We stayed a couple of nights having read the reviews on Tripadvisor. The new landlord has been there for 12 weeks and is dragging the inn into shape and trying to make the restaurant business work too. We ate there in the Thai restaurant but were in the back room, which is the inn's breakfast room, as the main room was full. The Thai food was good but the rest of the place needs a refurb, which it is currently undergoing so it would be unfair to criticise further. The landlord is a nice chap and seems to know the business so I think the place will improve over the quieter months and be properly sorted by next spring. Comfortable room but needs some work on the decor, which as I say has started in the bars and is moving though the building. Very good breakfast with morning papers and a nice touch with complimentary biscuits, drinks chocolate in the room.
