This was just a one night stop. Sometimes you take pot luck with this type of pub with rooms hotel. We were lucky. It is very traditional, a Georgian (18th century) building with sympathetic, older modernisation. Our room was clean, but not spotless and comfortable with everything working as it should.
Being an old building, there are plenty of steep stairs, but part of the charm.
We had dinner in the restaurant, which is good quality pub food. On arrival, we were told that there would be a delay as they were extremely busy. In fact, the food turned up within 15 minutes, was freshly cooked, generous portions and tasty.
Breakfast was a bit indifferent - cotton wool scrambled eggs, overcooked bacon and "emulsified fat tubes" sausages (fans of 'Yes Minister' will recognise what I am talking about).
Good value and free onsite private parking. One that I would stay at again.
