Delightfully quaint pub in super location, (no car park) parking on country lane. Good real ale, Betty stogs, Addlestone cider.Obviously well attended by friendly locals.We enjoyed our main course then went in search of staff. When we eventually found someone we were told the kitchen was closed and no pudding was available. (it had turned 9pm)disappointed no staff member had been to check, whilst we were eating.
Our twin bedded room was quite comfortable,clean but not pristine, bedding and towels well laundered. one bedside table was a small fridge, hospitality tray very basic (teabags and a little jar of coffee). The bedroom was over the bar and front entrance so noise did travel easily to the bedroom. As we drifting off to sleep the moving of furniture and activity below our room kept us awake. At 2 am people were heard leaving the pub and the staff retired to bed, again disturbing us with noise on the wooden stairs. (We found out in the morning they had been decorating the bar!!!).
We understood from conversation that only the staff appear to live on the premises, not the owner or manager. The staff were friendly but not geared up to provide B and B accomodation. There was a no frills English breakfast, no fruit juice and one cup of tea - no other choice.
A great place to eat and drink, but whilst it was extremely economical £60 for one night,I wouldn't choose to stay B and B again.(perhaps we were just unlucky).
