We regularly travel here for a pint from their Microbrewery. Last evening they had six real ales in the bar room and another three in the lounge bar. I had a pint of Aur Cymru and wanted more. Then having decided, quite rightly not to drive the 40 miles home, we negotiated a good price for a double room, and went into the restaurant for a meal.
We both decided on the Table D'Hote menu and both took the soup and lamb shank options - this was a very wise choice as the food was outstandingly good. A bottle of Chilean Chardonnay was the perfect complement to the meal. The price of the three course meal for residents was £13.50 and we thought that was excellent value.
After desserts, we went back into the back bar (the place where the locals sit next to the log burning open fire) and we both had a pint of Shake, Ramble and Roll, and a pint of the Eden. We retired to bed very happy.
A good nights sleep in a double room was followed with a good full breakfast. Regrettably, the bedrooms are badly in need of renovation, yet there were no complaints about the cleanliness and all in all we thought the room was value for money. The general ambiance of the place is fantastic if you are looking for really good ale, really good food, and a rustic place with lots of history. This Georgian hotel needs a facelift, but given a good customer following it could get back to its former glory. The bog snorkelling and man v horse races in the summer generate a good trade in the summer, but do think about visiting in the winter and trying to help the owners increase their annual income, so that they can invest in this great Georgian hotel, which is a fantastic base for walkers.
We'll be back on a regular basis.
Oh, Ray (customer in the bar), you left your computer on the table. It's now in the back office behind reception.
And Mr Evans (customer in the bar), happy birthday for 7 March.
We love this place and its connection with Screaming Lord Such (it was his campaign HQ). See you soon.
