We stayed and had dinner here for our wedding anniversary, and having booked a year in advance were obviously looking forward to the trip. I had been anxious that it would end up being a bit of an anti climax but I couldn't have been more wrong.
Our room was beautiful, snug, yes but I was expecting that and it was perfectly laid out. The stone bath was immense and the perfect antedote to a long evening.
The staff could have not been more welcoming with smiles and hellos at all turns. The pub is cosy but the new bar area is beautiful and perfect for pre dinner and post dinner drinks. The atmosphere is lovely and relaxed and we both really enjoyed ourselves. The food was outstanding and exceeded our expectations with beautiful fresh bread and white bait produced with 'compliments of the chef'.
The staff were attentive at all times but not overtly so and helped make it a very relaxed but special evening.
The morning breakfast was lovely, and the lardy cakes and biscuits provided in the room were just outstanding!
I really don't understand some of the reviews on here and would not hesitate to recommend a stay and dinner here (not that I need to!)
