Stopped here for one night recently at short notice - the room (11) was ok, small and with just a sky light window. No en-suite shower (a detachable hose was supplied) but plenty of hot water for the bath. The toilet seat was very worn and I'm not sure the bedding had been changed as there were some long hairs in it which I definitely don't have, as well one or two in the bathroom ! The whole place in general does feel tired, a bit down at heel and in need of some sympathetic refurbishment. I had fish & chips in the evening which was very good if a little expensive and breakfast was fine if nothing special.
Generally the service was good and friendly if functional and needing somewhere at short notice and having called in here before for a drink, I wasn't too put out by any shortcomings as I was on my own and it was just for one night, but I don't think I'd bother staying again as I'm sure there are better options nearby for the price, certainly for a longer stay. It's very much a tourist pub in a tourist trap and in a fantastic location, but which does sell very good beer brewed on the premises, if you're a real ale fan.
