The staff here are lovely! Booked a one night stay and the rooms are perfect. Stones throw away from main pub. Log burner and gorgeous open fire with Chesterfield sofa. Sheepskin rugs on your chair! Requested a full English breakfast to our room the next...day at 10am. They kindly agreed and bang on 10am our breakfast arrived, which was amazing! Thank you to all the staff for giving us a welcoming stay.More

Food great, atmosphere buzzing, Adam was a fantastic host. All good really, because we were indecisive and demanding but he took it in his stride

Just ate here for my partner's birthday and it was amazing. The food was amazing, the surroundings were great and chilled and most importantly the service was amazing. We were served by a very cheerful, happy lass called Izzy. She was great and quick. I...worked in the restaurant industry for 20years and I was never as consistently happy and efficient as Izzy was. Always makes you feel welcome when you're service is good. Would highly recommend eating here.More
