A very pleasant short break with friends. Booked two rooms B&B with evening meal both nights. Very clean and tidy rooms a little on the small side but nice nonetheless. Good choice of beers in the bar .. a log fire .. great food and very pleasant staff. Great for a short break !!

Dear Timvirdee, Please do accept my apologies if there had been any miscommunication regarding your table reservation on Saturday.
