Having read one of two rather half-hearted reviews 'more than adequate' and 'dreary looking but..' we were pleasantly surprised to find the Inn just as traditionally un-dreary as it looks on the site. The rooms were warm and cosy, the restaurant good and the staff above and beyond, providing plasters for my companion's blisters and filling our flask in the morning.
A cooked breakfast tends to be a mixed blessing on a walk, congealing into a lump of lard by mid morning. This was quite different - really good quality food, locally sourced and well cooked.
Blazing fires in the bar and restaurant. If I have a minor niggle, I think they may be let down by their wine merchants. We had a glass of Rioja and a glass of Merlot. Not poor enough to send back, but not great.
This place really deserves to succeed (though the local authority should think about putting in a pedestrian crossing outside).
