We stayed here for two nights. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was fine, though it had a big bathroom but the smallest legal shower (I am not commensurately small) that could have been fitted. A shame really, as there was plenty of room for a bath. The hotel is old, with steps all over the place, but...

This characterful hotel boasts exceptionally attentive staff in the bar, kitchen, breakfast room and in the bedrooms all under the vigilant eye of a manager who manages to keep things humming in a discreet manner. The hotel itself has character with ample parking at the rear but do check the turning to it beforehand. Dinner was pork in breadcrumbs with...

Lovely staff, room was very nicely decorated, liked the tea/coffee and breakfast was really amazing and tasty. Just two wee downsides - I was a little cold in the room, I turned on radiator but had to ask staff for the actual heating to be turned on. With towels we were given a small sachet of conditioning shampoo, shower gel...

Excellent service and great staff. Really good two course dinner for a special occasion and was made to feel very welcome indeed. Will definitely recommend and will definitely be going there again in the very near future. Thank you all very much

Had a meal here when it first changed hands and it was mediocre. Thought I would try again and was disappointed enough to sign up to trip advisor and leave a review. Ordered steak and ribs. I know the butcher, so the meat was of good standard before it reached the kitchen. Steak wasn't rare as ordered, closer to well...

Booked an evening meal to try a £10 special, which should have been rump steak, chips and a desert. So looks good value. However I can't comment on this, as once inside the attached and separate restaurant we looked at the menu. Instead of the deal, both myself and my wife decided to go for the Aberdeen Angus sirloin steak...

We booked this room expecting a somewhat mediocre room in a pub.It certainly is a fairly typical pub but they are refurbishing the rooms and it was a pleasant surprise to be shown up to a tastefully, decorated room with a big bathroom .The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and new.We also appreciated the coffee and tea making...

We ate here on a Friday lunchtime! We chose the steak deal which was £10 for two courses! What a bargain! The steak came with all the trimmings ans was cooked to perfection! Worth at least £15 on its own! Then we had a restaurant standard dessert to follow! Just perfect! Lovely open fire and good choose of beers and...

Just went for lunch but they made us (and our little dog Molly) very welcome. The food was excellent, service was very good and the restaurant/bar is a great area, very atmospheric. Will definitely be visiting again and again!!!!
