We booked this pub/hotel specifically as it said "The Fisherman's Haunt is a delightful country pub right on the River Avon" there is no view of the river - not even from the sign posted "river view garden" ! There is however a very busy main road...
The Fullers website has used a lot of creative license!
When we arrived we asked "wheres the river then?" the member of staff ( who has obviously been asked this many times) replied "Oh you have to go down the road and cross over, double back and down through the trees, did you bring wellies?"
Its not that we are river obsessed, its just the description on the website is so wrong, ( next time I shall check on Google street view) instead of an evening drink looking over the Avon, it was a busy main road.
However its not all negative! The room was very nice, well decorated,well furnished and clean, extras such as good toiletries, bottled water and a bar of chocolate were appreciated.
The evening meal in the pub was fine - normal standard for Fullers, the breakfast was very good value but was served painfully slowly, only one member of staff, to take orders and serve.
On the whole is was a pleasant enough stay, but dont expect a river view!!
