Booked in with the wife to attend the beer festival and this is the closest accommodation to the venue. The room was clean with a comfortable bed and a reasonable size bathroom. The staff were very helpful and check in was quick even though the pub was busy. Access to the rooms is via a separate entrance, so you don't need to go through the pub. One grumble about the entrance was it was constantly blocked by drinkers standing in the doorway or sitting on the step. People did move out of the way with no fuss, but it may disconcerting for some. The bouncer for the pub did try and keep the entrance clear.
The room was very warm (26 degrees), but the windows only open a couple of inches (probably to stop people falling out). There was a remote controlled fan (nice gadget) that helped keep us cool while sleeping. Noise is not too bad considering it is over the pub on a main road. The pub noise was not intrusive, so the traffic noise could be the challenge for any light sleepers (not me).
The main downside in the room was the lack of storage space. There is no wardrobe just three hooks for coats with two coat hangars and no cupboards or bedside drawers. We were travelling light, so it was not a major issue, but if you intend to stay for a week or more be warned space is a premium.
Breakfast was very good with freshly cooked eggs, good quality ingredients e.g. Herby sausages, thick hash brown and crispy bacon. They were out of black pudding in this occasion, so may be next time.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and will use the pub again.
