This is a review mostly for their accomodation, a cottage in the garden/car park with only two letting bedrooms.
Our room was a spotlessly clean room with a huge wetroom ensuite. The incredibly comfortable bed is a straight double, which is a bit of a pity as the room is well big enough for a king. The wetroom is huge and rather spartan but obviously designed with use for disabled guests and has a good shower. Coffee, tea, biscuits and bottled water are provided, as is free wifi.
The room is one of two in an old cottage building at the back of the pub. One room is upstairs, we had the downstairs room and were aware that the old floor above was a bit creaky. It is in the pub garden area and a small car park. On the Monday night we stayed it was really quiet even though there is a large dual carriageway about 100 yards away. ...delivery wagons for the pub did arrive quite early though, but this was not surprising it being slap bang in the town centre. I can imagine that this room wouldn't be quiet until quite late on a warm summer weekend though.
There is one problem which made for a very disturbed night for me and possibly other guests who are used to a dark room.
Above the room door there is a green fire exit light (not something I have ever seen in a hotel room before) It doesn't look much of a problem when the lights are on or during the day but when the lights are off and the blackout curtains drawn the room is lit with a piercing overbright light, which is at the foot of the bed. To add to this almost above the bed is a burglar movement detector. This flashes a bright blue led three times when one of you sits up or gets out of bed....not ideal!! I told the staff about this and I wouldn't be surprised if they had addressed these issues by now as they were very obliging.
If they fixed this I would stay there again as the staff are lovely, efficient and welcoming. The ales in the pub are beautifully kept and chosen and tasting samples are offered to the undecided....and also, it being a Wetherspoons, very cheap. We had porridge for breakfast which was freshly prepared. With juice each and a tea and coffee it was just over 6 quid. The accomodation being bang in the town centre has lots of restaurants and pubs to chose from.
