We were looking forward to our visit to the Orange Tree and indeed were swayed slightly by the reviews on here. We had one double room and one courtyard room booked. Our friends had the courtyard room (only one was available) and it was absolutely beautiful - a really lovely room for £95.00. On the other hand our room at £85 was a dreadful disappointment - I wouldnt have expected to pay more than £65 for this. I didn't find the place at all welcoming - it seems a 'local' place. The menu did not appeal to me in the slightest, it was all meat - fine if you are a burly rugby player but there was nothing for anyone with a lighter appetite. Breakfast was again a disappointment - I have never stayed anywhere that didn't serve sausages with a '"full english breakfast". There are signs all over the place warning you not to take your keys out of the pub and a pleasant sign saying if you are in later than 11.00pm you will be locked out!! If you still intend to book here then I would definitely go for one of the courtyard rooms as you wouldn't believe the difference an extra £10 makes! Eat at the Sun Inn, much more digestible food. Perhaps stay there too for a very similar price!
