ‘no problem’ attitude. I ordered the Duck which was a little over cooked but not a major problem. When we went back to our room the heat was unbearable even though we’d turned the radiator right down before we left for dinner. Unfortunately this in turn led to a very bad nights sleep. It was an electric shower which was either a slow dribble or a boiling spray. Hairdryer was broken so I managed without.A good choice of teas and coffee in room. and lovely clean cups and saucers, I personally hate mugs!! Breakfast absolutely gorgeous with excellent produce and lots of it. Thankyou again to all you lovely smiling Staff!

Stopped here on spec for lunch. Lovely waitress showed us to a table. I had the specials menu 2 courses for £15. My husband had the onion soup (off my menu) followed by the steak sandwich. I had the salmon tagliatelle. The soup came with half a roll and flavoured butter. My tagliatelle came with garlic bread. Really delicious. One comment. My husband said there was too much cheese on his sandwich

Really enjoyed our stay here. The Food was exceptional. Friendly staff. Even going out of tge way to look up ingredients for a Cocktail. The room was clean and quiet. Bed bit cumbersome for a small room but shower was great. Breakfast was great and service very efficient. Would definitely return

We stayed in an outside room on the fron of the Inn, The traffic noise did wake us up although it is non costent it is disturbing. The room itself is good, the bed is big and comfortable and there is plenty of storage for an overnight stay. The bathroom is mainly clean, however the shower cubilcle is in need of some attention with mould along the seal. The breakfast had a great choice and good quality produce was used. On the whole it is a good hotel but we did feel £100 a night was alittle steep,

Newly updated Hotel with plenty of parking. The room we had was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and soft pillows. It was clean with a good bathroom and shower and large fluffy towels. Free tea and coffee making facility's is always such a nice touch and is for me part of a spending a night in a Hotel. Breakfast was very good, beautifully cooked and with lots of choices. Lovely and friendly staff too. Only slightly negative thing was that we could hear the music quite loudly from the Bar after we had gone to bed at 10.30pm, then again it was Saturday night, so perhaps we were just overtired after a long days driving. I normally ask for a quiet room, but was unable to this time as we got the last room available.

Staff were all very friendly and efficient which always starts things off well. The room I had was one of several which looked to be relatively new in converted block. Although this meant you had to go into the Inn proper by an exterior door, this was literally just a few steps and the benefit was parking your car right outside and there's nobody above you. I was concerned about road noise but the room windows facing the road were small and double-glazed, plus the road isn't busy overnight and I slept fine. The room had a high vaulted ceiling and the ensuite had rain shower with a refreshingly strong flow. WiFi speed in room was good, I was seeing above 50Mbps. Room décor was pleasant, Farrow and Ball style with multiple options for lights including a large bedside lamp. For breakfast I skipped the usual Full English fry-up and went for eggs royale and it was really good. The breakfast menu had a good selection of dishes. I did notice some quirks during my stay - - The large bed doesn't have a head-board, instead two wooden beams go across so need to position the pillows carefully to avoid bumping your head. - I expected the usual gel/shampoo but instead there were 'body and hair bars', TBH I wasn't keen on using a soap bar to wash my hair and instead used shampoo I had with me. - The desk chair had seen better days and I sank right into it, needed new webbing/stuffing. Odd when everything else in the room was new. - There was floor mopping going on while I had breakfast so the air had a fair whiff of disinfectant. All in all. I'd go back; it's another hotel I'd use to break a long journey as it's about 15mins from the M6.

Excellent pub. Lunched here with our walking group. 23 of us enjoyed good food and excellent service from welcoming staff. Only eaten here occasionally with my wife as we live some distance away but will be first choice whenever nearby.
