I stayed here 1 night when going to a cookery course nearby. I had the single room no.3 It's tiny. It was all right for me as I had minimal luggage but if you have lots of luggage it would be a squeeze. The pub food,and beer where excellent. The service was a disorientating mix of friendly and absolutely awful. The ladies behind the bar in the evening where very friendly. Service over breakfast was terrible. It's relatively late 8:30 to 9:15, I needed to be somewhere by 9:30. I went down for 8:30. The lady serving first told me there would be no breakfast till 9:15, once I had mentioned the sign in the room said 8:30 she proceeded to open all the doors whilst she lit the wood burner leaving me in an icy draught. Finally because I had to leave in a rush I left a couple of things behind in my room. When I went back for them the man behind the bar couldn't have been more surly, grudgingly sending a young member of to look for them. The young guy came down with them a couple of minutes later and couldn't have been friendlier.
