Stayed overnight at the end of March as were meeting another couple who lived locally, for dinner & drinks. The place has a nice character and in a good location, easy to find.
Room no. 10 was at the front but the road outside is pretty quiet at night. It was clean & simple, but a few downsides - 1) Slated ceiling (where the roof is) on the left side of the room just above left side of the bed, both my partner & I walked into it when leaning over to pick up stuff from the side bed table, 2) It is slippery getting out of the bath, 3) Like quite a few other mentioned, noisy plumbing.
We had dinner at the room near the bar area at the recommendation of our friends, it was nice & casual. Shared starters were not bad. For mains 3 of us had the Seabream which was cooked perfectly but a bit bland. My partner ordered a medium rare beef burger which was over cooked. Dessert was pistachio cheesecake with coconut sorbet which was lovely I must say.
The restaurant is a pleasant part of the place where we both had full English breakfast the next morning, both poached & scrambled eggs were nicely done.
Overall stay was alright but a little overpriced for the value. We might stay there again for the convenience of not having to drive after drinks.
