Nothing marvellous to report about this place. As a pub, it's fine - a good range of ales and friendly staff. The breakfast was good - well cooked and good service. The room was large and well furnished, though a bit tired. The bathroom was awful: old suite; no shower, just hand held shower tap; old lino on the floor; poor lighting. We left feeling we'd paid too much for our stay: at £75 a night, you should at least expect a shower!!

Room was not as expected (no 6). Tired, dated & lacking TLC. Shower room was the same & the shower itself weak - hot though, I'll give it that.

Food - well provided you like stew, stew or let me think, oh yes, stew - then you're ok. Pre-prepared, just warmed up. Was quite tasty but then I was hungry.

The pub however was popular & had a decent atmosphere in the bar. Live music both nights.

Their motto is 'live well, eat well, sleep well'. Well, wishful thinking. It could be a fab place if some effort was put in. Needs some Alex Polizzi magic

Pre prepared food of limited choice so decided not to stay and walked out .The beer was well kept but the furnishings are looking tired and needs refurbishing.

Fantastic room and very spacious, was happily surprised at the price. Beautiful room (no 7.) but could do with a much better shower! But was a fantastic bath. Breakfast was great and people very very friendly and helpful (could do with less fried things on the breakfast menu). Dinner in the bar was amazing very yummy. Very comfy beds and a beautiful four poster bed.

Room was great! Good bath, not so great shower.

Food in the pub is great value for money and very tasty. Breakfast in the morning is good to (not swimming in grease).

Very friendly staff and extremely helpful.

Would stay again!
