Just got back from 4 days in the Flat with our 2x Staffordshire Bull Terriers Sky and Maverick.
We were welcomed by owner Jonty a larger than life character who made us feel very welcome and throughout our stay he couldn't do enough for us.
The flat was perfect for us with its own entrance and small fenced area for the dogs.
The Staff take their lead from Jonty and all made us feel welcome whenever we went into the pub to eat or drink.
The food is locally sourced where ever possible and the steak pie is the best I have sampled for many years.
The food was always of a high standard along with the many real ales which just had to be sampled.
We were on a accomadation only deal so on the Saturday morning I asked Jonty if he could rustle us up some toast orange juice and toast each morning during our stay.
Yes was the answer so lovely fresh bread nicely toasted along with a teapot with 4x tea bags was supplied every morning.
I asked Jonty on Saturday morning how much I owed him for breakfast to which he replied Nothing, a few slices of bread and tea you can have on me a very refreshing attitude today and typical of the man.
The locals were all very friendly and it's obvious this is a local Pub used by locals which speaks volumes for Jontys aim to provide a pub for Locals and Visitors alike in perfect harmony.
In summing up the one thing even Jonty can't guarantee is good weather but I can guarantee you of a very very warm welcome.
