Reviewed 20 May 2014

We met friends for a casual Saturday evening bite, and were well accommodated in the courtyard (dog came too!) as it was a wam and pleasant evening.
When it turned cooler, we were welcomed into the bar area where we had dessert and coffee.

I enjoyed my main course of salmon, but my colleagues were not overly impressed with their lamb or pork dishes.

The main hitch came when we asked if we could pay the bill using three separate credit cards. As predicted, this was entirely possible, but we were made to feel as if we were being difficult whilst the situation was investigated. Rather put a dampener on the evening.

However, the evening was not an expensive one, so we will give the staff the benefit of the doubt!

Room Tip: Did not stay - but try not to get a room facing the road!

Stayed here over the weekend, excellent find. The staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant food was good and the wine list acceptable. My only complaint would be the bed was too soft, but that is a personal preference.

We stayed here in November 2012 and were most impressed by the service, accommodation and food. Sometimes second impressions don't live up to expectations but in this case we found the same attention to detail as before.
Excellent food - well presented and priced, good breakfasts with a wide choice of dishes and excellent rooms.

Room Tip: Room 1 a little noisy from the kitchen extractor fan.

We are so glad to hear that you found your recent stay with us as good as your first visit, we always try to maintain our high standard. Unfortunately some of our rooms are noisier than others, but if you request a quiet room when booking we will always accommodate you in the quietest room possible.

We have eaten here a few times & on occasion it hasn't always hit the hights but this time it was spot on. Starters of pate & fish cake were soon polished off followed by beautifully cooked beef & pork which were served with fresh veg & a huge yorkshire. Scrummy. We did manage puddings and I would have preferred my crumble a bit crunchier, but that's being "picky". Despite being quite busy, service was good & timely.

Visited last weekend. It's a lovely little restaurant/ B&B. Good selection of food and ale (Aspalls). I do travel a few miles so it's refreshing to find a place like this on the main route. Blonde waitress very friendly and attentive. Thank you!!! I will come back for sure.

A nice pub/restaurant hybrid with good beers and roaring fire in the pub side coupled with a decent menu in the restaurant. The bedrooms were ok albeit a little tired but with really comfortable beds. Breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled with family
