“Great lunch time meal, prompt service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

My wife and I arrived about 12.20pm on a Friday, sat upon a sofa and had a drink whilst we waited for our lunch. I had a half pint of speckled hen and it was a good beer. Although we weren't in a hurry, the wait for our food wasn't long. I had chicken ballentine stuffed with spinach and mushrooms. Very very tasty. The staff were efficient and friendly. I'll definitely come here again..The restaurant was stylish and well maintained. I would recommend it

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

I am local and would not really have thought of eating here as I am so used to seeing the pub packed at weekends. However, my mother treated the whole family (8 of us) to Christmas Eve dinner here. The food choice was excellent and despite being busy everything arrived together and hot. The food had great flavour and texture and the staff were friendly and attentive. My only comment was that the wine list was limited -although the Sancerre we had was excellent. There is a Monday night disount and I will not hesitate to eat here again in future.

We were staying nearby & went to the restaurant one evening. It has 2 menus and a specials board to choose from. It was a very enjoyable meal, well presented very tasty with friendly waiting staff. We ate here on a Monday which currently has a special offer of 25% your food bill. Worth a visit.

Stayed in this area for a week, and used the restaurant here twice. On both occasions the food was very good. Nice menu choice and good portion size. Would definitely recommend restaurant if you are in that area.
Would also add how nice and friendly the staff were as well, which rarely gets mentioned!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

We stayed one night as part of a cycling holiday. Had no complaints about the room or furnishings. Good sized room, big flat screen TV and plenty of tea and coffee. The bed was very comfortable and everywhere seemed very clean.
The food seemed to be highly rated and the restaurant was very busy. However, we fancied an Indian meal so went the restaurant 200m down the road which was very good.
The main problem is that this is a typical coaching hotel and is built right in the middle of town where all the roads meet. At night, the local youths use the town as a racetrack with very noisy cars and motorbikes going round the town until very late. The windows are all single glazed so there was no soundproofing at all. Can't blame the hotel for the Police not clamping down on boy racers, but something could be done to insulate the windows, even if it is Listed. Take some earplugs if you are light sleepers. On checking in, I asked if the room was a quiet one and was told 'quietish'. They obviously know there is a problem.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a quiet room in advance. Not sure they have any, but ask anyway.

This was my second one night stay at this hotel.

got the room for £60 including breakfast in a double at single occupancy rate. had a really nice room overlooking the small town square. Everything fine with the room (flat screen TV, good tea and coffee etc. nice big and bright bathroom) check in and out was efficient and very friendly. last time i ate out in a nearby Indian (which was also pretty good) but this time decided to try the food at the hotel. Had a drink in the bar first which was nice and busty for a Monday night. Went through to eat and again surprised at how full it was for a Monday.

Food was really good and pretty good value. Would eat here again if staying at the hotel.

Breakfast was OK but a little slow and my smoked salmon and scrambled eggs included a small piece of smoked and the rest was poached salmon pieces. OK but not really as advertised.

Overall a very good experience.

Stopped here for lunch on our way through. Very good service and the food was superb! Especially recommend the fish & chips!! Also we found it quite reasonably priced.
