We had a couple of days at the Easter weekend at this hotel which has recently been taken over. The hotel was warm, clean, with fresh linen and towels, but still in need of some TLC but the hosts were at pains to explain that they were having to do things slowly. The food could have been better, steak pie served with only chips, (no veg) and was very dry, as though the gravy had been poured on after, and the meat not cooked in it. Ale batter fish was a bit over cooked - I'm sure things will improve. We had a flat tyre and as we went to fix it, the people from the Dutch Pancake facility offered us tea and pancakes for free! And some guys who were painting the outside of the hotel also offered to help us. The staff were nice, one girl especially who served us in the bar and then at dinner, was particularly chatty and informative. Really lovely. The price of the alcohol was a bit steep we thought and the bar bill was almost as dear as the two nights we spent including breakfast! The breakfast by the way was plentiful and very enjoyable.
