We had a one night stay with friends on a living social deal. Although having been contacted on my mobile earlier in the day by the Crown to see if we were still staying that evening once we arrived we were told although our friends had a room we had not as they had us down to stay the following night. Even though I showed them the log of the telephone call they still couldn't understand why they had called. Eventually a room was found for us as a couple from St Helens cancelled. Our room was very clean and warm, however our friends room was so cold they returned to the bar for an hour whilst it warmed up. The evening meals were very good and were freshly cooked from local products. However once we had eaten there is very little room to sit and chat. We ended up staying in the restaurant by the log burner that threw out very little heat and the room was cold. We sat on two settees by the fire and the covers needed a good wash. There was another room which was used for breakfasts, it would be a good idea to open this up in the evening for people to sit in and have a drink. There was an open fire in the bar but this had limited seating, there were two real ales on and both were very expensive compared to what we had paid elsewhere in the area that day. The breakfast were very reasonable, and the staff were very friendly.
