This is definitely a brilliant pub, and any pub connoisseur would have a whale of a time. That does mean that on a Saturday night either you join in or you could be kept awake! We found everything about the pub excellent, from the food and drink to the company. It is definitely the local for a good many as well as attracting parties fro further afield, and the atmosphere is very good. Be quick to book a table if you want dinner, as it's very popular.
We always look for; bed, bathroom (particularly shower), dressing table facilities.
The room (no 9) was very plain and particularly the bed let it down, being much too firm for us as also very creaky! Although it was all new, and there were lots of electric sockets, they were all awkwardly placed for mirrors and lights - my wife found it hard to use her curling tongs. The shower enclosure was very big and the shower flow rate OK but not easy to control.
