My husband and I and 2 friends stayed here only one night, but we'd definitely come back again and stay longer next time.
We stayed in The Blacksmith Room which was very large and quite comfortable and our friends had (I believe) The Stable Room next door, a cosy twin room. Unfortunately for my personal taste, the double bed was a bit hard, but our room (obviously a family room) also contained a couple of twin beds which were better for my back. Spacious bathroom and the room was warm, despite the cold drizzle and fog outside.
On arrival, we wanted lunch, which the pub does not serve, and the owner directed us to a very nice butchers just 5 minutes down the road which did sandwiches. We brought them back, bought our drinks and even though we didn't expect it, we were provided with plates and napkins - a nice touch of hospitality.
They do evening meals and a glance at the meal showed a lovely variety of home-cooked items, but we were fortunate enough to be there for Friday - Steak night, and the four of us enjoyed a well-cooked and quite reasonably priced steak dinner (£18.95 for two meals, including a large glass of wine each).
The only negative comments I would have is that the rooms adjoin the smoking area connected to the back of the pub and the sounds of conversation, although not raucous, was clearly audible in our room, but the pub closes at midnight and after that, it was beautiful silent all night long. Also breakfast is not included in the price, but if you request it, you can have breakfast at a cost the next morning. We're not breakfast people and there's coffee in the room, so this was not an issue for us.
Next time we're up in that area, we would most definitely stay and would recommend it to others as well.
