This is an old coaching inn which has retained much of its character. The building is big, and so are the rooms, which contributes to the relaxing atmosphere. Don't expect 21st century plumbing, or level floors. But the staff give the impression they know how to look after guests, have been doing it for years, and each one can deal with all your requests. The waitress fixed our bedroom TV, and the barman brought us fresh milk. Food is good, traditional and plentiful, and on Friday and Sunday a special menu is very good value.
