We stayed here one night on our coast to coast walk.
The staff was very helpful and friendly - they picked us up on the trail (and dropped us off the next day), and had helpful advice about the walk.
Food in the pub was decent - nothing stood out either way; pretty much the same as other pub food we encountered on our walk.
But the room, although clean and of a reasonable size, was charmless and run down. Problems included a broken chair, stuck window, coat hook that fell off the door, weak-flushing toilet, and a cold water tap that only delivered a small flow of hot(!) water accompanied by a lot of banging noises. The bath walls were apparently made of ill-fitting gray plastic panels. Room windows were small and high up on the wall since the car park was right outside (so although this provided privacy, it limited light coming in).
The building overall also isn't very appealing; although the core is an old stone house, it's been added on to with wings where cost seemed to trump charm, and the whole thing is surrounded by a big car park.
P.S. The manager told us that the plumbing fittings were scheduled to be replaced the day we checked out.
