This review is just about the food and inn itself as we have never stayed there. We have eaten before and it was ok apart from the heavy pastry, and the inn was full of character and very pleasant staff
This time, the staff were still pleasant, but the food had declined further to the point of severe disappointment and the general state of the inn itself had deteriorated significantly from characterful to neglected (certainly no excuse for paint peeling off the walls!)
Maybe the neglect is due to the large and impending new accommodation building currently in construction? I don't know, but I hope not.
Regarding the meals, the chips had that unpleasant "taste" of overused oil. The pies again were heavy in pastry, the salad was, well, lettuce and nothing else, and the chicken was obviously processed and sauce extremely watery. Not a lot to commend it unfortunately, especially at an average price of £10-£12 per meal
Extremely disappointed to say the least
