First impression count so they say and pulling up outside this is a nice clean building in a ideal position for the A1 dual carriageway. Once inside I was impressed with the layout of the pub and the decoration with all the wood that's used in it's construction.
We chose a table near the bar and what impressed me was the amount of space this is a large eating and drinking area and I think if it was busy you would still find somewhere to sit. We chose our meals and only had to wait about ten minutes before it arrived so good service there and I found the staff to be friendly. I enjoyed my meal but my wife did not find it any better than usual pub food but for a change I found it very nice. I did notice that they open the doors for breakfast with the pub also being a hotel so I might take a trip down one weekend and save on the dishes at home.
I cannot comment on the bedrooms but I did go to the toilet which are in the hotel corridor down stairs and the deco seemed very nice plus the toilets were very clean.
I'm going to have to make that trip for breakfast to try the Hogs Head out again.More
