We had booked for a Wednesday night. A bit surprised when we got there and the kitchen was closed - luckily the pub over the road was open and served great food. The rooms decoration needs updating and installing wifi! Breakfast was very nice.

Nice place needs a clean and a paint brush. Good selection of beer and an ok menu. Had the Chilli unfortunately it was not hot or spicy and was very dry Ham Egg and Chips was very nice Staff were good may just have got there on the wrong day

Lovely inn, lovely people, lovely bed and breakfast was ok however for £70 a night it was very expensive for what you get. It's very old so uneven floors. Slightly musty smelling hallways and bedrooms and at 8am both mornings the sound of the residents letting the dogs out and banging around. It's a decent place to stay but for...

Called here for the first time it was the first pub we came across and ran in as it was raining heavily. The few tables at the front were taken so we walked through to the bar and was shown to a table here. We placed our order and got a drink, this was spoilt by the local lads who's...

“Family room (room 2) is great, has a superking, single bed, and sofa, but perhaps slightly closer to front of pub (and therefore noise) than others. However, the noise was fine on a Sat night for us anyway.”
