Got there and couldn't find a place to park. The owner couldn't help me-she said,"If there isn't a no parking sign you can park there." So, we parked.

When checking in we were a little concerned about sleeping above the pub section, but we had a very quiet night. Nice place for dinner with very flavourful food. Small, but adequate wine list.

Don't know if other rooms have a bath. A hair drier and toiletries...
