Quaint to look at as you drive down the high street but the best thing you could do would be to carry on driving and look for somewhere else to stay!!
Were not informed of the 24 hour liscence when rooms were booked. This in reality meant that while the live music ended at a reasonable time, the piped jukebox music went on BLASTING out until 3am and the noise from all the people drinking combined with this meant that sleep in the guest rooms (located directly above all the noise) was impossible.
When booking we were told that there was limited parking on a first come first served basis.....this translated as a narrow alley at the back of the pub with space for one to two cars at most. I opted to park else where away from the pub (limited options) and was glad that I did as the following morning saw piles of broken glasses where I would have had to park my car.
Rooms were clean and basic but getting to them involved clambouring up a cluttered staircase covered in paperwork, boxes and kids toys!
Breakfast was skipped (although not even offered) due to being so tired from the previous night's noise that we felt we could not stomach the thought of eating! This was compounded by the fact that as we walked through the Inn, it felt so dirty as our feet were sticking to the floor.
I would NEVER stay there again and certainly would not recommend it to a friend. I paid £120 for two rooms and had virtually no sleep.....possibly the worst £120 I have ever spent!
