So, this is another big win on our internet hotel booking lottery! Didn't know what to expect, and to be frank I had no idea how to find the place.. but I did.. and I'm glad I did.
This is a good old fashioned English pub with rooms. The atmosphere is great.. think village local. The staff are to the point, but friendly and on the ball. The location is smashing, located in a small 'church and handful of houses' village with great views in all directions.
The food is top quality. We visited on their seafood special night, and I seriously rate the 'whale and chips'. I had trouble finishing it.. still did manage of course.. but aside from quantity it was quality in spades. The beer choice would be enough to keep you going a good few nights.
Room was good. My only concern was a very slight odour of smelly feet.. but since the window was open and there was a farm next door, I will give them the benefit of the doubt :-)
I only have one gripe. The jukebox still belted out music at 11pm when we were trying to sleep. It's a local.. fair enough, but the guests should be able to sleep at a reasonable hour.
Actually I have one more gripe. A couple of residents-only parking spaces would be good, as the restaurant patrons tend to fill up the very limited space, leaving guests to find parking on the surprisingly jammed street.
Definitely go, for the beer, the food, and the location.
