My heart sank as we parked our car outside. It seemed a far cry from the impressive polished website pictures! I needn't have worried though. Whilst the decor could all do with refreshing the important things were first rate. We were immediately welcomed and shown to our family room which was clean, tidy and comfortable. The various members of staff throughout our stay were extremely friendly and welcoming. The food here is very, very good. Nothing too fancy but real honest home cooked pub-grub. Both the food and drinks on offer are very reasonably priced and there was plenty of choice. Breakfast in particular was most impressive. Beautifully cooked and presented and served with a smile. Our 4 year old was also made to feel most welcome. Even the locals drinking at the bar took time to chat to him and as a result he quickly felt at home.
All in all a good experience with only the proximity of a busy road a bit of a dampener as we needed to keep the windows closed on what was a very hot night.
