Picked this B&B mainly because of excellent reviews and location suited us.
Arrived throught the day and was pleased with room and made welcome, went down for dinner at 7 had pre drinks in the snooker room there was a honesty bar but unfortunately no prices, dinner was served on a huge dining table there were 4 of us in total there is no choice with the food so I was intrigued to see what was coming, starter was smoked fish which lovely then next coarse came it was a tiny piece of duck I think! it was so small i thought it must be a hors d' oeuvres but then the veg came so I was unfortunately wrong, the duck was the toughest bit of meat I have ever had and you needed a steak knife to cut it, my partner had to leave hers it was so chewy at least the veg was nice.
Sweet was delicious although not much bigger than a match box in size but very tasty all the same, coffe was served in another room. When we retired to the bedroom which you have to go out the main building and go around the corner it was absolutely pitch dark and we had to use the light from mobile phones just to see the entrance door.
Breakfast the following morning was very good just as well as we were still hungry from dinner the night before.
We checked out just after that and that was when i found out how expensive the honesty bar was, we had 2 bottles of cider a bottle of Sauv and a house bottle of red with the meal,
The room cost £94 which was fair
meal £58 very expensive for what you got
Drinks cost £60,40!!! considering you serve your self I think this is day light robbery
