The manageress is one of the rudest I've ever encountered. When she was asked how long a breakfast would be, she replied "soon, I've only got one pair of hands".

Just went from bad to worse. Waited for 1.5 hours for main courses. Then, when they finally arrived they did not match the fulsome description in menu. The corn on the cob glazed with garlic and herbs was a pathetic shrivelled specimen. The sea bass...More

This is a nice pub attached to premier inn, nice food but so expensive it spoils the experience. This is typical of greedy companies who think they have a captive audience when next to a hotel.
