Reviewed 12 August 2013

We arrived on 8th August to stay the night before the opening day of the Ashes. We booked two rooms - a double and a twin. The double had recently been refurbished and was excellent. The twin a little dated but perfectly adequate and very clean. The staff were so friendly and the breakfast excellent. For value for money and location for the cricket it would be hard to beat and they did not inflate their prices for the ashes unlike some of the chain hotels. We had accommodation and breakfast for 4 people for the same price as for two without breakfast had we have stayed elsewhere - plus a very pleasant bar area and restaurant if needed. Would definitely recommend this place and we will return again for the cricket.

Needed something at short notice and got a decent deal on Laterooms. Décor of the hotel, restaurant and rooms is a bit dated but the place was clean. All the staff really friendly, cooked breakfast was fine. There was a coach party staying so the restaurant was full all at once at dinner and breakfast but easy enough to work round that. We ate at a nice Italian about a mile away.Hotel is fine for the price and no complaints really.

I have been time and time again and the food is always great, the service is fab, the prices are reasonable (a tad pricy but you pay for quality)and immaculately kept! The bar area and the lounge\dining are are separated and there is a partitioned door for events.. I in fact had my wedding reception here and it was truly the most amazing day ever! All thanks to the staff.
the food is just simply amazing! Food cooked to perfection and everyone who came to my wedding complimented the food.

the bar and toilets have just been refurbished to a very high standard...baby changing facilities and highchairs available.
if the weather is nice the outside are is lovely with a well kept garden with ample parking

the rooms were adequate/slightly dated however i believe the rooms have also been refurbished recently so i guess these will now be of the same high standard as the bar.

overall a definite option for food, a drink, an event or an overnight stay

and you would never think you were just round the corner from fencehouses

our first visit here as we have family close by and thought we would try it out. arrived when the pub had more or less just opened but it gradually got busier as time went on. i had a drink and in the drink was a floater of some kind but it was not a problem as i got a replacement drink no bother. i ordered a tuna sandwich but was informed that they had no tuna. so i asked if they could make a cheese toastie instead which i got with some really nice home made chips, the best i have had in a long while. our meals did take a while to come out considering what we ordered but im guessing that it was just because it had opened. we are going to call in again in a months time while visiting relatives and see how it is again. it is in a nice location with good views and i think a proper beer garden would be very nice and much appreciated by their regular customers. as at present it has a seating area outside but really it just looks on to the car park instead of the nearby fields which would be lovely.

tip to waiter, if you drop a chip down a customers back don't pretend it didn't happen and slink off,tip to cook (could not be a chef) change the oil you cook your food in when it starts to go rancid,if serving peppers,onions with pate try roasting or frying as opposed to serving raw, hand cut chips and cod goujons be cooked to order (in clean oil ) instead of serving up dried up greasy ones.make salads up fresh instead of serving the same stuff that accompanied the pate just piled higher. finally, if getting diners to pre order food a week in advance make sure the order is fullfilled instead of saying you've ran out of it. all in all very very poor food and service.
