You’re guaranteed an enthusiastic welcome in this village-run country inn which was apparently brought back from the dead when the original owners couldn’t continue. Customers, whether locals or travellers, are given the best attention and seem genuinely valued. The rooms are simply furnished but clean, comfortable and great value if you don’t mind the lack of superfluous frills. (Would perhaps suit men guests more than women who tend to look out for the finer details of accommodation!) The hotel bar is well stocked if a little threadbare in places, and attracts a loyal crowd with local brews and regular live entertainment. The food menu of home-cooked dishes may not be a gastronomic experience but again is well supported by local customers especially, which says something. Only one criticism I must make is no hot water from the bedroom sink. I had to fill the sink for a shave from the adjacent electric showerhead. I think I understand why but surely a lavatory sink must provide hot water? Some visitors may consider some aspects of the service amateurish but it’s honest and unpretentious and most worthy of support in a district which cannot boast many inns offering good value for money.
