Having stayed here for only 1 night, we were pleasantly surprised on arrival with the location and look of the place. The pub seemed by welcoming during the day and nice, a earl old style English country pub.
The rooms are located outside the back of the pub, through the beer garden, and in what looks like an old stable/barn type thing with what I think has 4/5 rooms in total. The rooms are sweet, small, comfy. All nicely decorated, in a simple way, tea/coffee facilities, hanging space, iron (couldn't see ironing board, not that I needed it) TV, trouser press and an en suite.
The shower was dirty, it didn't appear clean in he shower basin at all, but it was not needed until morning so didn't say anything as we had to get off to a wedding.
Michelle who greeted us is lovely. Really friendly, smiley, approachable and everything that a person running a b&b should be. A real diamond.
The only slight fault, apart from dirty shower was the breakfast next morning was cold. Again, I didn't mention as I was hungry,and to be honest it's not the end of the world to have some cold beans and tomatoes!
I could also mention that the likelihood of having an early night here would be minimal if you stay over a weekend as the rooms are above the beer garden, and the pub obviously attracts all sorts of colourful characters that shout, swear and generally act like animals, but again, this is a fully working pub, so wasn't a huge surprise to me and didn't actually make a difference to me as I was so tired!
Overall a nice place that could have some tweaks to make it that little bit better, but Michelle is e standout. She deserves 5 stars, the rest would be 3. Would I return, vary possible, perhaps during the week.
