I have to start by saying that the service at this pub hotel really was spectacular and I wish I could remember the name of the man who served us to give him the credit he deserves. The rooms were large and well equipped - we really appreciated the tea and coffee facilities together with sweets and biscuits in our room. They are still pub rooms - not new or plush, but very spacious and clean with everything you need. It was a little noisy at night time when trying to sleep until the pub cleared out but being a very nice pub it wasnt as noisy as a lot of pubs would be. The food was great - even if you are staying upstairs you still need to book a table for dinner as it is so popular. We really appreciated the staff leaving breakfast out for us in the morning as we had to leave very early - they even left us a little note. We really enjoyed our stay.
